Beverly Nadjiwon of Neyaashiinigmiing (Cape Croker) was an instant winner with The Big Spin (Game #3109) when he took home $100,000.
Nadjiwon, a 59-year-old grandfather, said he has been a regular lottery player for decades and INSTANT tickets are his favourite. “I was sitting with my cat when I played my ticket. I saw the prize amount and had to double check because it was so unbelievable,” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings. “When I confirmed it on the OLG app I was in a little bit of shock and surprise. It was the moment my cat became my lucky cat,” he laughed.
The First Nations Councillor said he plans to upgrade his vehicle and will plan a trip to explore a new part of the world. “I feel happy – very joyful,” he 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:
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 Lloyd’s Smoke Shop on Berford Street in Wiarton.
