$250,000 BIG SPIN prize won in Manitoba!

Selkirk resident spins his way to a major prize

Jim Donnelly of Selkirk is Manitoba’s first top prize winner on THE BIG SPIN! The Selkirk man was thrilled when the prize wheel came to a stop and revealed a $250,000 prize.

THE BIG SPIN is a $5 Zing ticket with one major difference; not only can players win cash prizes in the same way as with a regular 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 is a “Big Spin”, they win $10,000 PLUS a chance to spin a real wheel at their very own event. The winner will leave the spin event with at least another $100,000, and possibly up to $500,000!

Donnelly bought his winning THE BIG SPIN ticket from the Red River Co-op Food Store located at 335 Main Street in Selkirk.

He could not believe his eyes after he scratched his ticket and checked it at the store.

“I’m always excited to win any prize,” he said. “I thought I had won $10,000. I couldn’t believe it when I found out I got to spin the wheel for even more!”

“I’ve been playing lotteries for years; it’s a real dream come true for me to win this prize.”
