More Big Wins In British Columbia

This is not the first time a player in British Columbia has snatched an impressive prize. Earlier this year a woman called Angie Lovell from Kamloops managed to win a prize worth 992,000 Canadian dollars by playing the Odds of the Gods slot game on her mobile phone.

She was also traveling when she won the prize, just like Paul Willie. The difference is that she was not staying at a hotel but in her trailer, parked on the banks of the beautiful Shuswap Lake.

Another big slot win was triggered in British Columbia in 2020, but that time it was in a land-based venue. The lucky winner was Joshua Alexander, who managed to trigger a huge win worth 1 million Canadian dollars on a Powerbucks slot machine. He had only played for 20 minutes and spent around 5 Canadian dollars on the machine at Playtime Casino Kelowna.
