Bally Gaming and Systems reported last week that its QuarterMillion$ wide-area progressive slot link has hit for a record third time in just four days.

The newest QuarterMillion$ winner is Paul Preston Pratt of Sarasota, Fla., who hit a $278,353.35 jackpot on a QuarterMillion$ In The Money slot machine at the Boomtown Biloxi Casino on Tuesday, April 26. This marked the 22nd time the super progressive jackpot hit in the wide-area progressive link’s history.

This latest cavalcade of super progressive cash payouts on QuarterMillion$ slots began Friday, April 22 at Caesars Atlantic City when an anonymous winner hit the link’s largest jackpot ever — a whopping $419,141.63 on a QuarterMillion$ Bonus Frenz slot machine.

Then, on Monday, April 25, William Mitten of Elmont, N.Y., won $322,552.76 on a QuarterMillion$ In The Mone slot machine at the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Conn.

This most recent flurry of QuarterMillion$ jackpot winners has pushed the overall QuarterMillion$ super progressive jackpots to a total of $6,902,675.28 paid to lucky players from coast to coast.

Resetting at an impressive $250,000, the exciting new QuarterMillion$ 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.

The initial national deployment of slot titles on the QuarterMillion$ link includes Lucky Wheel, Tower of Power, In The Money and QuarterMillion$ Frenzy. A number of new reel-spinning, video and hybrid QuarterMillion$ games in a variety of denominations are currently in development.
