WHEEL OF FORTUNE ($600,000) FOR HUNTSVILLE BIRTHDAY BOY
HUNTSVILLE — What birthday prize.
Frank Lamb won $600,000 when he spun the big wheel in Toronto at the Ontario Lotto Gaming Centre where he went to collect his BIGGER SPIN INSTANT game prize #3150.
Lamb has been playing the lotteries for about 40 years.
“I like to buy BIGGER SPIN tickets because I want to win big,” he said Feb. 17 when he picked up his winnings.
“I was expecting to win maybe $10 or $20 when I checked my ticket at the store. When the wheel stopped at ‘Big Spin,’ I couldn’t believe it. I knew I had to come down to Toronto to spin the wheel.”
Lamb said when he realized he was going to win a minimum of $500,000, he felt great.
“I would have been happy with $500,000.”
“When the wheel stopped at $600,000, I was very excited,” he said after spinning.
“It was nice to have my wife there to experience it with me. I won’t forget this day for a while.”
“Today is my birthday and I have to say, I haven’t had this exciting of a birthday in 78 years.”
Lamb plans to purchase a new pickup truck, complete some work around the house, and share his winnings with his children and grandchildren.
The winning ticket was purchased at Circle K on Main Street in Huntsville.
