A woman from Oshawa calls is a “dream come true” after winning $250,000 while playing slots on the online casino, Starlight.

According to Margaret Prince, she had signed up to play on Starlight casino just to pass the time.

“We were in the middle of the pandemic and I so was bored at home. I used to go the casino almost every Friday with my girlfriends and I was missing it. My daughter told me about an online casino and I thought, what the heck, I might as well try it out.”

Margaret, a married mother of two, had no idea that she could ever win that big on an online casino.

“I would play occasionally just for fun. I only ever played the slots though I did see there were card games available too. One evening after work, I didn’t to play one of the $0.05 slots and after a few minutes I saw $250,000 on my screen.”
