OLG's The Big Spin

OLG has put a new spin on traditional INSTANT games with THE BIG SPIN.

Launching September 4, 2017, this exciting new $5 game 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 BIG SPIN Wheel at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto.

THE BIG SPIN INSTANT game has three fun ways to win:

1.      SCRATCH – To win an instant cash prize of $5 to $100,000 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 $10,000 or a BIG SPIN.

3.      SPIN – If the animated wheel stops on ?BIG SPIN,? the prize won is an actual spin on The BIG SPIN Wheel at the OLG Prize Centre for a guaranteed prize of $100,000 to $500,000!

“We’re excited to introduce this fresh, innovative INSTANT game to our players,” said Wendy Montgomery, OLG Senior Vice President, Lottery & iGaming. “The anticipation has been building at OLG since the arrival of The BIG SPIN Wheel. For the first time, we?ll actually be able to see a top prize winner when their winning moment happens. We can hardly wait for that first winner to take a spin to see just how BIG their prize really is!”

Odds of winning any prize with THE BIG SPIN are 1 in 3.98. Odds of winning a BIG SPIN are 1 in 1,034,075.

THE BIG SPIN is only available in Ontario beginning September 4, 2017.
