Surrey woman wins record slot jackpot on PlayNow.com

24/07/2017

April Facey of Surrey is loving her new title as a B.C. slots record holder.

Facey won $866,000 playing Odds of the Gods on PlayNow.com on July 17, 2017 – which is the largest slot jackpot ever won in B.C. Odds of the Gods is a five reel 20-line online reel game with three bonus features. Facey won the jackpot in the game’s Shield Bonus on a $1 bet.

“I had Odds of the Gods on auto spin while I was putting my son to bed,” recalled Facey. “I came back to my computer, saw the screen and turned to my husband and screamed, ‘I won!’”

Facey is a long time PlayNow player and says this win is one of the most exhilarating moments of her life.

“It’s been amazing and fantastic! It feels great to win and now I’m the biggest winner,” exclaimed Facey.

Facey is now able to turn some of her dreams into reality with her winnings.

“Playing the World Series of Poker main event is on my bucket list,” smiled Facey. “This win has given me motivation to play next year. My celebration is going to last a long time!”
