Park Place Entertainment recently penned a deal with Alliance Gaming to develop a new wide-area progressive slot machine, Park Place Millions.

Casino officials said the new slot will award a "life changing" jackpot to its players.

The machine, which is scheduled for debut at the end of this year, will be installed in Park Place casinos in Nevada, New Jersey and Mississippi.

While game specifications may vary with jurisdiction, initial plans call for machines in 25¡, 50¡ and $1 denominations.

The progressive jackpot will start at $1 million, and it will be paid instantly, not in annual payments.

"By introducing Park Place Millions in all three of our jurisdictions, we believe we are instantly creating an exciting new slot brand that will rival anything in the marketplace," said Dave Âí­Lyons, Park Place Entertainment’s senior slot executive.
