A Macomb woman thought she was going to faint when she won $200,000 on the Michigan Lottery’s The Big Spin show.
Judy Arthurs, 71, won the big prize after her daughter-in-law, Deanna Arthurs, spun the wheel on her behalf on The Big Spin show hosted by Detroit basketball champion, John Salley. Arthurs was selected to participate in the show after entering codes from non-winning The Big Spin tickets online.
“It was such a surprise when I got the call informing me that I was chosen as a The Big Spin contestant and I was so excited,” said Arthur. “When the wheel stopped on $200,000 there were a million things going through my head and I felt like I was going to faint! It is such a blessing. With my winnings, I plan to pay bills and then save the remainder.”
Arthurs was one of five players selected for The Big Spin show in a random drawing. Entries are still being accepted into The Big Spin second chance drawing. Players may enter non-winning The Big Spin tickets at www.MIBigSpin.com for a chance to appear on the televised game show. Five additional players will be selected to appear on the Lottery’s The Big Spin televised events. The final The Big Spin second chance drawing is scheduled to take place on March 1.
Each player selected will spin The Big Spin wheel and have a chance to win up to $2 million. All the players who spin The Big Spin wheel are guaranteed to win at least $100,000.
The Big Spin televised events will air shortly after evening Lottery drawings. Players may submit non-winning The Big Spin ticket Spin Codes at www.MIBigSpin.com. By entering codes, players will earn entries for the drawings for the opportunity to appear on television and spin the big wheel.
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 $11 million playing The Big Spin which launched in September. More than $60 million in prizes remain, including three $1 million top prizes, four $10,000 prizes, and 124 $1,000 prizes.
