WINCHESTER RESIDENT CELEBRATES $500,000 WIN WITH THE BIGGER SPIN INSTANT GAME

Toronto, ONMichael (Mike) Prusila of Winchester is celebrating after winning $500,000 with THE BIGGER SPIN INSTANT game (Game #3153).

Mike, a retired skilled trades worker, is an occasional lottery player who enjoys games like LOTTO MAX, LOTTO 6/49 and of course, THE BIGGER SPIN. “I stopped at the gas station to run an errand and picked up the ticket,” he shared while visiting the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to spin the big wheel. “When I took the ticket in to play my SPIN prize, I expected to win $20. I didn’t even see it land on ‘The Big Spin’. It happened so fast! I was pleasantly surprised to learn I was going to get to spin the big wheel.”

The day the big event arrived; Mike was ready to finally see what his prize would be. “The wheel wasn’t as heavy as I expected it to be. Watching it spin, I was focused on the moment. When it came to a stop, it was nice to know how much I had won. I came here hoping to go home with $500,000 and that is exactly what happened,” he smiled.

“It’s surreal. I am happy and I feel good. I would love to do this again,” he laughed. “I enjoy this game and it has been good to me.”

Mike plans to buy his wife a new car and travel, while investing the rest of his windfall.

THE BIGGER SPIN INSTANT game is an exciting $10 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 BIGGER SPIN Wheel at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto.

THE BIGGER SPIN INSTANT game has three fun ways to win:

  1. SCRATCH – To win an instant cash prize of $10 to $150,000 or a SPIN prize.
  2. WATCH – If the prize won is SPIN, visit any OLG retail location to validate the ticket and watch the animated wheel spin on the lottery terminal screen. Every “SPIN” is a guaranteed win! SPIN prizes range from $20 to $150,000 or a BIGGER SPIN.
  3. SPIN – If the animated wheel stops on “BIGGER SPIN,” the prize won is an actual spin on THE BIGGER SPIN Wheel at the OLG Prize Centre for a guaranteed prize of $500,000 to $1 million!

 

The winning ticket was purchased at Rick’s Gas Bar on County Road 3 in Mountain.
