FIRST TOP PRIZE ON THE BIG SPIN WON IN SASKATCHEWAN!
Regina resident wins $10,000; will spin for additional prize from $100,000 to $500,000
A brand-new lottery game on the Prairies has its first big winner; and it’s right here in Saskatchewan! Donny Stilborn of Regina is the first-ever top prize winner on THE BIG SPIN!
THE BIG SPIN is a $5 scratch (or Zing) ticket with a twist—or rather, a spin—on the concept. Players can win cash prizes in the same way as with a usual Zing 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 is a “Big Spin”, they win $10,000 PLUS a chance to play on a physical game wheel. The winner will leave the spin with at least another $100,000, or up to $500,000!
Stilborn bought his winning THE BIG SPIN ticket from the Shell Gas Station, located at 275 Albert Street North in Regina. He said he has been buying THE BIG SPIN since it launched in March. He was thrilled to find he had won a Big Spin event—and even more excited to discover he was the game’s first big winner.
“I get the bragging rights!” he laughed. “I may never be on a big game show; this is my chance!”
Stilborn has received his initial $10,000 prize payment, and he is looking forward to his Big Spin.
“If I win $100,000 or so, I can wipe out my debts and share with my family,” he said. “If I win the $500,000—well, my twin brother has a Camaro with a pretty big engine. Maybe I’ll buy a Hellcat with an even bigger engine, and outdo him,” he laughed.
