A Canadian elementary school teacher won almost one million dollars just minutes after her class ended! Mia McLean, of Halifax, Nova Scotia, had just finished class and the children had left, but little did she know this day would change her life forever!
“I had just finished picking up after the kids,” says Mia. “and I was midway through grading assignments, when I took a coffee break. It was then that I won the money.
During her break, Mia spotted an advertisement on Facebook. It was for a new online casino, Yukon, that was proving a hit in the United States. “It said that everyone who registered got 80 free spins. All you needed to do was give an email. They didn’t want a deposit or anything. So I signed up there and then.”
”At first I didn’t win anything so I decided to try my luck and deposit $10.”
and bam just a few minutes later, Mia struck the Progressive Jackpot, winning an incredible $892,392.
Gambling industry expert Alan Silver shares his thoughts on this sensation, "What you often see in new online casinos is that the run a huge loss in the beginning because they have a lot of money off roads to come in the hope of new customers. That makes this the perfect time to score well with Yukon. Once a customer base is established winning becomes much harder therefore it is very important to capitalize on new casino games and capture all the winnings you can. "
ATV journalist Marieke Kessel tried it herself. She won $1290 after 7 minutes. "Unfortunately, it's not as much as Mia but I'm not complaining."
