|A Mississauga woman living in a cramped two-bedroom apartment with her husband and four children became an instant millionaire playing the slot machine at Casino Niagra over the weekend. Maryam Talini, 37, was down $900 from playing blackjack before winning $1,309301.20. Her children will benefit from the luck. “I want to take them to Disneyland because they have never been there before,” Ms.Talini said. |
After an unsuccessful night at the blackjack table, Mrs. Talini went to a bank machine to take out another $100. She put in $20 in a slot machine and three spins later she was a winner. It was the first time Maryam had played the machine. Ms. Talini said she will decide in the near future if she will keep her job as a driving instructor. She becomes the second person this month to win a million dollars at the casino. Two weeks ago, Pamela Fowler, 37, of Grimsby won Ontario’s biggest slot jackpot ever - $1,329,994.25.
