Traveler concealing $1.2 million in cash detained!


By: Richard Williams .


Calgary - Security arrested a 23-year-old man yesterday right before departing.

Airport Security stopped a 23-year-old man from boarding his West Jet flight to Cancun. The gentleman's unusual physique drew the suspicions of the Airport Officials who then proceeded to search the him and discovered he was concealed in cash from head to toe.

Initially, the suspect, Philip Jacobs, was suspected of money laundering and smuggling but it soon turned out that he was completely innocent. At first the young man did not want to reveal where and how he got this amount of cash from but when the officers pressed him on it and even threatened him with jail time he had to cave in.

The young man explained that he had never travelled on an airplane before and was not aware of any rules related to the amount of cash you can carry on you.

"It was my mistake was not knowing that it is forbidden to take this large amount of cash with me. I had never boarded a plane before and after all the money is mine!"

The source of the cash was entirely legal and when you get to know how he obtained the money you will be kicking yourself!

The suspect, Philip, had won the Jackpot in one of Canadas largest online casino a few weeks ago. His intentions were to use the money to settle in Costa Rica and enjoy his well-deserved retirement.

Despite the missed flight and a small fine over not registering the cash for export, Philip is now super happy. He got all his money back and is now well on his way to emigrating...the legal way.

When asked how he managed to win the Jackpot he replied:

“I had never played in the Casino before. I received a voucher on Facebook that gave me 150 spins for only $10 so I gave it a try. The rest is history!”

The improbable win happened on the 32nd spin - He won the Mondial Jackpot worth $1.2 million!

The craziest thing is that Philip is not alone. Every day hundreds of new players cash out from online casinos!

Please help us share this story with friends who you think need a little reminder that everything is possible!

UPDATE We got you some vouchers!

Since the publication of this article, we have received a dozen emails from our readers to thank us for mentioning the promotion of Mondial Casinos 150 Spins for only $10. It wasn't our intention but it looks like we gained quite a few new rich readers through this and emails come up every day with stories of new winners.

After a new search for the jackpot, we decided to check out the Grand Mondial Casino site for ourselves. We found that Philip was only one of the 1,400 players across Canada who had won Jackpots with the vouchers in 2017. In fact, Mondial Casino has already paid over $ 4,500,000 In total earnings and will soon stop promoting - mainly because of the publicity they have gained through this story.

Our reporter, Thomas, even tried his luck at the jackpot, but only pocketed a meagre $1500 on a $25 bet - "Unfortunately, not everyone can win as much as our lucky man Philip, I suppose!"

Only Two Vouchers Available as on

We managed to acquire a limited number of vouchers from the Mondial Casino for our readers! Scan the QR code above or click the button below, then carefully fill out your information on the next pages, deposit $10 and you will see 150 spins displayed directly in your dashboard.

Hurry, because the offer is limited!

You may be as lucky as Philip and with only $10 you could win 1 million! Which would make you a return on investment of 100,000%! It would almost be foolish not to give it a try!
