Lo­cal man wins big on Big Spin

Windsor Star - - CITY + REGION -

A trip to Aruba and early re­tire­ment for his wife are in the fu­ture plans of Wind­sor res­i­dent Bruce Ch­eswick — thanks to his luck on one of the On­tario Lottery and Gam­ing Corp.’s new­est games. On Wed­nes­day, Ch­eswick went to the OLG’s Prize Cen­tre in Toronto to score a $225,000 win on The Big Spin: The multi-plat­form In­stant game that starts with a scratch ticket and can lead to a mo­men­tous turn on a phys­i­cal gam­ing wheel at the Prize Cen­tre. Ch­eswick — who de­scribed the ex­pe­ri­ence as “eu­phoric” — said he usu­ally plays Pro-Line or other In­stant games, but he de­cided to try The Big Spin be­cause he finds the game con­cept at­trac­tive. Play­ers first scratch their $5 ticket for a chance at prizes rang­ing from $5 to $100,000. If they scratch the word “Spin,” they go to an OLG re­tailer for val­i­da­tion — and to watch an an­i­mated wheel spin on the lottery ter­mi­nal screen. If it comes up “Big Spin,” the player vis­its the OLG Prize Cen­tre for one turn on a six­foot-tall Big Spin wheel. Ev­ery spin wins a prize rang­ing from $100,000 to $500,000. The odds of mak­ing it to the Big Spin wheel are one in 1,090,600. “This prize means liv­ing life a bit more com­fort­ably,” Ch­eswick told OLG staff. Ch­eswick’s scratch ticket was pur­chased and val­i­dated at S & A Con­ve­nience (3750 Walker Rd.).
