A simple spin has made Prince George’s Marlyne Dumoulin $2.1 million dollars richer, and the winner of the largest ever Powerbucks™ progressive jackpot.
The Prince George woman won the massive jackpot playing at Treasure Cove Casino on July 13.
“I was just in shock. I thought I had won $2,100, but my husband who was sitting beside me said he thought it was a lot more than that,” said Dumoulin. “That night was so surreal … I wasn’t able to sleep or eat for the first two days. I actually have bandages on my fingers from chewing my fingernails.”
Players have a chance to win Powerbucks™ $1 million or more progressive jackpot, which grows as more people place bets across other participating Canadian jurisdictions, including Manitoba, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and P.E.I. A portion of every wager gets added to the progressive jackpot until it’s won. Several slot games offer a progressive jackpot at gambling and entertainment facilities in B.C.
“Celebrating a record-breaking Powerbucks™ jackpot in British Columbia is a thrilling occasion for our players,” said Brad Desmarais, VP of Casino and Community Gaming. “On behalf of BCLC, I’d like to congratulate Marlyne on her win at Treasure Cove Casino in Prince George.”
Created by International Game Technology (IGT), BCLC was the first Canadian jurisdiction to offer Powerbucks™ to its players.
BCLC offers socially responsible gaming entertainment while generating income to benefit all British Columbians. Remember, play for fun, not to make money. For more information, visit GameSense.com.
