Saskatoon, SK – Western Canada Lottery Corporation (WCLC) is pleased to announce a Vault Breaker jackpot prize awarded by the Saskatchewan VLT program. Patti Parenteau of Wakaw was awarded $977,218.80 after winning the grand jackpot on Vault Breaker at the Wakaw Inn on September 6, 2019.

“I always had a feeling I would win this game,” Parenteau said. “I have been telling my friend that I was going to win since the start.”

“Even though I had that feeling, I still screamed and jumped all over the place when the five reels landed on ‘Vault Breaker’,” she continued. “I fell to my knees with excitement!”

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

“I’ll probably pay some bills and put most of the money toward my retirement,” she said. “I might take a trip at some point too. I’ve always wanted to see Bali.”

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 $8,133,010.00 since June 2017. Vault Breaker’s province-wide grand jackpot has now been reset to $500,000.
