Local woman wins record $2.1M slot machine jackpot

It just took one spin to see Prince George's Marlyne Dumoulin win a record-breaking B.C. slot jackpot worth more than $2.1 million on July 13 at the Treasure Cove Casino.

"I was just in shock," Dumoulin said. "I thought I had won $2,100, but my husband, who was sitting beside me, said he thought it was a lot more than that. That night was so surreal... I wasn't able to sleep or eat for the first two days. I actually have bandages on my fingers from chewing my fingernails."

During a Powerbucks jackpot the amount of money grows to

$1 million and more as people continue to place bets across participating Canadian jurisdictions. A portion of each wager gets added to the progressive jackpot until it is won.

"Celebrating a record-breaking Powerbucks jackpot in British Columbia is a thrilling occasion for our players," Brad Desmarais, VP of Casino and Community Gaming, said. "On behalf of BCLC, I'd like to congratulate Marlyne on her win at Treasure Cove Casino in Prince George."
