The Citizen (Gauteng)
Carnival of big payouts
Six instant millionaires were created at the slot machines of Carnival City in April, winning R1 million to R2.5 million.
These winnings were included in the total of R16.7 million paid out to gamblers at the Brakpan casino.
One MVG tables player won a progressive payout of R25 000 with a royal flush.
Carnival City’s Magic Poker Jackpot currently stands at R161 357.
Karin Mare, from Meyerton, was the lucky winner of an Isuzu Double Cab 4x4 worth R600 000 in the Carnival of Dreams draw on the last Sunday of the month.
“I’ve been going to Carnival City since the day they opened so it was fantastic to win something big. I really enjoy the casino, the staff are friendly and I like the machines,” she said.
She confessed she had not driven the car yet, saying: “I’m pimping it with a canopy and a nudge bar, everything it needs to protect it. I like it, though, it’s huge. People must watch out – I am coming.” –
