TORONTO, Nov. 6, 2018 /CNW/ - In front of her family and friends and with her husband Remy by her side, Bogdanka Knol of Kitchener took a spin on THE BIGGER SPIN Wheel at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to win $600,000! Bogdanka is a top prize winner of OLG's new THE BIGGER SPIN INSTANT game (#2124).
"My life has changed in a matter of minutes," smiled Bogdanka, 64.
The married, mother of three and grandmother of five started her winning journey when she won $20 on an INSTANT THE BIG SPIN ticket. "I used that prize to buy a BIGGER SPIN ticket," explained Bogdanka. "I scratched my ticket in the store and I thought I'd win $20 again but the virtual wheel stopped on 'BIGGER SPIN!' I was so shocked I started shaking!"
This isn't Bogdanka's first brush with lottery fortune. "A couple years ago, I won $16,500 with POKER LOTTO," she laughed.
Now that Remy can retire, the couple has begun making plans for her windfall. "After paying off some bills and our mortgage, we'll do some travelling and be able to help out the kids financially."
"We are off to enjoy our lives," concluded Bogdanka.
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 Circle K on Doon Village Road in Kitchener.
