Saskatoon, SK – Western Canada Lottery Corporation (WCLC) is pleased to announce a Vault Breaker jackpot prize awarded by the Saskatchewan VLT program. Kevin Olsen of Saskatoon was awarded $1,149,131.61 after winning the grand jackpot on Vault Breaker at Coachman Beverage Room on June 9, 2019.

“I was in total disbelief,” Olsen said. “I called my sister and told her I won $1.14 million – she couldn’t believe it. I guess the good news travelled fast because soon the rest of my family was at the Coachman celebrating with me!”

The happy winner said he hasn’t made any major plans for his winnings at this point, but he has started to think about all of his options.

“I’m going to pay some bills and try to invest the majority of it,” he said. “Retirement might actually be in sight now. I’ll keep working for now – but maybe not quite as hard.”  

Vault Breaker is a wide-area progressive that links 4,200 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.

The province-wide jackpot has awarded winners $7,155,791.20 since June 2017. Vault Breaker’s province-wide grand jackpot has now been reset to $500,000.
