Toronto, ON – Congratulations to Sanjeevan Sarvanantharajah of Markham for winning $900,000 with THE BIGGER SPIN INSTANT game (Game #3148).
Sanjeevan, a 39-year-old father of three, said when he checked his ticket at the store, he wasn’t sure what was going on. “I had no idea I was going to win money! I didn’t sleep for two days!” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings.
Sanjeevan said when he told his wife and daughters, they were all very happy!
He plans to purchase a house and make sure his family is happy. “And maybe we’ll get some takeout tonight!” he smiled.
