Toronto Player Lands $3.2 Million Jackpot

Canada isn’t the place that comes to mind when casino fans are looking for a place to visit so they can play casino games. But Canada has some casinos to offer and one of them happens to be Woodbine Casino.

This casino recently had a visitor. The 50-year-old Marcelo Loyola decided to visit the venue and play the Wheel of Fortune slot machine. The machine proved very fortuitous indeed, as he managed to land a progressive jackpot of $3.2 million. He stated it was his girlfriend’s favorite slot.

He Played His Girlfriend’s Favorite Slot

Various sorts of players visit the Woodbine Casino in Canada. Marcelo happened to be one of them and he would visit frequently with his girlfriend. They would play a bunch of slot machines, but his girlfriend’s favorite was Wheel of Fortune.

Unfortunately, she had passed away and Marcelo was devastated. Now the spots this Toronto player had visited were echoes of happy memories from the time spent with her. He decided to visit Woodbine Casino in Canada again. And to relive the happy memories he decided on playing her favorite slot.

Wheel of Fortune is a progressive jackpot slot. It gives players the chance to win big if they land the right symbols. But landing these symbols is pretty tough. However, it proved to be manageable for Marcelo as he landed them. His effort paid off as he landed an amazing jackpot prize of $3.2 million.

He stated that he felt his girlfriend’s spirit with him as he was spinning the slot. She used to play the game and rather than wait for the wheels to stop spinning she would hit the button to stop the machine midway. This is what Marcelo did and claims that this was the reason why he landed the jackpot prize.

Whatever the reason, he is another jackpot winner at the casino. He stated that he was sad his girlfriend wasn’t beside him to enjoy the win with him. She would have been as surprised as him when he had landed the amazing prize.

Conclusion

Marcelo Loyola had an extremely exciting weekend as he landed a progressive jackpot prize of $3.2 million. He and his girlfriend loved visiting the casino and playing slots. Her favorite, Wheel of Fortune, had brought him a prize as he stopped the wheel mid-spin just like she had done. It was all in her memory.
