FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BOISE, Idaho – “This is unreal!” exclaimed Tim Rowland when he claimed his winning Big Spin ticket and found out he would be visiting Boise Towne Square for a chance to win up to $125,000. The warehouse worker from Nampa bought his ticket after work last week from the Maverik by the sugar beet factory on Northside Boulevard.
“My wife Laura and I play $20 a week. We get Big Spin, Monopoly, maybe a $10 ticket,” explained Rowland about when he got the ticket. “When I got the first digital spin, and saw it, it didn’t show on the screen that I’d won any money. It said I had to contact the Lottery. I thought I’d won $1,000.”
The long-time Canyon County resident showed up for his Big Spin at Boise Towne Square early on Wednesday afternoon before a crowd of 50 people including friends and family. His spin earned him $75,000.
Rowland would like to use his winnings to find a home in the Treasure Valley. For selling the winning ticket, Maverik earns a bonus of $7,500.
This was the second top prize-winning ticket from the third edition of the popular game, The Big Spin. Since debuting last summer, 14 players have won the chance to participate in The Big Spin event. There are four top prize tickets remaining in this edition, each with the opportunity to visit Boise Towne Square and spin the big wheel for a chance to win up to $125,000.
