Diamond Millions Progressive Jackpot
PIcture of Diamond Millions $2,501,464 Progressive Slot Win at Deerfoot Inn & Casino

Earlier this week, a married couple celebrating their anniversary at the Deerfoon Inn and Casino hit a $2.5 million jackpot on the Diamond Millions slot. This represents the largest slot machine prize ever paid out in Alberta and more than double the previous highest ever jackpot win of $1.2 million.

According to the casino’s assistant general manager, Jane Szabo, the man sat down at the slot machine minutes before the big win and when he hit it he was in disbelief. He just kept looking around like he didn’t believe it at first and then asked a member of the staff to get his wife who was playing at a nearby machine.

The couple were quickly reunited and the celebrations began as they were being congratulated by other casino patrons.

To win the jackpot, players have to wager the maximum of $3 per spin. All of the machines in the province are linked by a network.

The middle-aged couple declined to be identified.

Congratulations and happy anniversary!!
