How to Play the Spin Games in Canada?
First you need to scratch the Play Area for the chance to win prize money or a SPIN WIN. If you uncover a SPIN WIN, things start getting exciting! You’ll have to visit a Lotto Spot retailer to discover what your prize amount is. When a ticket with a SPIN WIN is validated, an animated spinning wheel will appear on the lottery screen. When the wheel stops spinning, your prize will be displayed.
If you win a BIG SPIN you automatically win $10,000, plus a chance to spin THE BIG SPIN or THE BIGGER SPIN WHEEL for a guaranteed prize. BIG SPIN and BIGGER SPIN Events will be held in Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan.
After the player has completed their first valid Spin, he/she will not be provided any more chances to Spin. Any Spin that is not a valid Spin is deemed to be void and shall not result in any entitlement to a Prize; (b) the start position of the Wheel for a Spin will be determined by an electronic draw. WCLC will conduct an electronic draw using its certified digital drawing equipment prior to the Spin Event. The draw parameters will be set to draw 3 numbers at random from among all numbers from 1 to 20 to determine the start position of the Wheel for each Spin
The first number drawn will signify the starting sector position of the Wheel for the first Spin attempt, the second number will signify the starting sector position of the Wheel for the second Spin attempt, where required, and the third number will signify the starting sector position of the third Spin attempt, where required. The Wheel has sector numbers clearly labeled from 1 to 20 so for example if the first number drawn is 4 then the starting position of the Wheel for the first Spin attempt would be sector 4 which is a value of $125,000
The Prize to which the player is entitled shall be determined by the final resting place of the Wheel at the end of the first valid Spin. The Wheel is deemed to have reached the final resting place when it comes to a complete stop and WCLC declares the Spin complete. If for any reason the Wheel moves after WCLC has declared the Spin complete, the position of the Wheel at the time WCLC declared the Spin to be complete shall be deemed as the final resting place of the Wheel; and in the event a player does not complete a valid Spin after three attempts, the Envelope Draw method shall be used to determine a player’s entitlement to a Prize.
if a player is unable to participate using the Spin method for reasons of disability or infirmity he/she may elect to have his/her final Prize determined by Envelope Draw. An Envelope Draw will be used to determine the player’s entitlement to a Prize
The Envelope Draw will consist of WCLC placing each of the numbers from 1 to 20 representing the Prize. Once the numbers are placed in the envelopes, WCLC will place envelopes in a draw box, randomly mix the envelopes and then the player shall select one envelope from the draw box; and the number in the envelope selected by the player shall determine the player’s entitlement to a Prize. For example if the number in the envelope selected by the player is 8, the player is entitled to a $200,000 Prize.
