A big VLT win at Kipling hotel

A visit to the Kipling Motor Inn proved to be a very fruitful decision for a Manitoba resident.

The Western Canada Lottery Corporation (WCLC) recently announced a Vault Breaker jackpot prize awarded by the Saskatchewan VLT program. Bob Heintz of Newton, Man., was awarded $1,075,213.58 after winning the grand jackpot on Vault Breaker at Kipling Motor Inn.

“I saw the Vault Breaker come up, and I thought it was $1,000,” he remembered. “A woman behind me said I had won a million dollars, but I said, ‘No, I won $1,000.”

“I stayed pretty calm when it was verified,” he added. “It hasn’t really kicked in yet.”

Heintz said he plans to put his windfall toward his retirement, as well as helping out his children and grandchildren.

Vault Breaker is a wide-area progressive that links 4,200 VLT machines across the province.

There are three mystery jackpot tiers: the province-wide grand jackpot has a minimum value of $500,000 and pays out before it hits $1.5 million, the regional major jackpot has a minimum value of $5,000 and pays out before it hits $25,000, and the local site jackpot minimum is $100 and pays out before hitting $500. Any of the three jackpot tiers can be awarded when a patron plays Vault Breaker.

The province-wide jackpot has awarded $11,494,797.39 to 13 winners since June 2017. Vault Breaker’s province-wide grand jackpot has now been reset to $500,000.
