According to the Yonhap news, a 45-year-old Singaporean won a 884.8 million won (US$800,000 or SGD1.068 million) mega jackpot in South Korea last weekend.
The unnamed Singaporean became the seventh mega jackpot winner at one of South Korea’s largest foreigners-only casino, Paradise City in Incheon. Officials working at the casino report that the Singaporean played a variety of games before winning big.
Besides its branch in Incheon, Paradise City also runs casinos in Seoul, Busan and Jeju. All Paradise City casinos feature a jackpot ceiling of 1 billion won per win. Three months ago, this past March, one fortunate individual won a record 988 million won from Paradise City’s Seoul branch.
