Slot machine in Calgary spills millions, sets jackpot record in Alberta
CALGARY — A slot machine in Calgary has paid off with the biggest jackpot of its kind ever won in Alberta.
A couple who played the Diamond Millions game have walked away with $2.5 million.
The huge windfall came at the city’s Deerfoot Inn and Casino.
The game starts at $1 million and grows in three-dollar increments until someone wins.
All of the Diamond Millions machines in the province are linked by a network.
The last jackpot was $1.28 million that was won in June 2012 at a resort and casino in Camrose, southwest of Edmonton.
