A Detroit woman is going to help her mother after winning $200,000 on the Michigan Lottery’s The Big Spin show.
Chantel Miller, 26, won the big prize after spinning the prize wheel on The Big Spin show hosted by Detroit basketball champion John Salley. Miller was selected to participate in the show after entering codes from non-winning The Big Spin tickets online.
“When I heard about The Big Spin show, I bought tickets pretty regularly hoping to win,” said Miller. “When I got the call to be on the show, I was surprised and excited!
“Winning $200,000 means I can help out my mom, pay some bills, and invest. It takes a huge weight off my shoulders.”
Miller was one of five players selected for The Big Spin show by a random drawing. This was the final second-chance drawing for The Big Spin game. Each player selected spun The Big Spin wheel and had a chance to win up to $2 million. All the players who spun The Big Spin wheel were guaranteed to win at least $100,000.
All told, 20 players were selected to appear on the Lottery’s The Big Spin televised events, which air shortly after evening Lottery drawings. Players won more than $9 million on The Big Spin show.
Each $10 The Big Spin ticket offers players a chance to instantly win prizes ranging from $10 up to $1 million. Players have won more than $20 million playing The Big Spin. More than $55 million in prizes remain, including three $1 million top prizes, four $10,000 prizes, and 107 $1,000 prizes.
In 2019, Lottery players won more than $1.2 billion playing instant games. Instant games may be purchased at the Lottery’s 10,500 retailers across the state.
