Guelph, Ont. man scores $500,000 on Instant Plinko lottery

Somkiat Sengdy of Guelph won $500,000 on Instant Plinko.

There’s no chip on a Guelph, Ont., man’s shoulders after winning on Instant Plinko.

Somkiat Sengdy, a 66-year-old father and grandfather, went to Most Convenient #2 on Speedvale Avenue in Guelph where he purchased the $5 instant scratch ticket.

He won a chip drop at the OLG prize centre, where he had an opportunity to win the $500,000 grand prize on the Plinko board.

The board is much like the one on the popular TV game show, The Price is Right, where contestants drop a chip on the board and it slides down through a series of pins, landing in a slot with a set prize.

Sendgy’s chip landed in the $500,000 slot.
