Apr 02, 2018

Saskatoon, SK – Western Canada Lottery Corporation (WCLC) is pleased to announce a Vault Breaker jackpot prize awarded by the Saskatchewan VLT program. Craig Hutchison of Regina was awarded $688,054.53 after winning the grand jackpot on Vault Breaker at Barley Mill Brew Pub on April 2.

"I was out with the boys for an indoor golf night. After golfing, we went to the Barley Mill," he remembered.

"I looked over at the guys and said, ‘I have the Vault Breaker Bonus. When the fifth Vault Breaker hit, everyone started jumping and cheering. I stood up with my arms in the air – in shock!"

The winner said he plans to put his winnings towards buying a house. He also hopes to be able to take a dream vacation with his wife for their 10th wedding anniversary.

Vault Breaker is a wide-area progressive that links 4,000 VLT machines across the province. There are three mystery jackpot tiers: the province-wide grand jackpot has a minimum value of $500,000 and pays out before it hits $1.5 million, the regional major jackpot has a minimum value of $5,000 and pays out before it hits $25,000 and the local site jackpot minimum is $100 and pays out before hitting $500. Any of the three jackpot tiers can be awarded when a patron plays Vault Breaker.
