SASKATOON — Muhammad Saeed was surprised when his $10,000 win morphed into $800,000 as Saskatchewan’s first winner on THE BIGGER SPIN!
Saeed was thrilled when he discovered his winning ticket netted him a $10,000 prize; he was even more delighted when he spun the Bigger Spin wheel and revealed an $800,000.00 windfall!
“This is really big for my family,” he said during his initial prize interview. “Huge, actually!”
When he initially scratched his $10 ZING ticket, Saeed wasn’t exactly sure what he had won.
“I scanned the ticket and saw that I won $10,000,” he said. “I only learned that I would be spinning the wheel when I brought my ticket to the Sask Lotteries office.”
“The people at the office told me I also won a spin on the Bigger Spin wheel,” he said. “The first thing I could think was: ‘I’ll be able to pay off my house!’”
Saeed said after paying off his mortgage, he has one other plan for his windfall.
“I’m going to share some of the money with my family back home,” he said.
THE BIGGER SPIN is a $10 ZING ticket with one major difference: not only can players win cash prizes in the same way as with a regular scratch ticket, they can also uncover a “Spin Win”, and discover their prize through an animated prize wheel at their local Lotto Spot retailer.
If the player’s Spin Win prize is a “Bigger Spin”, they win $10,000 PLUS a chance to spin a real wheel at their very own event. The winner will leave the spin event with at least another $200,000, and possibly up to $1,000,000!
Saeed purchased his winning ticket in mid-December from Circle K Convenience, located at 2302-33rd St. W in Saskatoon.
