WHEATLEY WOMAN WINS $400,000 WITH INSTANT

Toronto, ONJulia Reid of Wheatley, come on down! Julia 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 #2215)!

Julia says she is a regular lottery player. "I usually play any game that the retailer recommends," she shared.

Julia, a married mother, says she was out getting her hair and nails done after lockdown when she decided to purchase an INSTANT PLINKO ticket. "I played my ticket in the car when I realized I won a CHIP prize," she said. "I brought it to the store, and that's when I realized I would be coming to Toronto to play the in-person chip drop!"

Julia says her husband cried tears of joy when she told him about the big win.

"I'm thrilled that I won. This allows me to pay my daughter's student loan and complete some home renovations with plenty left over for a happy retirement," 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.

OLG is returning profits from the first three months of sales (January 4 to March 31, 2021) of these tickets to retailers.
