A northern Saskatchewan man is now a lot richer after taking home a VLT jackpot on the weekend worth almost half a million dollars.


Perry Caisse of Ile-a-la-Crosse won the Smoke Signals Jackpot at the Northern Lights Casino in Prince Albert on Saturday.


Caisse was presented a cheque worth $480,841.13 in a ceremony this afternoon at the casino.


Caisse says he didn’t get too excited when the lights starting flashing, because he didn’t believe he had won. He says he still doesn’t believe it.


Smoke Signals is a progressive slot machine connected with all five SIGA casino sites across the province.
