TORONTO, April 24, 2018 /CNW/ - With his wife in attendance to cheer him on, Terry Restoule of North Bay took a spin on THE BIG SPIN Wheel at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to win $400,000! Terry won a top prize with OLG's THE BIG SPIN INSTANT game (#2097).
"I've been playing the same LOTTO 6/49 numbers for 20 years," shared Terry, a married father of three. "But I also enjoy playing INSTANT tickets – including THE BIG SPIN."
When the 48-year-old stay-at-home dad validated his ticket, the words BIG SPIN appeared, and the lottery terminal shut down. "I had to wait until OLG called – it felt like an eternity!"
Once his big win was confirmed, Terry wasted no time in sharing the good news. "A couple of my friends happened to walk into the store and they took a picture of me with my winning ticket. And then I rushed home to tell my wife, Sibylle, the news."
"When I told her I won a minimum $100,000 prize we did the happy dance. But my wife also said that she'd believe me once she sees the cheque," he laughed.
Terry plans on using some of his windfall to set up education funds for the kids but first there will be a celebration. "We are going to get the whole family together and have a big party!" he smiled.
"This is life-changing for us – life will be much better," Terry 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 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 Esso on Pinewood Park Drive in North Bay.
