The past week has been filled with a wave of interesting news and events in the Canadian casino industry. Let us act as your filter to weed out the noise and present you with only the best information you need to be in the know.
Crazy Tooth Constructs a Winner
Crazy Tooth Studio is back with a new futuristic online slot game called Build the Bank, which features a construction robot with a mission to build a bank and help you to achieve amazing prizes. The 5x5 grid game includes 3125 ways to win and a maximum winning potential of 4000x your bet.
When you start the game, you will be greeted by a futuristic cityscape with flying cars, zipping by, as the frame of the bank to be built serves as a housing for the reels. Gold bars, hammers, and helmets act as high-value symbols, and the gleaming robot stands alongside the grid, eager to help you get some wealth.
Activate 3 Mega Pile spins by landing 3 scatters and watch the reels grow to 5x7 in height. During these bonus spins, the game dishes out cash prizes, multiplier symbols, passive symbols, and special awards symbols. You can also trigger Mega Pile spins with Respin Upgrade symbols. In this case, you will get unlimited spins until you hit 3 consecutive rounds where only passive symbols appear.
Stakelogic is Quick on the Draw
Stakelogic has had a busy year, filled with thrilling releases. The latest in its string of exciting titles is a Western-themed gunslinging experience called Outlaws Hunter. The 5x4 reel, 50 payline game boasts high volatility gameplay and amazing winning potential. The action on the reels takes place against in a dusty Western town with whiskey, hats, horseshoes, the sheriff, and revolvers showing up as high-value symbols.
Wild symbols expand to fill the entire reel wherever they land and trigger win multipliers worth up to 20x. Three scatter symbols are all it takes to activate the bonus round where a wheel spins to award you up to 20 free spins with a multiplier worth up to 500x.
Olga Bajela, the CCO at Stakelogic, said,
"Outlaws Hunter is absolutely our wildest Wild West-themed slot launch to date. It is highly volatile and delivers explosive gameplay thanks to Expanding Wilds, Multipliers, and those all-important Free Spins. This slot really is only for the brave. Hunting down the five wild outlaws is easier said than done, but, of course, the rewards for doing so are potentially huge. We look forward to seeing Outlaws Hunter ride into operator game lobbies and for players to return some law and order for big wins."
$70m Surprise for Calgary Player
The monstrous $70,00,000 Lotto Max jackpot is a life-changing prize that not many will claim. However, Mitchel Dyck from Calgary, an admitted casual lottery player, beat the odds to land the win of a lifetime.
Dyck’s Lotto Max ticket that he purchased for the October 21 Lotto Max draw became his ticket to a life beyond his imagination when he matched all seven winning numbers to land the huge $70 million jackpot that has gone unclaimed for 21 consecutive draws.
“I handed it to the cashier who scanned it; I thought we won $70,000. We tried to count the zeroes, but the numbers flew by quickly. I already had goosebumps,” he recalled.
“Then we started counting and realized it’s $70 million. I thought, ‘Is that even a thing?” the winner added.
Dyck admits that he and his family are still coming around to the reality of possessing such a large fortune, but that they have decided to play it smart when it comes to the money.
“We found a private banker who will help us manage this. For right now, it’s just going in the bank until we can make some more plans,” he said.
Big Prize for a Big Heart
Michel Kassas of Leamington is a social services worker who dedicates his days to helping others. Now it seems that his generous nature has been rewarded with a coveted million-dollar Maxmillions win.
Kassas earned his lucky windfall when he purchased his ticket for the October 7 Lotto Max draw.
“My favourite games are Lotto Max and Lotto 6/49. I play my own numbers that are comprised of significant family dates,” he explained.
The lucky winner was alerted to his prize by an email from OLG that informed him what he had won.
“I logged into my OLG account, and I couldn’t believe it. I told my mom that we won $1 million, and she was so happy, she cried. My heart feels so full. This win fills me with hope,” he recalled.
