GREAT-GRANDMOTHER FROM STONEY CREEK WINS $300,000 WITH INSTANT PLINKO

Toronto, ONDusanka Zarkovich of Stoney Creek, come on down! Dusanka lived out a ‘Price is Right’ dream at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto, dropping a chip on a real PLINKO Board to win $300,000 with the new $5 INSTANT PLINKO (Game #2215)!

The 84-year-old great-grandmother says she is a regular lottery player. "I played INSTANT PLINKO because it was recommended by the store clerk," she shared. "I played the ticket in the store where I always buy my tickets. When I won the chip drop, the retailer was so excited!"

Dusanka said she told her granddaughter about her big win. "She asked me what I was going to do next. I told her I had to sleep for three days," she laughed. "I was surprised! I never thought I would win."

She plans to share her winnings with her granddaughter. "She is the star in my sky," she concluded.

$5 INSTANT PLINKO combines popular scratch play with prizes revealed in-store by an animated chip drop on the lottery terminal screen and potentially, the chance to drop a chip on a real PLINKO Board at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto.

There are three fun ways to win with INSTANT PLINKO:

  1. SCRATCH – Scratch the five (5) LUCKY NUMBERS and twenty-four (24) YOUR NUMBERS entirely. Match any one of the LUCKY NUMBERS to one of YOUR NUMBERS, win the corresponding prize from $5 to $100,000 or a CHIP prize.
  2. WATCH – If the prize won is CHIP, visit any OLG retail location to validate your ticket. Upon validation of a CHIP winner, watch the animated PLINKO chip drop on the lottery terminal screen to reveal your prize from $10 to $10,000 or a PLINKO top prize.
  3. DROP – If the prize displayed is PLINKO, you qualify for a PLINKO Event at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to win a guaranteed prize of $100,000 to $500,000.
