A Lloydminster woman is $1,855,305.52 richer after winning SIGA’s Smoke Signals jackpot. Brenda Lloyd became the first to win the top tier progressive jackpot at Gold Horse Casino on Aug. 6.
When asked how excited she was about the big win, Lloyd says, “I was in total aww! I didn’t even realize that I had won anything.”
She plans to spend some of her winnings on a nice vacation with her family.
“On behalf of SIGA’s Board of Directors, management and staff, I would like to congratulate Brenda on becoming the newest member of SIGA’s millionaire club,” says SIGA President and CEO Zane Hansen.
For General Manager Roger Anderson, this is an exciting first for Gold Horse Casino. “It’s a very exciting time for our employees and the surrounding community – the first win exceeding a million dollars at SIGA’s newest casino. Congratulations to Brenda on becoming Gold Horse’s first Smoke Signals millionaire!”
To date, SIGA’s Smoke Signals progressive has paid out $37,486,111.30, with $16,564,359.38 of that amount from the top tier. Smoke Signals has been reset to one million dollars and can be won at any time.
