Millioni$er hits at Suncoast

Las Vegas local Jeannette Vaccaro dreamed about winning a large sum of money playing slot machines three weeks before she took home $1 million dollars last Tuesday afternoon after winning the grand jackpot on Aristocrat’s Millioni$er, a patented four-level mystery progressive penny slot game with a static top jackpot of $1 million in Nevada.

"I think I screamed when the fellow next to me said that I had just won a million dollars," Vaccaro said. "Three weeks ago I had dreamed about winning a jackpot”¦balloons went up, confetti was coming out of the machine”¦the dream was very real."

The retired singer and actor, whose dream came true yesterday, was playing the Millioni$er games for the first time when she won the top jackpot. She plans to enjoy her winnings in retirement with husband Michael.

"I really enjoyed the machine," Vaccaro said. "I saw a lot of people playing it, and when a seat became vacant I sat down. I liked the symbols and hit the Mini Jackpot a few times before I hit the Grand Jackpot."

"One of the most exciting aspects of Millioni$er is that the top prize is triggered by each game individually, so the $1 million jackpot can be won anytime, on any Millioni$er-themed game," said Sean Evans, general manager of gaming at Aristocrat Technologies, Inc.

Like Aristocrat’s other Hyperlink products — Cash Express and Jackpot Carnival — the breakthrough Millioni$er features a patented second screen feature with four different jackpot levels that can be triggered randomly during gameplay.

Millioni$er offers a static top jackpot of $1 million in Nevada and $500,000 in GLI jurisdictions due to GLI jurisdictional requirements. The Millioni$er Hyperlink feature is available on four Aristocrat MKVI base video slot games — Flame of Olympus, Geisha, Spring Carnival, and Wild Africa.

Las Vegas-based Aristocrat Technologies designs and markets casino management systems, progressive systems, and progressive jackpot meters. Aristocrat Technologies, Inc. is a subsidiary of global gaming company Aristocrat Leisure Limited, which is listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX: ALL).
