STARS LOTTERY returns to Alberta to support critical care, anywhere

ALBERTA, January 18, 2024 – The lottery that goes above and beyond is back with the launch of STARS LOTTERY Alberta. From now until March 21, 2024, people from across the province can buy their tickets for their chance to win thousands of prizes – including one of three grand prize show homes – and be a part of STARS’ mission to provide critical care, anywhere.

“For nearly 40 years, STARS has relied on the support of Albertans to help ensure everyone has access to life-saving care, no matter who they are, or where they are located,” said Katherine Emberly, STARS president and CEO. “With the purchase of every STARS LOTTERY ticket, Albertans enable us to innovate and deliver on our promise to provide the best in critical care wherever, whenever, and however it’s needed.”

As STARS’ biggest annual fundraiser, STARS LOTTERY plays a vital role in the organization’s day-to-day missions – typically raising enough to fund the 24/7 operations of one of its Alberta bases for an entire year. Additionally, every STARS LOTTERY ticket purchased supports the investment in leading-edge technology, research into new areas of care, hiring of the best talent, and most importantly helps save more lives.

With 2,105 prizes to be won, valued at more than $4.8 million, Albertans can support STARS by purchasing tickets online at starslottery.ca or by calling 1-855-STARS-68 (782-7768). With tickets starting at only $30 each, STARS LOTTERY remains the most accessible and affordable major charitable lotteries in the province.

Prizes this year include three grand prize show homes located in Calgary, Edmonton and Lethbridge, a bonus prize Winnebago RV valued at over $241,000, and the Early Bird prize of $500,000 cash. And, new for 2024, STARS is offering more ways to win with Million STARS Daily Cash – which includes 40 daily prizes of $25,000 each – totalling $1 million. A full list of prizes can be found at starslottery.ca/prizes.
