An International Student Wins $250,000 Lottery In Canada!

Jobindeep Singh, an international student in Canada, won $250,000 Canadian dollars in a scratch lottery ticket. He had completed his university term and thought about celebrating it by buying his first Zing (instant scratch) ticket. He bought a ticket at Circle K in the 3700 block of 26th Avenue N.E. on Dec. 17, 2021. Mr. Singh got the cheque dated April 29, 2022.

Jobindeep in a Tuesday news release said, “It was Christmas, so I thought I would try the Christmas tickets, and people always buy The Big Spin tickets.” Little did he know that his life was about to change. 

Everything About It!

Zing lets players win cash prizes between CA$5 and CA$10,000. Also, you can win a so-called “Spin Win”. This lets you spin an animated price wheel at your local Lotto Spot retailer. These tickets are priced at $5 each. 

A Western Canada Lottery Corporation news release said, “If the player’s Spin Win prize is a ‘Big Spin,’ they win $10,000 plus a chance to spin a real wheel at their very own event.” Moreover, “The winner will leave the spin event with at least another $100,000, and possibly up to $500,000.”

Jobindeep said he was so surprised to see a “Spin Win” when he scratched his ticket that he re-checked his mobile app thrice before believing it. On the price wheel, he realized that he would be taking home $10,000. Moreover, he had a chance to do a Big Spin on the real-life prize wheel.

On the 29th of April, Jobindeep stepped up to the real-life wheel and won $250,000. He said, “Oh, I was happy, I’m an international student so going to school is very expensive for me.” So, he says that he will be using this money towards his education. 

According to the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation, the odds of winning a “Big Spin” are one in 1,034,075. Thus the chances are very low. However, the chances of getting any prize with a “Big Spin,” are one in 4.17
