PARRY SOUND — With his wife by his side eagerly cheering him on, Aaron Deschenes of Parry Sound took a spin on THE BIGGER SPIN Wheel at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to win $650,000.
Deschenes won a top prize with OLG’s new THE BIGGER SPIN INSTANT.
“I’ve been playing the lottery since I turned 18. The most I’ve won prior to this was $500,” explained the 43-year-old welder.
He scratched his ticket on his lunch break and revealed a SPIN prize. “When I checked my ticket at the retailer, the machine stopped on ‘BIGGER SPIN.’ I was in total shock and my family could not believe it either,” he laughed.
The married father of two plans on buying a new house, saving for his children’s future and paying off some bills.
“This win is incredible. You can’t believe it when it actually happens,” he said.
THE BIGGER SPIN INSTANT game is a $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 winning ticket was purchased at Lane Family Pharmacy on Pine Drive in Parry Sound.
