Saskatoon, SK – Western Canada Lottery Corporation (WCLC) is pleased to announce a Vault Breaker jackpot prize awarded by the Saskatchewan VLT program.  Doug Joel of Elrose was awarded $699,559.51 after winning the grand jackpot on Vault Breaker at Elrose Tavern on October 9, 2019.


“I stopped in at the tavern to get a pizza, and decided to play some VLTs while it was cooking,” he said. “I was in such disbelief when the Vault Breaker symbol and the prize amount came up!”


The excited winner said he plans to use some of his windfall for a vacation, and he plans to invest for his retirement.


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 $8,832,569.51 since June 2017. Vault Breaker’s province-wide grand jackpot has now been reset to $500,000.
