WMS Slot Machine Pays Out Record Jackpot Of $7.2 Million At Palace Casino Resort In Biloxi, Mississippi

WMS Gaming Inc., a subsidiary of WMS Industries (NYSE: WMS), announced today that a 73-year old Michigan resident won a $7.2 million jackpot on a WMS THE LORD OF THE RINGS™ progressive penny slot machine at the Palace Casino in Biloxi, Miss., on Friday evening, February 15. The jackpot exceeds the previous largest win on a WMS Wide-Area Progressive slot machine, which occurred in Atlantic City, when a player won $4.9 million on the Reel Adventure® link in January 2011.

“We pay out jackpots every day here at Palace Casino Resort, and we are thrilled to be the home of the $7.2 million winning jackpot on WMS Gaming’s THE LORD OF THE RINGS state-wide progressive penny slot machine,” said General Manager, Keith Crosby.

Dean Ehrlich, Vice President of Gaming Operations for WMS, said, “The $7.2 million jackpot at the Palace Casino is a life-changing event for this player and his family, and it’s wonderful to see our largest jackpot ever paid by WMS hit with this incredible win! We could not be more excited for this player.”

WMS has a broad portfolio of Wide-Area Progressive machines linked to many multi-property progressive meters, and featuring premium brands such as MONOPOLY™, THE WIZARD OF OZ™, and SPIDER-MAN™.

The slot machine is one of the exciting WMS games enhanced by Player’s Life® Web Services that lets casinos add an online dimension to the games on their floor, allowing players to play for fun online and secure bonuses for in-casino play.

The jackpot-winning player wished to remain anonymous.
