A 56-year old woman won one of the largest casino jackpots in KwaZulu-Natal when she walked off with R1.8-million from Sibaya Casino on Saturday. Nola Lawrence of Roodepoort scooped the big prize on the Sunstriker slot machine in Sibaya’s smoking casino.
She was playing at 11h30 in the morning when the big bells went off, paying a whopping R1 825-million.
“I couldn’t believe my eyes. It was just an amazing moment,” she said.
Sibaya general manager, Melville Vogel said he was extremely pleased with her win.
“It is always wonderful when a big jackpot goes off. This one was really big and will literally be able to change Mrs Lawrence’s life. We trust that she will use her winnings wisely.”
Vogel said this marked the second large slots win in the past three weeks at Sibaya.
