Lucky Winner Hits $1.7 Million Instant Win Jackpot On The WMS THE LORD OF THE RINGS™ Land Of Mordor™ Slot Machine

PARKER, Ariz., April 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --  WMS Gaming Inc., a Scientific Games company, announced today that a casino patron at Blue Water Casino in Parker, Ariz., won an instant win jackpot of more than $1.7 million on THE LORD OF THE RINGS™ Land of Mordor™ wide-area progressive game. The winner, 26-year old Ms. Gagnier, hit the jackpot after having played about $20 on the popular three-reel mechanical slot game.  

Ms. Gagnier had chosen to play THE LORD OF THE RINGS Land of Mordor game because she is a fan of the film franchise and was attracted to the game's graphics.  Just prior to the winning spin, Ms. Gagnier had a feeling that she was going to be "lucky."  Startled at the win, Ms. Gagnier intends to use the life-changing jackpot proceeds on her current academic activities, as well as sharing her prize with her family.

Dean Ehrlich, WMS SVP of Global Gaming Operations, said, "The $1.7 million jackpot at the Blue Water Casino is our largest jackpot to date on any of our Arizona wide area progressive links. Congratulations to Ms. Gagnier on this exciting win!"

THE LORD OF THE RINGS Land of Mordor game is the first three-reel slot experience based on the iconic film franchise, and it brings Middle-earth to life through two unique base game themes, an interactive top box and six special character features based on the award-winning motion picture trilogy. Three scattered RING symbols in the game trigger the top box bonus selection, which in turn triggers one of the six unique bonuses for the chance to win a wide-area progressive.

This is the seventh time that a wide area progressive jackpot has been awarded on one of WMS' THE LORD OF THE RINGS three-reel mechanical slot machines since their introduction in 2012. THE LORD OF THE RINGS Land of Mordor game was developed under license with Warner Bros. Consumer Products.
