Toronto, ON – Lise Scarrow of London took a spin on THE BIG SPIN Wheel at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to win $250,000! Lise won a top prize with OLG’s THE BIG SPIN INSTANT game (Game #3103).
A 66-year-old retiree, Lise isn’t a regular BIG SPIN player. “This was a random purchase,” she shared, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to spin the wheel and collect her cheque. First, Lise uncovered her ticket and won a spin in-store. “The cashier scanned my ticket and I watched the Big Spin message come up on the Customer Display Unit. I wasn’t overwhelmed or excited at the time because I didn’t believe it!”
The married mother of three hasn’t made any plans for her winnings just yet, and so far, her husband is the only one who knows about her win. “I’m still letting it sink in,” she smiled.
“It’s overwhelming,” she concluded.

THE BIG SPIN INSTANT game is an exciting $5 game that combines popular scratch play with prizes revealed in-store by an animated spinning wheel on the lottery terminal screen and potentially, an in-person spin on THE BIG SPIN Wheel at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto.
The winning ticket was purchased at Rexall on Beaverbrook Avenue in London.
