NICHOLS, New York -- A quick spin of the reels on a Slingo
Classic Bonus slot machine was all it took for one lucky player to walk away with a $61,664.85 jackpot. This is the single largest Slingo Classic Bonus progressive jackpot won in New York and marks the eighth statewide progressive win for the video slot game that has been available since last November.
Duane Eccleston, a resident of Waverly, N.Y., hit the winning jackpot on July 5, 2009 at the Tioga Downs Casino in Nichols, New York. Duane won on a 5-reel, 20-line, 5-cent slot game that features a top statewide progressive jackpot that can be won on any of the 48 Slingo Classic Bonus video slot games connected throughout New York state.
Tioga Downs Casino owners, management and staff congratulate Mr. Eccleston on his win and share in the excitement that the largest Slingo Classic Bonus progressive jackpot in NY was won on one of their video gaming machines.
"We at Slingo also congratulate Duane for hitting the largest Slingo Classic Jackpot in New York," said David Lyons, VP of Slingo Casino Division.
The Slingo Classic Bonus video slot game features stacked wild Slingo Jokers and scatter pays with a bonus game that plays like the classic Slingo online game and activates when the Slingo card symbol appears on reels 1 and 5, with all lines in play.
The Slingo Classic Bonus video slot game is available at every casino gaming track in New York. To learn more about the game and where it can be played at a casino near you, please visit www.slingogaming.com
