Saskatchewan truck driver gets lucky at Dakota Dunes Casino
A truck driver from Porcupine Plain, Sask. is now a millionaire. The Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority (SIGA) announced Saturday that its “Smoke Signals Jackpot” has been won twice in three weeks at the Dakota Dunes Casino south of Saskatoon.
Don Farber arrived at the casino on Whitecap Dakota First Nation just 20 minutes before winning $1,048,973 by playing a progressive slot machine. He has been described by staff as a friendly and well-liked patron.
“Our employees are so excited that we have had another patron win the Smoke Signals Jackpot,” said casino general manager Gary Daniels.
“If Don was looking to start the New Year off on the right foot, I don’t think he could have picked a better way.”
Last month, a Saskatoon man won $1,166,462 at the same casino.
Smoke Signals links 52 slot machines at all six SIGA casinos in the province. As of Jan. 13, these jackpots have paid out a total of $12,245,321.
