Toronto, ON – Dusanka 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:
