Winnipeg winner brings home $500,000 on gifted ticket!

It’s a gift Douglas Taylor won’t soon forget.

The Winnipeg local received a BIG SPIN instant ticket as a birthday present and said he “couldn’t believe his eyes” when he scratched it to discover he’d be getting the opportunity to spin a prize wheel for a shot at up to half a million dollars.

“It’s unbelievable,” Taylor laughed. “Just surreal.”

THE BIG SPIN is a $5 scratch ticket with one significant difference: not only can players win cash prizes in the same way as with a regular scratch ticket, but 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 own event. So the winner will leave the spin event with at least another $100,000, possibly up to $500,000!

On October 18, Taylor stepped up to spin the BIG SPIN wheel. He spun and was shocked when he landed on the game’s top prize; a cool half-million dollars.

When asked what he’d do next, Taylor had a couple of answers – some more pragmatic than others. “Jump up and down a few times,” he chuckled. “And go pay for parking before it expires.”

The happy winner said he’s looking forward to doing a lot more travelling with his recent windfall.

“We are going on a nice little cruise,” he said. “This makes it all that much sweeter.”

Taylor’s winning ticket was purchased from Roblin Esso at 5198 Roblin Boulevard in Winnipeg on August 5.
