Winnipeg woman spins to win $125,000!
March 2 was an exciting day for Sherri Carriere as she stepped up to THE BIG SPIN prize wheel, knowing she was about to walk away with a big windfall – but not knowing yet how much. Moments later, she had an answer: Carriere was suddenly $125,000 richer!
THE BIG SPIN is a $5 Zing ticket with one major difference: not only can players win cash prizes in the same way as with a regular scratch ticket, they can also uncover a “Spin Win” and discover their prize through an animated prize wheel at their local Lotto Spot retailer.
If the player’s Spin Win prize is a “Big Spin,” they win $10,000 PLUS a chance to spin a real wheel at their very own event. The winner will leave the spin event with at least another $100,000, and possibly up to $500,000!
“I couldn’t believe it when I learned I had won a Spin,” she said while claiming her initial $10,000 prize. “I thought I was going to cry.”
The winner said she has a couple of ideas for her $125,000 windfall, including paying off her car loan and sharing with her family.
Carriere purchased her winning THE BIG SPIN ticket from the 7-Eleven Food Store located at 183 Marion Street in Winnipeg.
