SIGA Celebrates first bonus spin blackjack jackpot at Gold Horse Casino
February 5, 2020 – Lloydminster, SK – A farmer from Bodo, Alberta has won $92,718.85 in SIGA’s first ever Bonus Spin Blackjack jackpot during a visit to Gold Horse Casino. Dennis Scheck won the jackpot on February 1, 2020.
‘This is the first Bonus Spin Blackjack ever won at a SIGA casino’ says Zane Hansen, SIGA President and CEO. ‘Congratulations to Dennis!’
Mr. Scheck was playing the Bonus Spin Blackjack for a while and then took a break but decided to return. Right after he came back, he was dealt the blackjack hand that allowed him to spin the wheel. He couldn’t believe he had won saying, ‘I think this is the best thing that [has] ever happened to me in my life.’
Roger Anderson, Gold Horse General Manager says, ‘Not only is this the first Bonus Spin jackpot paid out by SIGA, it’s also the largest live games jackpot paid out at Gold Horse Casino to date. We are so excited for Dennis and to celebrate another first for Gold Horse Casino.’
Bonus Spin Blackjack is a new table game available at all SIGA Casinos. Bonus Spin is a Blackjack bonus that allows players an opportunity to win an incremental progressive jackpot of various cash prizes. Players bet $5 on a bonus spin and have two ways to win: 1) if they have an ace in their first two cards, they are paid even money; or 2) if they are dealt a blackjack, they will press a button that spins a virtual wheel in order to win money, including a top-prize progressive. SIGA is the first gaming operator in Canada that offers this type of bonus bet. The Bonus Spin Blackjack jackpot at Gold Horse Casino has now been reset to over $15,000 and can be won at any time.
