Canadian sports anchor wins $2.5 million lottery on live TV

Vancouver sportscaster Barry Deley was shopping for groceries when he got a call from his Global News co-worker Squire Barnes, who was live on television anchoring coverage of the grand prize drawing in the BC Children's Hospital Dream Lottery. The winning ticket had just been selected from amongst 288,000 entries and, lo and behold, it bore the name "Barry Deley."

There were 288,000 tickets for sale in the lottery, ranging in price from $25 to $33. Over 3,000 prizes were awarded, ranging from $50 gas gift cards to earthquake disaster kits to 2012 BMWs. Deley's was, of course, the biggest.

The total sale of tickets brought in $9 million for the hospital. Taking out the $3.3 million in prizes, the hospital would stand to net more than $5 million from the raffle.

If you were like Deley and wondering whether it was "fishy" that he won, the official raffle rules state that only employees of the hospital and the official auditors were ineligible to enter. Deley purchased his tickets like everyone else.

    Sounds like he won it fair and square.

    Lucky for him he's in Canada.

    The class warfare people in the states would want to string him up.

        Congratz to Barry Deley Cheers 

        never really focused on home lottery but seems like better odds to winning 

        guess GlobalBC will need to look for a new sportscaster soon Type
