FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Local chef Kyung Lee’s decision to play a slot game during his break on March 25th resulted in him being $766,705.57 richer.

“Usually, on Fridays during my break, I try to play a little bit,” said Lee. “It was only me at the restaurant at the time as my wife was out buying groceries for the dinner rush.”

Lee said the win didn’t feel real at first, and he ended up pacing around his kitchen.

“I didn’t realize it because the game just stopped and said I had won. I couldn’t believe that it happened to me.”

When his wife returned, Lee delivered the good news.

“I told her that somebody won a big prize on,” said Lee. “And after she asked, I told her that it was me!”

Lee says there were some happy tears with him and his wife, calling his win a dream come true.

“I’m happy because now this means I won’t have to worry about my retirement.”
