TORONTO, Feb. 22, 2018 /CNW/ - Arriving by train to the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto from her hometown of Windsor, Anne Hammerschmidt stepped up to take her spin on THE BIG SPIN Wheel. Anne won $200,000 with OLG's THE BIG SPIN INSTANT game (#2097)!
"I've been playing the lottery for about 20 years," shared Anne, a retired secretary. "After I played my BIG SPIN INSTANT ticket at the store and saw that I was a winner, I was very excited."
But it wasn't until Anne, 82 years young, validated her ticket that she learned that she had won a top prize – and the chance to travel to the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to spin the BIG SPIN Wheel. "I was very happy," smiled Anne. "What an opportunity!"
Anne plans to upgrade her living space with her new-found fortune. "I'll be able to move into a two-bedroom apartment – it will be nice to have some more space," shared Anne. "I'll also be sharing some of my prize with my loved ones."
"This win makes life a whole lot easier for me," concluded Anne.
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 Downtown Cigar Shop on Ouellette Avenue in Windsor.
