You feeling lucky? Check out the Health Sciences Centre Home Lottery, which has a grand-prize property worth more than $1.5 million up for grabs

"It's the most expensive lottery home in Manitoba history," said Dawne Smithson, vice-president and chief operating officer of the Health Sciences Centre Foundation. "It certainly draws more attention because it's a riverfront property. That's different from homes we've offered in the past."

In past years, the HSC Home Lottery grand-prize homes have been in south Winnipeg neighbourhoods, such as Fort White and Royalwood.

This year, the grand-prize home is in Charleswood, and has been built specifically for the lottery.

"We wanted to offer something new and different and exciting to ticket buyers. We literally purchased property and built the home on it," said Smithson. The result is a home with nearly 5,000 square feet of finished living space and a three-car attached garage.

Thanks to the elaborate property, the HSC Home Lottery has seen a tremendous boost in ticket sales.

"We usually have really strong ticket sales, but this year our ticket sales are going to be really good," Smithson said. "I think ticket buyers are responding to the fact that it's an attractive home, it's a nice riverfront location, and it's just a tremendous cause to be contributing to."

All proceeds from the HSC Home Lottery go toward HSC's Kleyson Institute for Advanced Medicine, a clinical research facility that allows scientists and clinicians access to innovative technology for research purposes.

Tickets are $100 each or three for $250. A five-pack is $375.
