Everi Reports First Jackpot Lockdown™ Jackpot Winner
LAS VEGAS and THACKERVILLE, Okla., April 07, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Everi Holdings Inc. (“Everi” or the “Company”), the casino gaming industry’s single source provider of gaming products and payments solutions, reported today that a lucky player at WinStar World Casino and Resort in Thackerville, OK, won the first ever top Jackpot Lockdown™ jackpot on April 1. The winner took home a jackpot of more than $116,000 while playing the Jackpot Lockdown High Voltage™ three-reel mechanical game theme, one of two games featured on the new Jackpot Lockdown Wide-Area Progressive (“WAP”) link from Everi. The Jackpot Lockdown base jackpot has been reset to $100,000.
Jackpot Lockdown, one of the first WAP links developed exclusively for Class II markets, went live at four casinos in Oklahoma in late February. It combines the popular Mega Meltdown® and High Voltage three-reel mechanical games with a large linked progressive platform and unique math model to heighten player excitement and engagement. Jackpot Lockdown also features the Company’s recently introduced Foundation™ sign, a visually stimulating 65-inch sign package with LCD monitors that amplifies the celebration of a big win. The Jackpot Lockdown WAP link and game themes are expected to debut at additional casinos in Oklahoma, Texas, California, Arizona and Wisconsin over the next several months.
“Our new Jackpot Lockdown wide-area-progressive jackpot games have proven to be very popular with casino patrons since their introduction several weeks ago and we are excited to share in the thrill of the first jackpot win,” said Dean Ehrlich, Executive Vice President and Games Business Leader for Everi. “We will soon install these entertaining games in more casinos and more markets, adding additional licensed content to the jackpot build-up and eventual big wins. Our WAP games are an important component of our overall product strategy and we’ve gotten off to an exciting start.”
