Lamborghini winners take Cash instead of Cars
Two punters won a Lamborghini each at the Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) casino last week.
The duo, who were playing the slot machine game Mystery Jackpot, were among those who have won over $70m in the first three months since the casino opened, RWS said.
Each car is worth $850,000 and does not come with COE, but both winners opted for $650,000 in cash instead.
Singaporean Rina Sim, 51, had gone to the casino with her parents, aged 86 and 75, on May 7.
While her parents played at the VIP tables on the second floor, she tried her luck at the slot machines in the smoking area, making $5 bets.
The electrical company manager was down to her last $50 when she hit the jackpot.
Suddenly, the buttons on the machine stopped working. She could not continue playing or retrieve her ticket.
The message "Congratulations, you have won the Lamborghini!" flashed on the machine.
She said: "I didn't want to be too happy at first in case it was a mistake. I thought maybe the machine was spoilt."
