St.Catharines man and his lucky spin

A St.Catharines man is celebrating a lottery win.

Eugene Kilbride was the lucky winner of the The Big Spin Wheel at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto and has a $300,000 cheque to cash.

The $5 game combines scratch play with prizes revealed in-store on an animated spinning wheel on the lottery terminal screen and potentially, an in-person spin on the wheel in Toronto.

First Eugene won on the scratch ticket, then he visited the store which validated the ticket and he watched the animated wheel spin on the lottery terminal hit 'BIG SPIN'.

He then headed to Toronto to try his luck on the Big Spin Wheel for a guaranteed prize of $100,000 to $500,000.

Eugene made out with $300,000.

The winning ticket was purchased at Frank’s Milk on Hartzel Road in St. Catharines.
