A stop at the slot machines is helping a Halifax woman with her parking problem.
For the past month, Suzanne Jordan has been gambling at Casino Nova Scotia in downtown Halifax so she can park for free.
Jordan needs to gamble $10 a day to have her parking validated. Sometimes, she even wins some of the money back.
"The way I'm looking at it is I have to spend this money anyway, but with this experiment, I might get a discount," she told CBC News.
Jordan lives off the peninsula, far from a bus route. After starting a job in downtown Halifax, she discovered the cheapest pay-by-day parking was $10.
