Port Elgin resident wins on the OLG Big Spin

Elizabeth Menage of Port Elgin is the area’s latest OLG winning when she won $125,000with THE BIG SPIN INSTANT game.

A retiree, Menage says she has been a regular lottery player since 2013. “I love to play INSTANT games for the entertainment value,” she shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her winnings. “This is my first big win!”

She brought her ticket to the store after she realized she won a ‘SPIN’. “I saw the wheel going around and I was cheering myself on in hopes to win $20 or $50. When it landed on ‘SPIN’ I was shocked,” she said. “I had to call my sister and tell her right away. She was so happy for me!”

“The wheel felt heavier than expected,” she said about spinning The Big Spin Wheel. “I was very pleased when it landed on $125,000.”

Elizabeth plans to treat herself to a new reclining chair and put some of her winnings aside for a vacation.

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 Vanderwerf’s Your Independent Grocer on Goderich Street in Port Elgin.
