May is lucky for these two Sudburians

Hanmer’s Natasha Campbell won $300,000 playing Plinko, while Sudbury’s Terry Zuk took home $100,000 playing Encore

April may be the cruelest month, but for two Greater Sudbury residents, May is the lucky month.

Natasha Campbell of Hanmer is celebrating after winning a $300,000 prize playing Instant Plinko, while Terry Zuk of Sudbury matched six of seven Encore numbers to win $100,000 in the May 13 Lotto 6/49 draw.

"When I won a chip drop, I didn't know what it was at first. I was unfamiliar with the game," Campbell told OLG Prize Centre staff in Toronto. "I was a little confused at first. Then I was excited to come to the Prize Centre and to drop the chip on the Plinko board!"

The 35-year-old plans to pay some bills and save some for her daughter.

 "We're talking about a vacation and maybe a concert," Natasha said. “It’s awesome – it’s a dream come true.” 

Instant Plinko combines popular scratch play with prizes revealed in-store by an animated chip drop on the lottery terminal screen and potentially, the chance to drop a chip on a real Plinko board at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto.

Meanwhile, Zuk is celebrating his first big lottery win, too.

"You hear the stories about lottery winners, but you never think it will happen to you," he told while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto. "I got an email notification when I found out I won. I didn't believe it." 

Zuk plans to use his win to help his family and invest.
