$1M Jackpot Win in Canadian Casino

$1M Jackpot Win in Canadian Casino Sylvia Bennett, of Alberta, Canada, may be the only woman in the world that is glad she stayed home rather than going to Las Vegas because as a result, she is now $1 million richer.

The plan was to jet off to Vegas with her husband. "Friends of mine wanted to go to Vegas," said Bennett. "But because the Canadian dollar is so low, we decided we'd do a Canadian version of Vegas, and we went to Edmonton for the weekend."

Bennett had her eye on the Slots at the River Cree Resort and Casino last month when she took a seat at the Diamond Millions progressive slot machine. She was in the right place at the right time and could not believe her amazing luck.

"I thought, 'No, no way!' I'm looking at the zeros, and I looked at the guy next to me. And he's like, 'Yes, you won $1 million!'

"And I still didn't believe it."

The champagne popped and Bennett cut into a 30-ounce steak dinner in celebration of the exciting win.

It seems that she doesn’t have big plans for the cash but she’s thrilled to have her mortgage paid off and would like to take a vacation with her family. "My husband wants to see Rome and Cuba," she said.

Since 2012 there have been a total of 14 Alberta casino goers that have won over $1 million on Diamond Millions, including Bennett, according to stats from the Alberta Gaming and Liquour Commission.
  • And look, shes even pictured right there with the cheque in her hands! Okay I know the big cheques aren't the real deal (can you imagine trying to pay one in at the bank!) but I'd say the chances are high this woman didn't have to wait days or weeks to get paid like some Canadian players struggle to do from on-line casinos. I hope she enjoys the money, considering the odds of hitting a million on slots, I'd say shes earned it!
  • Great win ! Like the guy I saw on Youtube that win 2 Progressive jackpot of 24M...YES Twice during is life, what the odds hahah
  • This is amazing thing to happen to anyone. I would have done the same thing. Cut into a juicy streak to celebrate. I wonder if they take 47% for taxes like they do here in the states. If not then she really has it made. I would like to send my congratulations to Sylvia Bennett, of Alberta, Canada. Enjoy your riches.
  • Thats absolutely terrific and amazing winning for that Woman. The million dollars, guys? Could You imagine that sum? It seems that that happy person also not imagine right now, but she will do it after few weeks I think or when the money will reach her bank account. What the unforgiveable win! Hot hit chock-chock! =)
  • wow ! that is such an amazing win and congrats to her she must be over the top happy ! also I know she still has to be in disbelief I sure would be one million dollars playing a slot machine that makes me want to go play at Canadian casinos these usa casinos are being so tight in comparision . so congrats again and good luck all !
  • What a nice win! 1 mililion $ is huge money, it definitively turns life inside out. Hopefully lucky winner will spend money wisely because this amount of money can make your life a lot easier. If you don't consider casino as fun it can change your life in negative way, but this story is a nice one, but rare one. Congratulations to winner, hoping to see more of these news.
  • Congrats to ALL winners of a million or more. They are set for life. Or should be, and can help their fellow man, meaning those in need. Enjoy!!!
  • That is life changing money. Nice to see someone at least leave the casinos with decent profit.
  • Well done to the winner why cant i ever win a jackpot lol.
  • It just sounds so impossible with 1 million. Let alone a jackpot less than 10000. Congratz to her and hope she spend the money wisely. We gamblers have to keep trying and trying. :) Maybe it will pay off one day.
