It was a successful “stay-cation” for Sylvia Bennett.
The Fort McMurray resident was visiting the River Cree Resort & Casino with her husband and friends when she sat down to play the Diamond Millions slot machine. Not long after, she was having a steak and wine dinner to celebrate hitting the big one.
Bennett cashed in a $1,000,023 prize from the slot machine, becoming just the 14th Albertan to do so on the Diamond Millions machine (they’re located in casinos across the country).
The sawmill worker told AGLC that she’s excited to be mortgage-free, and is looking forward to taking a family vacation to Europe with her family.
