$691,127.42 VLT jackpot awarded in Bethune

Saskatoon, SK – Western Canada Lottery Corporation (WCLC) is pleased to announce a Vault Breaker jackpot prize awarded by the Saskatchewan VLT program. Bethune local Lee Ann McCann was awarded a staggering $691,127.42 after winning the grand jackpot on Vault Breaker at the Bethune Bar and Grill on December 26.

“I was stunned,” laughed McCann while claiming her prize in Regina. “Just in shock. I was so excited when I thought was going to win $6,000, but then it told me I’d won the jackpot and the whole bar started to hoot and holler!”

The winner said she plans to use her winnings to help out her daughter and son, buy a lakefront cabin, and then invest the rest.

“There’s this lake where I grew up and I’ve always wanted a property out there,” she explained. “It’s been a dream for years.”

Vault Breaker is a wide-area progressive that links 4,200 VLTs located in approximately 570 sites in 270 communities 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.
