Ontario woman loses control after historic OLG ’Price is Right’ Plinko jackpot

Florence Kalu, a personal support worker from Hamilton, Ontario won the largest prize possible in the 'Price is Right' Plinko game offered by OLG. Florence Kalu was making some photocopies and purchased an Instant Plinko ticket at the Blue Willow Variety & Communication on Upper James Street in Hamilton.

“The machine started ringing! I kept asking what I won,” the 49-year-old said.

When Kalu realized she was a top prize winner and was going to get the opportunity to drop a chip on the board in Toronto, she was a bundle of nerves.

“When I dropped the chip – I was lost in the moment,” she said. “Then I looked at the monitor and saw it landed on $500,000 and I was beyond excited!”
