TORONTO – Congratulations to Sandra Ash of Welland for winning $150,000 with THE BIG SPIN INSTANT game (Game #3105).

Sandra, a regular lottery player for about seven years, says INSTANT games are her favourite. "I won $10,000 on THE BIGGER SPIN four years ago and I was determined to come back and spin the BIG SPIN wheel!" she shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to collect her winnings. "When I saw I won a SPIN, I went to the store expecting to win $10 or $20. When I saw it land on BIG SPIN, I knew I had won, and I was totally shocked!”

Sandra said she couldn’t get home fast enough to tell her husband the big news.

The mother and grandmother said it was overwhelming walking into the room with the big wheel. "I was stunned when I saw the BIG SPIN wheel land on $150,000. What a wonderful experience," Sandra smiled.

Sandra plans to take a trip out west with her husband. "I will take myself shopping for a little treat and do some renovations around the house. The rest will go in the bank to be saved for the future."

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:

  1. SCRATCH – To win an instant cash prize of $5 to $100,000 or a SPIN prize.
  2. 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.
  3. 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 Avondale on Niagara Street in Welland.
