The term “life-changing” took on a new meaning when Irma B. won over $52,000 at Silver Oak online casino just before the new year after wagering just $1 on the popular Aladdin’s Dream video slot machine.
Irma, her husband and children have been keen to move from their small, economically depressed town for quite some time now, but did not have the means to do so. The stunned casino player said that the money would now enable them to move to the city of Fairbanks and start anew.
“With the economy being as tough as it is, all we hear nowadays are gloom-and-doom stories,” said the customer support manager at Silver Oak, Michael Daniels. “It's always nice when we can share in the joy of a big jackpot with a customer. After all, all it takes is one click of the mouse to completely change someone's life for the better. Every situation we get to experience situations of that like Irma B. and every time it puts a smile on my face.”
