Nov 21, 2005 2:17 AM

Bally Gaming announced last week that its QuarterMillion$ wide-area progressive slot link hit on Tuesday at The Palms Resort Hotel & Casino.

The lucky winner, Maritza M. Dillon of San Antonio, Texas, took home the $363,577.67 super-progressive jackpot on a QuarterMillion$ "In The Money" slot machine at the trendy off-Strip casino.

She had been in Las Vegas since Nov. 1 and this was the fifth time she had played a QuarterMillion$ slot during her stay. Dillon said she invested about $40 and had been playing the machine for about an hour when it hit. She plans on opening her own limousine business with the winnings.

The award marks the 42nd QuarterMillion$ jackpot since the progressive slot link’s inception, pushing the overall amount paid out nationally to $12,734,728.89.

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 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 QuarterMillion$ games in a variety of denominations and styles are currently in development.

QuarterMillion$ slots are available for play at casinos in Nevada, New Jersey, Louisiana and Mississippi, and selected Native American casinos.
