A Huron County woman is planning a big celebration in her hometown after winning $1 million on the Michigan Lottery’s The Big Spin show.
Aimee Krull, of Port Austin, won the big prize after spinning the prize wheel on The Big Spin show hosted by Detroit basketball champion, John Salley. Krull was selected to participate in the show after entering codes from non-winning The Big Spin tickets online.
“When I saw the Lottery caller ID come up on my phone, I knew instantly that I had been selected to be on The Big Spin show and started crying,” said Krull. “I have so many emotions running through me after winning $1 million. It is such a dream! I am going to have a big party in Port Austin to celebrate with everyone.
“With my winnings, I plan to purchase a car, complete home improvements, and take a vacation. Winning this prize provides a sense of financial relief.”
Krull 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.
In 2021, Lottery players won more than $1.8 billion playing instant games. Instant games may be purchased at the Lottery’s 10,500 retailers across the state.
