TORONTO, Jan. 9, 2018 /CNW/ - With his wife and daughter in attendance to cheer him on, Robert (Bob) Bronson of Brockville took a spin on THE BIG SPIN Wheel at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to win $150,000! Bob won a top prize with OLG's THE BIG SPIN INSTANT game (#2041).
"I've been playing the lottery for many years. I enjoy LOTTO 6/49 and INSTANT tickets," shared Bob, a married father of two and grandfather of two. "When I first saw THE BIG SPIN game at the store, I knew I would try it. I loved the idea of winning the chance to spin a physical wheel!"
Bob's winning ticket was actually purchased by his daughter. "As a thank you for handling her mail while she was away, my daughter got me a lottery ticket," explained Bob. "I played my ticket as soon as she gave it to me. When I scratched the word 'Spin' I took my ticket to the retailer for the next step of the game. I had a good feeling and sure enough, it landed on 'Big Spin.' So here I am!"
"What a great way to start the New Year," smiled Bob. "We are looking forward to taking a trip to Jacksonville or Victoria, and to enjoying our retirement with a bit more peace of mind."
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 BIG SPIN INSTANT game has three fun ways to win:
- SCRATCH – To win an instant cash prize of $5 to $100,000 or a SPIN prize.
- 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 $10 to $10,000 or a BIG SPIN.
- SPIN – If the animated wheel stops on "BIG SPIN," the prize won is an actual spin on THE BIG SPIN Wheel at the OLG Prize Centre for a guaranteed prize of $100,000 to $500,000!
The winning ticket was purchased at Metro on King Street in Brockville.
