Sisters win $4.9 million slot jackpot

19 February 2007

PORT PERRY, Ontario – (PRESS RELEASE) -- We all have dreams of winning the big one, and for Joanne McLeod, Norma Lewis-Lamoureux, Kim Clowes, Kim Potts and Susan Potts, five of seven sisters, their dream was turned into a reality at the Great Blue Heron Charity Casino. On Friday, February 16th 2007 each of the ladies left the Great Blue Heron Charity Casino almost One Million Dollars richer, representing their share of over $4.9 Million Dollars won while playing the Megabucks Wide Area Progressive Slot Machines.

The sisters were on a girl's weekend when Joanne McLeod hit the Megabucks jackpot at 11:01PM. The "Life Altering" payout of $4,956,920.00 was a Great Blue Heron Charity Casino record, dwarfing the previous record set by Ken Morris on September 6th, 2006 when Ken won $2,056,353. This was also another milestone for the casino as it was the third time the Megabucks jackpot has been won at the Great Blue Heron, and the third largest Megabucks jackpot ever in Ontario. Megabucks is a progressive prize slot machine that links all commercial and charity casino sites within Ontario.

These wonderfully effervescent ladies intend on using a portion of the money to build a larger house for their niece to help raise her six children.

"This is amazing. This is going to be life changing; I'll pay my bills & help my girls". My daughter will now no longer have to work three jobs", beamed Susan Potts.

Kim Potts said that her husband would now get his dream corvette.

"I was at your fair establishment...when the lady won the big one-Megabucks! What a hoot!" exclaimed a Great Blue Heron Charity Casino patron in attendance the night of the win.

"We are so excited for these wonderful ladies," says Director of Slot Operations Stacy Millar. "This record jackpot is a great win and we couldn't be happier for them".
