SEOUL, June 9 (Korea Bizwire) – A Singaporean national won a mega jackpot of 884.8 million won (about US$800,000) at Paradise City, a foreigners-only casino in Incheon’s Yeongjongdo district, casino officials said Saturday.
The winner, identified only as a 45-year-old Singaporean, made the fortune by playing various casino games early Friday evening, the officials said.
Incheon’s Paradise City with a space of 8,726.8 square meters is one of the nation’s largest foreigners-only casinos. Paradise has three more casinos, located in Seoul, Busan and Jeju, and the four casinos together have a jackpot ceiling of 1 billion won per win.
The Singaporean has become the seventh mega jackpot winner at Paradise casinos, the officials noted. In March, a jackpot winner claimed a record 988 million won at Paradise’s casino at a Seoul hotel.
