A lottery player walking with her puppy won big slots, changing her life forever.
Irene Sommerfeldt of Richmond, BC was playing the MegaJackpots® Wolf Run slot game on BCLC’s PlayNow.com when they won the jackpot on October 7th. A massive $728,890.49!
When she won, she had her dachshund, Wolfgang, right by her side as her mascot. Her dog was also the reason she chose the Wolf Run slot game in the first place.
She played to try and relax and unwind, but instead she got a big shock.
“At first I wasn’t sure if it was real,” Sommerfeldt said in a release. “Then I got a call and realized it was!”
Then she told her partner and her sister who were equally in disbelief and shed a few happy tears at the news.
“It’s exciting,” Sommerfeldt said of the win. “It provides peace of mind.”
Now she is looking forward to possibly retiring early and moving closer to family. But in the meantime, she’s also thinking about taking a trip to California “to enjoy the west coast and soothing sea air, because she just wants to relax.
