Wilmington Woman Hits It 'Mega'-Big with $1.5 Million Delaware Park Jackpot
A Wilmington woman's $3 bet on a MegaHits™ slot machine at Delaware Park netted her a $1.5 million grand prize jackpot yesterday.
It was the first time a player in Delaware has won the three-state progressive jackpot.
“We were thrilled that one of our Delaware Park Player Rewards customers won the grand prize jackpot,” said Chief Operating Officer 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.”
International Game Technology's MegaHits wide area progressive (WAP) jackpot is part of the Multi-State Lottery Association, which includes Delaware, Rhode Island and West Virginia. This interstate progressive's starting jackpot resets to $100,000.
MegaHits 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 featured 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.
