By GT STAFF| Another lucky player has joined the millionaires club after hitting the progressive jackpot of Aristocrats Millioni$er penny slot at the Rampart Casino in Las Vegas.The 66-year-old retired Las Vegan had played $80 last week when she hit the $1.4 million jackpot. The woman, who said she frequently plays the Aristocrat slot, said she planned to use the award to pay bills, buy her sister a present and invest in a new home.
"Its incredible that Millioni$er hit on our floor, and we are especially excited one of our loyal locals won over $1 million," said casino slot director Donovan York. "Aristocrats Millioni$er has been on our floor for years, and we are thrilled that it could hit as a wide-area progressive at the Rampart."
Millioni$er became a statewide progressive in Nevada last year, and hit for more than $1.7 million in Las Vegas last February. The top jackpot will now re-start at $1 million. There are 56 casinos in Nevada that feature the Aristocrat game.
The Millioni$er progressive slot has a second-screen feature with four different jackpot levels that can be triggered randomly during game play. The four tiered progressives give Millioni$er a relatively high hit frequency.
Aristocrat Technologies, based in Australia, is the second largest slot manufacturer in the world, behind IGT.
