Winnipeg resident wins $175,000 on THE BIG SPIN!
Albert Paupanakis was overcome with emotion when he thought he had won $10,000– but what he didn’t realize was that he was about to win a lot more. The Winnipeg resident’s THE BIG SPIN ticket had actually won him the game’s top prize: $10,000 plus thechance to spin the game’s prize wheel.
At a Big Spin event, winners spin a prize wheel that guarantees they’ll take home at least $100,000– with the possibility of winning up to $500,000!
“I was happy with $10,000; I couldn’t believe when I found out how much more I could win!” he laughed.
After spinning the prize wheel, Paupanakis took home an additional $175,000!
Paupanakis bought his winning ZING ticket from the Gladstone Co-op store while travelling through Gladstone.
“I scratched it at home, and saw I had a ‘spin win,'” he remembered. “I took the ticket back to another store to check it – the clerk said I’d won $10,000, but I saw that the slip also said I won a Big Spin.”
Paupanakis said his windfall will let him fulfill a dream of becoming a homeowner.
“I’ve never had the opportunity to buy a home,” he said. “This changes my life.”
