She Lives In The Bus And Calls It Exclusive
(News24) - Amanda, 35, has always been a free spirit. She’s been moving from one place to another all her life and was never able to settle down, not to mention finding a stable job that would provide her with enough money to rent a decent apartment.
People were calling her a weirdo.
She didn’t mind though, as to her own admission - she was never a typical Canadian trying to live a perfect live from the movies. What about a life partner? Amanda’s been single for years. She likes her privacy and never liked sharing a bed with somebody else. Regardless of what people thought about her, she enjoyed that lifestyle and never complained about her living conditions.
Even though she was ‘different’, Amanda had dreams like anyone else. The biggest was having a house she would create herself, exactly the way she likes it. She wanted to create a mobile home that would enable her to move around but also have a roof above her head anywhere she goes. She didn’t want to change her lifestyle, just upgrade it a little.
Amanda fell in love with a 1966 GMC bus she spotted at one of the roadside car purchases. Even though it was in a pretty bad condition, she saw a lot of charm in it. It was definitely THE one. But how can a nomad like her afford buying a bus and renovating it?
Here is where the story gets interesting.
Well, the natural reflex is to assume people like Amanda live like that cause they don’t have any other choice. So here is the surprise - she chose that lifestyle and money was never an issue.
Amanda tried many jobs in her life and she would always find new opportunities to make some extra cash. One year ago, Amanda had her lucky day.
While she was on a lookout for food vouchers online, she came across coupons for an online casino. It caught her attention. Yukon Gold Casino just opened in Canada and was offering a bonus of 125 chances to spin for just $10. She had no idea what that means but she had $10 dollars on her account and decided to make a use out of it. Believe it or not, on her 25th spin she won a jackpot of $230,500!
Saving the ladybug earlier than morning truly brought her luck!
Thanks to the money she won with Yukon Gold, Amanda has her dream home now. If you though turning an old bus into a house was a bad idea, just look at this:
Despite the hardships, she didn’t give up. Overall, her labor of love took a little over $70k to complete. Amanda has been living in the bus since January, and she absolutely adores it.
We tested Yukon Gold for ourselves...
Our very own reporter Sarah Knight decided to test Yukon Gold to see if it was legitimate.
"When I heard about Amanda’s story, I thought it was too good to be true, so I investigated further. After a few days of research and investigation, I found out Yukon Gold is actually one of the popular online casinos in Europe, yet was only recently allowed by law to accept Canadian citizens.
There are rumors Yukon Gold is "loosening up" their games for new Canadian players. This means they are making it easier to win money for a limited time to help their brand gain popularity in Canada. Their website says: “125 chances to spin and win huge jackpots for just $10!”
I did notice Yukon Gold is extremely strict on only accepting users ages 18 and up, with no exceptions. When I signed up, I had to enter my credit card info as verification of my age. I was a little nervous, yet they assured me I would not be charged a single cent.
Turns out they were right. As soon as I passed verification, I was given access to all their games along with 125 chances to spin bonus to win the jackpot of $1,001,940.26. I checked my credit card statement the next day and indeed there were no hidden charges.
I used my 125 free spins for the next three days whenever I was bored. On my 73rd free spin, I actually won some money. I couldn't believe it! I won $1,650.00 from the "Immortal Romance" game! It wasn't life-changing money or anything but I was very pleased! Now I could pay off the rest of my credit card bills and use some money for a new pair of shoes.
I received the my winnings in my account almost instantly."
Here at News24, we followed up with Yukon Gold and they said they are not going to be able to offer this 125 free spins promotion for much longer, since too many people are winning from the free spins. Their press representative confirmed this free spins promotion will end midnight on Monday, July 09, 2018
