Mega Excitement As First Million-dollar IGT MegaHits™ Jackpot Hits At Delaware Park

LAS VEGAS, Oct. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- A lucky winner in Delaware has more than a million reasons to celebrate as she wins the first million dollar IGT MegaHits™ jackpot. Elissa Y. won $1,453,960.86 on Wednesday, Oct. 24 on the Wild Sapphire MegaHits™ machine at Delaware Park in Stanton, Delaware.

IGT's MegaHits™ wide area progressive (WAP) jackpot game is a multi-state link available through a partnership with the Multi-State Lottery Association, IGT and the lotteries in Delaware, West Virginia and Rhode Island. This interstate progressive's starting jackpot resets to $100,000.

"It is a remarkable and exciting time for both the player and IGT as we award our first MegaHits™ jackpot and she became a new millionaire," Tim Shortall, IGT vice president  of Eastern Region Sales. "IGT has been creating millionaires since 1986, when we introduced our first wide area progressive, Megabucks™. Ever since then, players have loved the life-changing jackpots these types of games offer. Congratulations to our newest winner."

"We were thrilled that one of our Delaware Park Player Rewards customers won the grand prize jackpot," said Delaware Park President Bill Fasy. "MegaHits is an exciting game and popular with our customers. The grand prize jackpot is already ticking back up, and I'm sure that after this big win, even more people will want to try their luck at Delaware Park. This was a great testament to our belief that winning is always in play at Delaware Park."

MegaHits™ is a wide area progressive jackpot that includes smaller progressive awards that hit frequently. It is available as a penny or three-coin dollar game, which requires the maximum bet of $3 to be eligible to win the top prize. Game themes  on the link include IGT's popular Emerald Sevens™, Triple Ruby Riches™, Reel Gold™ and Wild Sapphires™ and feature a local, four-level progressive plus the WAP top award.
