One lucky 57 year old woman is beginning her new life as a millionaire after winning a $1.2 million progressive slot jackpot at an Indian Reservation casino in Hogansburg, New York.
The woman, Ms. Matti Breault, decided to enjoy a night out after finalizing her divorce and losing her job a few months earlier. The casino was offering a $2000 prize giveaway, and she was hoping her luck improved and she might win a few hundred dollars to help with the bills.
When the slot machine she was playing began to loudly make noises she never heard before, she thought that she won the $2000 giveaway prize.
A nearby player told her that she hit the big one as Ms. Breault explained herself – “This lady over here is saying, ‘You won the mega million.’ And I’m saying, ‘Nope, not me. There’s something wrong with the machine. I came home and I fell asleep on the couch for about two hours and I woke up thinking oh my God, what a dream, unbelievable, you know? Then I looked over and saw the check and I started crying all over again.”
This win could not have come at a more fortunate time for the lucky winner, as she’s been having a tough patch in life over the past few years. The bank foreclosed on her house, she lost a sister to cancer, a brother and a sister-in-law died in a tragic snowmobile accident and her mother passed away a year earlier. Bad luck seemed to follow her no matter where she went.
The cheating husband and the lost job were the least of her worries.
The $800,000 (after taxes) should completely change her life 180 degrees, and her x-husband has already called, to make sure he will be a part of that change.
That's how you celebrate divorce in style!
