Brentwood Bay’s Pena Elliot ended his summer in style, winning a head-swirling $600,360.73 on PlayNow.com while playing MegaJackpots Siberian Storm

“I was on one of my last spins before I was about to quit playing,” admits Elliot, who won the jackpot prize on August 29, 2021. “But I remembered the rules of Siberian Storm and saw the five icons go across, and I thought that I had won the jackpot. So I clicked ‘continue’ and noticed the jackpot had reset. That’s when I was pretty sure that I actually hit the jackpot.”

Elliot called BCLC’s Customer Support line the next day to be sure.

“Once they figured out what was going on, they called me back and said congratulations. It’s still unreal. I’m just so grateful, and this means less stress for me.”

Elliot says he wants to put his winnings to use to help close family members and eventually build a house. 

“I’d like to build it on one of the islands; I’ve always planned on building as green as possible, with solar panels and everything.”
