Toronto, ON – Kathleen (Kay) Sladek of St. Catharines, come on down! Kathleen lived out a ‘Price is Right’ dream at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto, dropping a chip on a real PLINKO Board to win $400,000 with the new $5 INSTANT PLINKO (Game #2214)!
This is Kay’s second trip to the OLG Prize Centre! “I won $100,000 with ENCORE (PICK 3) in February of 2016,” she smiled. “I like playing the new INSTANT games too, so that’s how I ended up playing PLINKO!”
Kay, 78, said when the clerk scanned her ticket and it landed on PLINKO, she wasn’t sure what it meant at first. “I was shocked – I went home to tell my husband, friends and family. Everyone was excited for me!”
The great grandmother said seeing the real PLINKO Board was beyond her wildest dreams. “When I heard I won $400,000 – the news went straight to my feet. My legs were shaking – it felt so euphoric. I never thought this would happen to me.”
Kay has some special plans for her win. “I’m getting a cuddly, mature cat from the humane society, so I can give it a wonderful life. And I’m going to share this with my family and take care of the people I love. I’ll also buy a new car and make sure to save some for a trip to Las Vegas when it’s safe again.”
$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:
