A $761,000 jackpot made for a great ending to 2016 for a Courtenay man. John Y. hit the second largest slot jackpot ever in B.C. on Wizard of Odds slot game on December 29, 2016.
Wizard of Odds is a five reel, 20-line online video reel game with three bonus features. Young won the jackpot in the game's Cauldron bonus round on a $0.40 bet.
"The screen was showing I won the jackpot," recalled Young. "I was in complete disbelief!"
Once the win sunk in, Young immediately shared the exciting news with his wife.
"I ran into the bedroom and told her, 'I won the jackpot! We're set for life'," laughed Young. "We opened our best bottle of wine and celebrated the night away."
Young says the win gives him and his wife the chance to live the good life.
"We're going to use the money to enjoy life," smiled Young. "We're also going to spoil our grandchildren a lot more!"
