Lonnie's 'Big Spin' leads to $75K prize

While he plays the occasional scratch ticket, Lonnie Dahl of Priest River said he saw the Big Spin game and decided to buy a few tickets because it looked fun. That chance purchase led to Dahl making a trip to Boise to be the first jackpot winner of the Idaho Lottery's newest game, the Big Spin. And by the time the 6-foot-plus wheel stopping spinning, Dahl had won $75,000. Dahl's winning ticket, purchased from Whitley Oil Exxon in Priest River, earned him a trip to Boise to spin the Lottery’s Big Spin Wheel during a public event at Boise Towne Square.
