Linda Stephens’ favourite slot game on PlayNow.com is Odds of the Gods and on December 21, 2020 the odds favoured her as she won the progressive jackpot, picking up an “unbelievable” $126,500.

“I was playing and it said I won the progressive jackpot, I just didn’t know how much I won,” says Stephens. “When I went back to the main page it said I had an extra $126,500 in my account and that’s when I started yelling for my husband who was working downstairs.”

Stephens says she won the progressive jackpot on only her second spin playing the game.

“I had just started playing, and I think it was a $4 spin that I triggered the ‘shield bonus’ and won the jackpot on,” recalls Stephens. “It’s hard to believe a $4 spin would change my bank account that much!”

Stephens, who owns and operates a small business with her husband in New Hazelton, says she’s still having a tough time believing the win is real.

“We both couldn’t believe it at the time, we were both pretty shocked.”

Stephens says most of the win will go towards savings, but down the road will look at replacing her car.
