The series of events that led to the winning outcome of one retired Saguenay man began on the evening of the 25th of October 2019. The player, a man in his late fifties who wishes to remain anonymous for his own personal reasons, picked the ideal night to walk away from a millionaire. The story unfolds after the retired gentleman made a small deposit of just $2.25 at one of the most popular casinos in the world. Located in La Malbaie, a distance away from Canada, the Casino de Charlevoix was the best choice of places to visit during his abroad vacation.

When the anonymous Loto – Quebec sat in front of the slot machine that is located just inside the renowned land based casino establishment, he played a few initial spins that tallied up to under $3.00. This was exactly when the machine lit up the lobby and generously offered exactly $1,196,769.

Needless to say, the massive win has been drawing attention to the casino, to which the manager responded that this was the biggest jackpot win in the lifespan of the Casino de Charlevoix.

Naturally, there have been many queries as to which video slot game has paid out such a generous amount. The answer? Powerbucks. Developed by the leading brand IGT, players are encouraged to play with minimal deposit amounts to stand the chance of unlocking millions in cash rewards. IGT has been one of the gaming giant developers since the dawn of slots gaming and is one of the first software developers to have rewarded a player with that kind of money in La Malbaie.

Regardless of this IGT slot game paying out one of the biggest jackpot wins in the history of Quebec land-based gambling, there have been a number of other IGT slots games to have paid out handsomely.

The Outcome

After the winner, a mysterious family man from Canada was awarded the enormous amount of cash from one simplistic slot machine, he was then invited by the casino’s leading chief operating officer to celebrate this life-changing win in the executive VIP casino lounge. The winner’s family was in attendance and chose to join him on his recent victory of over one million dollars.

Quebec is renowned for having a long history of satisfied players and Loto-Quebec has rolled out over 15 wins in the past few years paying out over $1 million in rewards to each winner. The outcome has brought incredible attention to the casinos in Quebec and some of the stories, although not as intriguing as a mystery man winning over $1 million, have brought much needed attention to the country.

Quebec has also recently been making international casino news after revealing that players from the region pour more money into casino gaming than initially thought. The irony, however, is that the winners are usually foreigners visiting the much admired lands of Quebec and that the winnings taken are more often than not higher than imagined.

With the recent introduction of a more strategic and developed system designed to target online players, it is thought that many more Quebec casinos will be attracting new players and locals too will soon enough be basking in the glory of wins.

With all the media attention that has been garnered after this victorious win, it has been said that the land-based establishment, Casino de Charlevoix, has been attracting much appreciated attention and is about to be the next holiday destination attraction due to the great rewards it brings. After all is said and done, there is no doubt that the mystery winner of $1,196,769 would most assuredly recommend playing any IGT slots game in Quebec.
