There was a report at Scientific Games Corporation website today that two jackpots were won on Bally wide-area progressive (“WAP”) links over a two-day period at two Wind Creek Hospitality casinos in Alabama.
The first jackpot of $1,253,777.08 was hit on the Bally 1,000,000 Degrees Class 2 WAP link in the early morning hours of April 26, 2015 on the Triple Blazing 7s Wild Jackpot slot at Wind Creek Casino & Hotel Atmore. Nineteen hours later, the second jackpot of $536,280.34 was awarded on the Bally Cash Connection link on the Fireball II After Burn game at Wind Creek Casino & Hotel Wetumpka. With this kind of huge money award, there was a great celebration at the Wind Creek Casino, but the winners of both jackpots were believed to decide to remain anonymous.
Ron Nesbitt, Vice President of Games at Wind Creek Hospitality, commented, “Though we’ve awarded countless large jackpots to our players over the years, we’ve never had our players win two large jackpot awards within a 24-hour period. Scientific Games’ products are helping us achieve our goal of being a leading entertainment destination in Alabama, while clearly providing players a chance to win life-changing jackpot awards.”
1,000,000 Degrees Triple Blazing 7s Wild Jackpot features a million-dollar progressive jackpot opportunity that players trigger when nine “1,000,000 Degrees” symbols appear with max bet. The game features a top progressive jackpot award that resets at a base amount of $999,999.99 and increments with game play.
Fireball II After Burn takes the player-favorite Fireball and adds even more fuel to the fire. This title brings the heat with three bonus wheel features, Free Games and the popular Game-in-Game play mechanic. Add the power of an enormous wide-area progressive and Fireball II After Burn ignites player excitement just like the original.
Dean Erhlich, Senior Vice President of Global Gaming Operations for Scientific Games, added, “We are thrilled that two large jackpot awards were won on our progressive links at the same operator’s casinos in such a short amount of time. It’s very exciting to share in such an extraordinary event with two very lucky players at Wind Creek.”
