TORONTO – Congratulations to Kent Brown of Port Colborne for winning $150,000 with The Bigger Spin Instant game (Game #2130).  

The 48-year-old small engine mechanic discovered his win while at a retail location. “I said, 'Wow! I won that much?'” he shared, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his cheque. “I was very excited,” he recalled.  

Kent immediately called his mother to tell her the good news. “She was very happy and excited for me too,” he smiled. He plans to pay some bills, purchase a house and put some in savings.  

“It feels like a weight has been lifted,” he concluded.

The Bigger Spin Instant game is an exciting $10 game that combines popular scratch play with prizes revealed in-store by an animated spinning wheel on the lottery terminal screen and potentially, an in-person spin on The Bigger Spin Wheel at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto.  

The Bigger Spin Instant game has three fun ways to win:   

  1. Scratch – To win an instant cash prize of $10 to $150,000 or a Spin prize.       
  2. Watch – If the prize won is Spin, visit any OLG retail location to validate the ticket and watch the animated wheel spin on the lottery terminal screen. Every “Spin” is a guaranteed win! Spin prizes range from $10 to $150,000 or a Bigger Spin.      
  3. Spin – If the animated wheel stops on “Bigger Spin,” the prize won is an actual spin on The Bigger Spin Wheel at the OLG Prize Centre for a guaranteed prize of $500,000 to $1 million!   

The winning ticket was purchased at Avondale on Killaly Street in Port Colborne.
