Alberta couple wins $800,000 on THE BIGGER SPIN!
Congratulations to Catherine and Raphael Williston, who took home an $800,000 prize thanks to THE BIGGER SPIN!
The Airdrie couple won a "Big Spin" on their THE BIGGER SPIN instant ticket. As a result, they got to participate in a BIGGER SPIN event on January 27, where they spun a giant wheel to discover their prize amount.
The Willistons said the first thing they plan to do with their $800,000 prize is to pay for their dog’s surgery, but they have more great ideas in mind for their windfall.
“We’re going to take a trip for our 25th anniversary and hopefully buy a house,” Catherine said.
The Willistons purchased their $10 BIGGER SPIN ticket from Coopers Drive Shell in Airdrie on October 30 and discovered their win the same day when Catherine scratched her ticket after returning home.
“I kept saying ‘is this real, is this real!?’” she laughed later.
The $10 THE BIGGER SPIN is an instant ticket with one big difference; not only can players win cash prizes in the same way as with a usual instant scratch ticket, they can also uncover a ‘Spin Win’ and discover their prize through an animated prize wheel on the screen at their local Lotto Spot retailer.
If the player’s Spin Win prize reveals a ‘Big Spin’, they win a $10,000 initial prize PLUS a chance to spin a real wheel at their very own spin event. Prizes on THE BIGGER SPIN wheel range from $200,000 up to $1 million.
