Eleanor Bran was just happy with winning what she thought was a $10,000 prize. Then the Yellowknife resident realized that one small addition to her ticket had changed everything; Bran had gone ALL IN and won $108,063.60 on POKER LOTTO on September 10!
“I was stunned!” she said. “I thought I had only won $10,000. I didn’t realize I had won the ALL IN jackpot as well. I was so excited that I went ‘looney tunes.’”
ALL IN is an optional $1 add-on that gives players the chance to win more on top of the top five instant POKER LOTTO prizes. One of the hands on Bran’s ticket matched a Royal Flush, securing her a $10,000 instant prize. The addition of ALL IN meant that she won the current $98,063.60 jackpot as well.
As to her plans for that jackpot, Bran is keeping her cards close to her chest for now.
“I’ll pay off my bills for sure,” she said, “and sit on the rest!”
Bran purchased her winning ticket at the Village Reddi-Mart located at 16-416 Byrne Road in Yellowknife. Hers, like all POKER LOTTO tickets, was a quick pick.
