Settling in for a night on the lake, Kamloops resident Angie Lovell was hoping for sweet dreams as she played her last few rounds on PlayNow.com’s mobile-only Odds of the Gods slots game, only to be surprised with something better: a massive prize of $992,940.48.
While out at her trailer on the Shuswap, Lovell decided to play a bit on PlayNow.com from her phone before calling it a night.
“As I played, my wins kept getting bigger and bigger,” said Lovell. “I got into a bonus spin, and by then I was getting tired, dozing off a little, when I got a message saying that I had won the progressive jackpot!”
Lovell waited until the morning for the reality of her life-changing win to set in.
“I didn’t believe it. I waited until the morning to call in and confirm that it was real.”
To celebrate, she had a nice dinner on the lake with her daughter and her daughter’s partner, during which they talked about plans for the prize.
“I’ve helped my son out and I would love to help my daughters now. I will also put money aside for my retirement,” said Lovell.
In addition, Lovell said she is thinking about doing some updates to her new house to make it a prime location for entertaining, buying a new truck and paying off her mortgage.
“I feel stunned,” said Lovell. “A big weight has been lifted off my shoulders.”
