In the Spin of Things
The next best thing to winning is reading
about the winners
One happy camper!
been playing THE BIG SPIN since the game launched. It's my favourite
INSTANT game because it's so cool that you can win but not know what
your prize is until you spin the wheel!" shared Justin. "I've been
watching other top prize winners take their big spin on the Ontario
Lottery Facebook page. I'm always so pumped for the prize amount to
be revealed and super excited for the winner. And now it happened to
me – I just can't believe it!"
Justin admitted that he was nervous but also excited before his big
moment. "I couldn't eat and couldn't sleep. But now I'm stoked to
spend my windfall!"
Putting down some roots is Justin's first priority. "I will buy a
big piece of land in Northern Ontario. I love the outdoors – I'm a
country guy at heart. Plus I love animals and would like to see part
of my land being used as a sanctuary."
The 27-year-old also plans to have
some fun. "I have two 25 year old SUVs that need to be fixed up.
I'll restore one of them and use the other for mud-bogging – that's
a type of off-road race through a pit of mud," Justin explained.
Taking care of the women in his life is also top of mind. "My mom
needs a new car and my grandma has never had the chance to travel –
I'd love to send her to Hawaii," shared Justin. "And my girlfriend,
Jenn – I would love to take her on a vacation. She'd be happy with
Cuba but I'm thinking somewhere more exotic like Bora Bora!"
"First things first though – I'm going shopping for a sick pair of
Jordans!" laughed Justin
"Winning the lottery is a much needed jump start. It offers a great
sense of security. I can plan for the future and spoil the people I
love too," he concluded.
THE BIG SPIN INSTANT game is an exciting new $5 game that combines
