What’s hotter than Pamela Anderson?

Talk about hot, Pamela Anderson, the former Bay Watch babe, has been considered one of the more incendiary stars on TV. And now her own slot machine is scorching the fingers of lucky players.

Last week, Bally Gaming announced last week that its QuarterMillion$ wide-area progressive slot link hit twice in the same day for a combined $674,819.62 on at the Taj Mahal and Aladdin casinos in Atlantic City and Las Vegas, respectively.

France Perkoski of Oliphant, Pennsylvania, wanted to play the new Pamela Anderson Lucky Wheel slots ever since they debuted at the opulent Taj Mahal casino. When she finally got her chance, she wasn’t disappointed as the sexy Pamela Anderson-inspired reel-spinning slot made her $374,093.70 richer her very first time playing it.

Meanwhile, at another Middle Eastern-themed casino nearly 3,000 miles away, Thomas Kosik of Niles, Illinois, was on his way to get something to eat at the Aladdin on the Las Vegas Strip when he was attracted to the "big game on the aisle." Kosik decided to wager $20 on the QuarterMillion$ In The Money slot machine. After just a few pulls, he lined up the winning symbols and hit the $300,725.93 progressive jackpot.

This marks the 32nd and 33rd times a QuarterMillion$ jackpot has been won nationally. QuarterMillion$ has now paid out a total of $10,180,439.47 in jackpots to lucky winners.

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.

The national deployment of slot titles on the QuarterMillion$ link includes Lucky Wheel, Tower of Power, In The Money and QuarterMillion$ Frenzy. QuarterMillion$ slots are available in Nevada, New Jersey, Louisiana and Mississippi, and selected Native American casinos stretching from New York and Connecticut to California.
