SINGAPORE: A 45-year-old Singaporean won a mega jackpot worth 884.8 million won (US$800,000) in South Korea, Yonhap news reported on Saturday (Jun 9), citing casino officials.
The 45-year-old Singaporean, who was not named, made the fortune at Paradise City, a foreigners-only casino located in Incheon’s Yeongjongdo district.
The winner played various casino games from Friday evening before becoming Paradise City’s seventh mega jackpot winner.
