(PRESS RELEASE) -- Bally's Atlantic City has just announced that at 12:38 p.m. on Thursday, May, 22nd one lucky Total Rewards Member struck it big. Harry Walmar, a local from Little Egg Harbor, NJ, was playing a $1 Wheel of Fortune wide-area-progressive slot-machine, on the newly renovated Bally’s gaming floor, when he hit for $1,055,732.

“On behalf of Caesars Entertainment, we would like to congratulate Harry Walmar on this life changing jackpot and thank him for his loyalty to Bally’s,” said Kevin Ortzman, President of Bally’s, Caesars, and Showboat Atlantic City. “I can think of no better way to kick-off this Memorial Day Weekend celebration than by making this loyal Total Rewards Member a millionaire.”
