SARATOGA SPRINGS, New York -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- A resident of Schenectady County hit the most recent Slingo Classic Bonus game $42,895 jackpot on Thursday, December 4 at Saratoga Gaming and Raceway.
New to gaming floors as of November 7th of this year, the Slingo Classic Bonus game is a 5-reel, 20-line nickel game with a bonus round that plays like the Classic Slingo game found at www.Slingo.com and features a statewide progressive jackpot. Every game throughout the state is linked to the top progressive jackpot starting at $20,000.
In addition, there are also three local progressive jackpots that link Slingo games at each individual gaming facility: Saratoga Gaming & Raceway, Finger Lakes Gaming & Raceway, Buffalo Fairgrounds Gaming & Raceway, Tioga Downs Racino and Monticello Gaming & Raceway.
"The new Slingo Classic Bonus games have been very popular since they hit the gaming floor in early November," says Saratoga Gaming and Raceway's Director of Video Gaming Machine Operations Bart Algozzini. "The games are exciting for our patrons to play, especially with the potential to hit the large progressive jackpot."
"We at Slingo are very thrilled that players love the Slingo Classic slot machines and congratulate the winner and Saratoga Downs in winning the very first statewide Slingo Progressive Jackpot in New York," said Dave Lyons, VP of Slingo's Casino Division.
