Warman couple wins $150,000 on THE BIG SPIN!
“We were planning on going to Ireland; this will help us get there sooner!”
Gary and Wendy Wolitski are Saskatchewan’s newest winners on THE BIG SPIN! The Warman couple were thrilled to discover THE BIG SPIN ticket they purchased won not only $10,000, but a date with THE BIG SPIN prize wheel.
On August 15, Gary stepped up to the Big Spin wheel and spun a $150,000 prize.
“It’s so exciting!” said Gary while claiming the initial $10,000 prize. “When Wendy first showed me the scan, I thought we had won $1,000.”
“When we figured out it was $10,000 plus a minimum $100,000 prize at the event – wow!”
“And oh my God,” Wendy added. “We’re both so happy!”
The couple said they have a couple ideas for their windfall.
“We will probably put it in the bank for a bit,” said Gary. “But we were planning on going to Ireland; this will help get us there sooner than we had expected.”
The couple purchased their winning ticket at Pioneer Co-op – Springs Drive Convenience Store, located at 1860 Springs Dr. in Swift Current.
THE BIG SPIN is a $5 instant ticket with one major difference: players can win cash prizes the same way as with a regular scratch ticket, but can also uncover a ‘Spin Win” which lets them discover their prize through an animated prize wheel at any Lotto Spot retailer. If the player’s Spin Win prize is a “Big Spin”, they win $10,000 PLUS a chance to spin a prize wheel that guarantees them at least another $100,000, and possibly up to $500,000!
Tickets for THE BIG SPIN are available at Lotto Spot retailers throughout the province.
Sask Lotteries is the main fundraiser for more than 12,000 sport, culture and recreation groups in communities across Saskatchewan.
