Bally’s hot new QuarterMillion$ wide-area progressive hit for $261,317.91 last week at the Stardust Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. This marks the 15th time the super-progressive jackpot has hit in the wide-area progressive’s history and the first time the jackpot was won at this particular casino.

Mary Mirabel, a retiree from Colorado, won the exciting progressive on a QuarterMillion$ "In The Money" slot machine at the well-known Strip resort. She only invested about $20 and played approximately 30 minutes before lining up the winning combination for the super progressive jackpot. She plans on using some of her winnings to purchase a new recreational vehicle for her husband and to send her daughters to summer school.

Six days earlier, another lucky winner walked away with the top QuarterMillion$ jackpot of $351,505.53 on a Pam Anderson Lucky Wheel slot a few blocks away at The Mirage. It was the first super progressive jackpot for the reel-spinning progressive slot featuring the likeness of the world famous Playboy model and celebrity.

Since their inception, QuarterMillion$ progressive slots have now paid out a total of $4,628,877 in jackpots to lucky players from coast to coast. In Nevada, the QuarterMillion$ link has paid out $2,323,873 to winners statewide.

Resetting at $250,000, the new QuarterMillion$ progressive link offers one of the highest minimum progressive jackpots ever for a three-quarter, instant-pay slot. The name "QuarterMillion$" also refers to the game’s 25-cent wager and the chance to win the lucrative super progressive prize for just 75 cents a spin.
