This week, the British Columbia Lottery Corporation has revealed one more major winner from its PlayNow.com platform. The name of the winner is Angie Lovell, who has won the amazing CA$992k by playing the mobile-only Odds of the Gods slot game. The winner almost lost hope of winning when in her last rounds she won the amazing progressive jackpot.
The BCLC is the regulator of all gambling and lottery options in the province of British Columbia. Its PlayNow platform is the only regulated gaming website in the province and its offers lottery, sports betting, and casino play in a safe and responsible manner. All of its proceeds are reinvested into the province to fund education, healthcare, and many charitable organizations.
One Happy Winner
Ms. Lovell who claimed her cheque at a BCLC office shared some more details on her major jackpot win. She explained that while she was out at her trailer on the Shuswap, she decided to make a few spins of the wheel from her mobile device on PlayNow.com, before heading back home. And to her surprise, she triggered a progressive jackpot worth CA$992,940.48.
The winner shared that during her last round, her spins got bigger and bigger wins, and then she won a bonus spin, and she was even getting tired when the message of a jackpot popped up on the screen. She then waited until the next morning, so the news can settle, and she contacted the Crown corporation to confirm that it was real.
And in order to celebrate the special occasion, she had a nice dinner by the lake with her daughter and her daughter’s significant other. There they discussed ways of spending the life-changing prize. Ms. Lovell said that in the past he helped her son and with the money now she will be able to help her daughters as well.
She also intends to put some of the money aside for her retirement and is also considering some home renovations to her new house and making it a central location of fun. In addition to that, with the mega prize, she also wants to buy a new truck and pay off her mortgage. Lastly, she shared that with the prize a huge weight has been taken off her shoulder.
Fort St. John Winning
Back in April, the BCLC also announced that Kyung Lee from Fort St. John has won a hefty CA$766,705.57 prize by playing Cleopatra MegaJackpots on its PlayNow portal. Mr. Lee was playing the slot game at his restaurant and the game displayed “You Won”. Initially, he could not believe his own luck and started to walk around the kitchen in excitement.
Sports Betting Record
Besides exceptional lottery and casino offerings, PlayNow also comes with a plethora of premium sports wagering offerings. And earlier this year sports fans set a new handle record on the platform by wagering approximately CA$2.1 million during the Super Bowl weekend. This is double the amount of money wager in comparison to last year’s Super Bowl. And over 70,000 bets were placed during the record-setting weekend.
