$775,685.59 VLT jackpot awarded in La Ronge

Saskatoon, SK – Western Canada Lottery Corporation (WCLC) is pleased to announce a Vault Breaker jackpot prize awarded by the Saskatchewan VLT program. Vincent Thompson of La Ronge was awarded $775,685.59 after winning the grand jackpot on Vault Breaker in the lounge of Kosta’s Family Restaurant on January 22, 2020.


“I was in shock; I couldn’t believe it,” Thompson remembered. “I was shaking so much, I almost couldn’t write my name on the ticket.”


The winner said he plans to put his prize towards buying a house and a new vehicle.


“And maybe some new toys,” he laughed.


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.
