Atlantic City Hilton, Resorts Atlantic City host slot tournament

18 September 2007

ATLANTIC CITY, New Jersey -- (PRESS RELEASE) -– The Atlantic City Hilton and Resorts Atlantic City announced that they will present a $1,000,000 winner-takes-all Wheel of Fortune® slot tournament. Both casinos will host daily qualifying tournaments throughout October and November, culminating in the million-dollar tournament, to be held on Saturday, November 24, 2007 at Resorts.

"For the second year in a row, we are proud to present the incredibly exciting Hilton/Resorts $1 million winner-takes-all Wheel of Fortune slot tournament," said Phil Juliano, Regional Senior Vice President of Marketing for the Atlantic City Hilton and Resorts Atlantic City. "The power of two casinos enables us to hold these seven-figure tournaments and high-profile entertainment like Jerry Seinfeld and Barry Manilow. It's why Hilton and Resorts are a winning pair."

Qualifying tournaments will be held daily at the Atlantic City Hilton (beginning October 9) and Resorts Atlantic City (beginning October 11) through November 23. The daily overall winner of the qualifiers at each casino each day will play in the $1 million-dollar tournament on November 24 at Resorts Atlantic City. To play in one of the qualifier sessions, guests must earn one slot point on their Resorts Destination Casino Club card that day. Those players earning an additional slot point can play in a second qualifying tournament that day.

The $1 million Wheel of Fortune Slot Tournament on November 24 will be the second time Hilton and Resorts joined together for a $1 million slot tournament. On November 25, 2006, Gary Kulawiak of Ellicott City, Maryland won the million dollar prize at the inaugural event which was held at the Atlantic City Hilton Casino.
