Auntie won a Lamborghini!

Postby DM101 » Wed May 19, 2010 9:48 pm

Singaporean Rina Sim, 51, visited the Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) casino with her elderly parents earlier this month.

While they played at the second floor VIP tables, she tried her luck at the slot machines making S$5 bets. She was down to her last S$50 when the buttons on the machine stopped working.

She could not play or retrieve her ticket when suddenly, a message flashed on the machine, “Congratulations, you have won the Lamborghini!”

According to The New Paper, Ms Sim was one of two punters who won a Lamborghini each at the RWS casino last week. The two were playing the Mystery Jackpot and were among those who have won over S$70 million over the first three months of the casino’s opening (I wonder how many lost.)

Each luxury car is worth S$850,000 and does not include COE, but the two lucky winners opted for S$650,000 cash instead.

“I really didn’t expect to be so lucky,” said Ms Sim, who opted for the cash because she said a sports car is too difficult to maintain.

Single, and living alone in a condo, she added that she will use the money to pay off housing loans, give some to her parents as well as make donations to old folks’ homes.

The self-professed “aunty” is an RWS regular and visits the casino twice a week, also frequenting cruise ships and overseas casinos. But she insists that she will not increase her bets or stop working because of the windfall.

“The money is not life-changing. If you spend a bit here and a bit there, it will be gone quickly. You still have to work and be thrifty,” she advises.

After all, when it comes to gambling, everyone knows the old adage — for every winner, there’s a thousand losers.
