Jules Parent is our latest Powerbucks $1Million+ jackpot winner!


Every jackpot winner has a story, and this one is particularly interesting.

Jules Parent won $1,222,069 by playing Canada’s Powerbucks™ progressive jackpot  game, Crown of Egypt, on the site on July 24th. Originally he thought he “only” won $220,000 but when he tried to claim his prize, he was informed of the amount. Imagine his surprise! Even more surprising, Mr. Parent also won the Lotto 6-49 jackpot (another prize of over a million dollars) less than ten years ago.

When asked what he was going to do with his prize money, his only short term plans were to demolish his house and rebuild it. “It’s going to be a relatively modest house, not a castle but something with a more modern style,” Jules described

Be sure to play Powerbucks $1Million+ jackpot slots so that the next time, maybe your story can get published!  We’re making Millionaires across Canada.
