Playing at online casinos means trying out various casino games and can occasionally lead to lucky wins. Now and again, a player manages to hit a spin that produces a life-changing win.
We look at some of the most magical wins players have struck over the past year.
A Very Merry Christmas for B.C.
It’s not always the case, but for some players, patience is a virtue that gets rewarded with a big win. As was the case for B.C., who managed to strike a CA$34,000 win on 777 Super BigBuildUp™ Deluxe™ at Yukon Gold Casino in December 2022.
“I had been playing 777 Super BigBuildUp™ Deluxe for a while, watching the value grow. I hadn't had any luck for a while but had a couple of small wins I kept playing with. I was ready to withdraw it all last Saturday night.”
Christmas is a time of giving, but not all have the opportunity to go all out splurging on lavish gifts. For this household, the decision was made to keep spending to a minimum. After wrapping Christmas gifts the Sunday afternoon, B.C. decided to play for a few hundred bucks and relax.
“I was almost ready to stop when the win hit, not wilds this time, but the pot, and with a 5x multiplier!”
She couldn’t believe her eyes and immediately ran to tell her husband, who was gaming online with a friend at the time. It was a complete shock and Christmas surprise. Each Christmas, most spending is directed towards the kids and grandchildren.
Her daughter is a single mother who homeschool’s the kids and trains daily as a boxer. She is going to Nationals in February, and the lucky winner normally takes leave from work to care for the grandkids. Only this time, she can travel with her and take the kids along so they can all watch her compete.
Thanks to the festive miracle, there was a little extra under the tree for Christmas for everyone to enjoy.
Finally, Free From Debt
J.W. is a lucky punter who claimed an incredible CA$47,000 win on Casino Rewards Midnight Assassin slot at Yukon Gold Casino in December 2022.
He expressed his joy at the amazing windfall, saying:
“Thanks for this! It was a relief to finally pay off debt for my wife and me.”
First, the player wondered if it was real and then what it would mean. For this player, the win meant paying off loans and debt piling up over the past year.
A Veterans Winning Tale
For L.T., the win holds plenty of possibilities, with an old house in serious need of renovations and vacation three years overdue. The lucky player would also like to return to school and continue learning. The cherry on top for L.T. is having money for their upcoming nuptials!
“I'm also getting married next year, so a honeymoon would be great! And, of course, keep some for savings and emergencies!”
When asked what his favourite part of the casino and games are at Captains Cook Casino, L.T. said,
"My favourite part is the graphics. To be honest, each game is so different and offers so many different features.”
A Moment to Breathe
D.S. won CA$96,500 playing Arianna and 9 Bass at Luxury Casino in December 2022. For this player, the win came as a huge relief.
“I cried. God knows I'm going through a lot. Working pay check to pay check is not easy. Winning has given me an opportunity to clear most of my debts.”
The winner plans on taking some time off from work to heal. Playing games has always been done to win a chance to focus on health issues. Their main desire is to be healthy, happy and take care of others.
All For The Kids
M.I. won more than $21,000 playing Lucky Rainbows at Casino Classic in November 2022. With a family of 5 kids, a win like this brings great joy and relief
When asked about their favourite part of playing at Casino Classic, M.I. said,
“Still winning. Even smaller victories have brought me a lot of joy!”
The joy from the win comes not from what this lucky winner will be able to do for themselves but rather from the thought of being able to spoil the kids.
Nice Guys Can Finish First
32-year-old father, Michael Clark, is easily the most likeable jackpot winner of all time. A humble Newcastle local that mistook his jackpot for something a couple million less than it was.
Today known as Micky Millions among his friends, Clark hit a massive £5.4 million progressive jackpot playing King Kong Cashpots slots at Betfred Casino.
“I got onto a bonus round expecting a little win of £100 or something. I was lucky enough to get onto the Jackpot King. I was the lucky guy who landed on the top. I was the lucky guy who landed the jackpot.”
Clark was spending a relaxing evening at home with his fiancée when he decided to take a few spins on the game. At first, he mistook the jackpot total, thinking he won £5000. He quickly realised his mistake with the total looking ‘more like a mobile number’.
While this player struck the jackpot, he also managed to win the hearts of many. The Founder of Betfred Casino, Fred Done, said,
“This proves nice guys can win. Michael is the most worthy of the winners. It is brilliant news for this smashing couple.”
Clark is a care worker at a local mental health unit, and while he is currently on vacation sorting out everything, he and his fiancé are planning to return to work. While these millions in winnings change everything financially, they are determined to stay grounded and grateful.
Perfect Timing for a Windfall
D.R. won CA$10,000 playing Mega Moolah at Zodiac Casino in October 2022. This lucky player was sitting at their dad’s playing games, and after winning a few dollars, decided to go to Mega Moolah. While small wins have always been on the cards, the big win was a complete surprise. This winner sat and stared as the wheel showed the amount won.
And it couldn’t have come at a better time! When asked how they plan to spend the winnings, D.R. said,
“My brother's house caught fire maybe 3 hours after my win, so I will be helping them get back on their feet and fixing up my car for the winter!”
According to D.R., it’s their go-to game as it provides a lot of entertainment value when their balance is low. This is because the game has a reasonably small max bet and is very generous with the number of Scatters it delivers per spin.
