A Salmon Arm woman is three quarters of a million dollars richer following an 80 cent spin on a “Wheel of Fortune” lottery play.

It was supposed to be the last spin of the day on PlayNow’s Mega Jackpots Wheel of Fortune On Air, but that last spin was worth $762,395.26 to Baillie Bridle of Salmon Arm.

“I was playing for a bit and said I’d finish playing after the one final spin. The universe all seemed to come together with that spin. I can’t even begin to wrap my head around it – it’s so shocking, so surreal,” Bridle says.

It was Bridle’s first time playing Mega Jackpots Wheel of Fortune On Air. She normally plays Blackjack on Live Casino, but decided to try her luck on slots for fun.

"I played the 80-cent spin, and an envelope flew down saying I had won a second-chance draw for the Mega Jackpots prize, and it said I won,” said Bridle. “When I found out just how much I won, I was just in disbelief. I originally wanted to make it a surprise for my husband, but I just had to tell him right away,” she says.

The $762,395.26 will allow Bridle’s family to live more comfortably, she says.

“We might buy one luxury item – a boat, since we’re right by the Shuswap!” Bridle says.
