A Windsor man has won one million dollars.

Saban Arayan won the prize with the OLG’s Bigger Spin Instant game.

The $10 game works by combining scratch tickets with prizes revealed in-store by an animated spinning wheel on the lottery terminal screen. It also offers the possibility for an in-person spin on the “Bigger Spin” wheel at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto.

“I watched the wheel land on Bigger Spin on the lottery terminal – I had happy tears in my eyes,” Arayan said. “I was shocked.”

After the 49-year-old restaurant owner learned he was going to Toronto, he said he went back to his restaurant to share the news with his wife.

“I gave her a big hug and said, ‘God blessed me with you 29 years ago and now I will bless you with my lottery win.’”

Arayan said this win will enhance his life.

“I am excited to surprise my family with some gifts and will use some of my winnings to pay down my mortgage and maybe buy a new car,” he said. “Then I’ll save some for a nice vacation when the pandemic has ended.”

The winning ticket was purchased at Mac’s on Howard Avenue in Windsor.
