US – Bally’s Millionaire Sevens WAP lands at Eagle Mountain

By - 11 April 2015

Scientific Games has announced that its Bally Millionaire Sevens wide-area progressive slot link hit for more than $1.1m at Eagle Mountain Casino in Porterville, California, on March 10.

The lucky winner, a waitress name Harriet Mellinger from Shafter, Calif., hit the life-changing jackpot while playing the one-cent denomination 1,000,000 Degrees Triple Blazing 7s Wild Jackpot game. She said she was drawn to the game when she walked into the casino. The jackpot paid a total of $1,168,555.17.
Matthew Mingrone, General Manager for Eagle Mountain Casino, said: “We’re so happy that Scientific Games is helping us maintain our position as one of the most generous casinos in California and the slot player’s best bet for big time slot wins.”

The exciting Bally Millionaire Sevens wide-area progressive features an initial million-dollar top award that increases the more the linked games are played. The mammoth Millionaire Sevens jackpot can be hit by players at any one of many participating casinos in California, Florida, Mississippi, Nevada, and New Jersey.

Dean Ehrlich, Senior Vice President of Global Gaming Operations, said: “We are thrilled to share in this exciting moment with Ms. Mellinger and Eagle Mountain Casino. We congratulate her for this outstanding jackpot.”

Scientific also recently heated up the Lunar New Year when its Bally interstate wide-area progressive slot link hit for the first time February 20, awarding the lucky player a life-changing $3.3 million jackpot.

The winner, a Massachusetts resident who wishes to remain anonymous, was playing the one-cent denomination Hot Shot Progressive video slot for about an hour when it hit at ARIA Resort & Casino on the Las Vegas Strip. The slot machine paid a total of $3,331,684.47.

This is the third-largest jackpot in the 83-year history of the Bally brand. Bally’s largest jackpot; $3,683,932.96, hit in 2009 at the Casino Royale in Las Vegas.

This jackpot win comes after Bally connected its Cash Connection link across Nevada and New Jersey on Aug. 20, 2014, creating the potential for larger awards that offer more excitement for players and drive play for operators. The combined link started with an accumulated top jackpot of $2,206,417.70 and continued to grow until it hit February 20, exactly six months later.

The launch of the multi-state link came after gaming regulators in Nevada and New Jersey passed regulations allowing slot jackpots to be linked across state lines.

Dean Ehrlich, Senior Vice President of Global Gaming Operations, said: “We are beyond excited for the winner of this extraordinary jackpot! Congratulations to the winner, and to share this event with ARIA is truly a pleasure.”

Hot Shot Progressive is an awe-inspiring double-wheel configuration of the popular brand featured on a 42-inch vertical display sitting atop a 22-inch high-definition screen. The game features popular play mechanics, touch-activated interaction, progressives, and free games.

This is the second Bally jackpot to hit in February. A $1.5m jackpot hit on the Bally 1,000,000 Degrees slot link at Ho-Chunk Gaming Madison in Wisconsin on February 11.
