A Selkirk man won big on a $5 lottery ticket.
Jim Donnelly picked up his Big Spin scratch ticket at the Red River Co-op Food Store on Selkirk’s Main Street.
The ticket is slightly different than most scratch tickets, in that if the prize is “big spin”, the winner gets $10,000 plus a chance to win even more by spinning a literal prize wheel.
Donnelly’s spin netted him a $250,000 prize.
“I’ve been playing lotteries for years,” he said. “It’s a real dream come true for me to win this prize.
“I’m always excited to win any prize. I thought I had won $10,000 – I couldn’t believe it when I found out I got to spin the wheel for even more!”
