Unbelievable second big lottery win this year for a Mississauga man

To say Jeffery Gurczenski is on a winning streak would be a huge understatement.

The 64-year-old Mississauga man, who’s retired, recently won $150,000 playing The Bigger Spin Instant Game.

Just a few months earlier, he won $91,000 playing a Poker Lotto All In ticket.

Gurczenski said that when he uncovered a “spin” on his ticket, he went to the store to finish his play.

“When it landed on $150,000, my heart was racing. I was so happy. I called my friends when I went home; they were so happy for me,” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his big cheque.

The lucky winner plans to purchase a condo with his latest winnings.

“It’s jaw dropping,” Gurczenski said in summing up his good fortune.

The Bigger Spin Instant Game is a $10 game that combines popular scratch play with prizes revealed in-store by an animated spinning wheel on the lottery terminal screen. Potentially, players can also win an in-person spin at the OLG Prize Centre.

The winning ticket was purchased at Mac’s, on Dixie Rd. in Mississauga.
