"Yukon Gold is famous for having 100’s of winners every day."
This is a casino motto. What does it mean?

X has hundreds of winners.

A person who wins something is a winner.

so
every day, hundreds of people win [the jackpot]

It must be about winning some particular jackpots, not about people winning and losing over time as they play games at the casino.


ie, it is not rare for someone to win the jackpot. Every day hundreds of people win the jackpot.
If you come here, you could be one of those winners! Drool
But of course the casino is there to make a profit, so although hundreds of people may win, they and thousands of others will lose more, overall. Whistle

It is a sales trick to make people thing they can be a big winner at the casino, while the truth is that the winnings are going to be very small usually.

It may be true there are "hundreds of winners every day", but they will be small amounts, and often people spend more than they win.

The famous saying is that "the House always wins", meaning the casino is the real winner. They take in far more than they pay out.


We should look to the past to learn from it, not destroy our future because of it — FounDit
