First car winner at Cascades Casino

Keremeos man wins 2017 Mustang GT Convertible

Father’s Day is a special day, but for a Keremeos man, it was also memorable one.

In the early hours of June 18, Bill Oliver was on the Race to Win slot machine and hit the top jackpot, awarding him the blue 2017 Mustang GT Convertible on display in the entrance to the casino.

“Somebody pinch me. I still can’t believe I won,” said Oliver in a press release from Cascades Casino of his reaction when he was handed the keys to his new car.

Located at the South Okanagan Events Centre, Cascades Casino Penticton opened its doors to the public April 5.

Race To Win is a Mystery Bonus slot game offered in some B.C. casinos. This group of slot machines are all connected and offer a randomly won bonus prize before the meter reaches a randomly determined value. The bonus prize can be awarded at any time, on any spin — winning or non-winning.

The next vehicle available to be won before 125,000 kilometres is reached on the Race to Win meter is a 2017 silver Cadillac XT5 luxury crossover.
