Toronto's McDonald's Worker Wins Over $1 Million in a Nickel Slot!
Have you ever dreamed of dropping a few dollars into a slot machine and watch your dreams come true in becoming an instant millionaire?
This is exactly what happened to Toronto's Casilda Pouk when she nailed the $1,039,320 Canadian dollar ($1.03 million) jackpot on the Mighty Millionaire nickel slot machine at the Fallsview Casino Resort in Niagara, Canada, last week!
Fate was on the side of this 51-year old woman since she originally planned to head to a different casino, the Casino Rama with her family. However, due to weather conditions, she had a change of heart. Pouk even missed the first bus to Fallsview Casino, which turned out to be a lucky turn of events for her and her dearest ones.
Armed with only $200, it amazingly only took three spins for Fouk to nail the huge jackpot, making her dreams come true. According to the Global News, Fouk's immigrated to Canada in 1991 from the Philippines to work as a nanny. As the youngest of 11 children, Fouk in the past has generously helped her family back in her native country even when times were tough. Now she will have no problems helping her family thanks to one life-changing spin.
Fouk's family is thrilled, including her sister, Maria Angelina Espanola, who excitingly turned to the local press to say that "Maybe God helped her to help more of our family when they need it."
Despite becoming an instant millionaire, Fouk plans to still return to work at the McDonald's restaurant she has made a living at during the past 15 years. This doesn't mean life won't change for Fouk and her immediate family. She claimed after winning the jackpot, “My husband can have that car he was dreaming of.”
Dreams can come true, and it seems it couldn't have happened to a nicer or more generous lady. Congrats to Casilda Pouk on her huge life changing jackpot win last week!
