TORONTO, March 6, 2019 /CNW/ - With his daughter by his side to cheer him on, Clarence MacKenzie of Cambridge took a spin on THE BIGGER SPIN Wheel at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to win $600,000! Clarence won a top prize with OLG's new THE BIGGER SPIN INSTANT game (#2125).
"I won $11,000 just a couple years ago so I feel like I'm on a bit of a streak," laughed Clarence, 75. "I'm an avid lottery player – I like to go for the games with big prizes."
After scratching his ticket to reveal a SPIN prize, Clarence, a retired crane operator, knew he had to take his ticket to the retailer to watch his spin. "When the virtual wheel landed on BIGGER SPIN, the retailer yelled that I won. I saw that I'd won, which meant going to spin the actual wheel at the OLG Prize Centre," he smiled. "It was pretty neat and I felt wonderful!"
The married father of two and grandfather of four will be spreading the lottery love. "I'm so happy to have won and to be able to share this with my family. I plan to help out my daughters," he smiled.
THE BIGGER SPIN INSTANT game is an exciting new $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:
- SCRATCH – To win an instant cash prize of $10 to $150,000 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 $150,000 or a BIGGER SPIN.
- 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 $1,000,000!
The winning ticket was purchased at Zehrs on Conestoga Boulevard in Cambridge.
