LAS VEGAS, Nevada – (Press Release) --Nov. 13, 2001 -- The Veterans Day holiday turned into a big instant payday for a threesome of lucky winners at three separate East Coast casinos who were all playing the popular Betty Boop-themed progressive slots from Alliance Gaming Corporation's (Nasdaq: ALLY) Bally Gaming and Systems business unit.

In the span of just 26 hours, the slots featuring the renowned Roaring 20s cartoon flapper paid out $810,292.67 in payouts, marking the 71st, 72nd and 73rd times the Betty Boop-themed wide-area progressive jackpots have hit nationally.

To date, Betty Boop slots have now produced a total of $18,977,800 in top awards paid instantly to lucky players.

Cynthia Schwarzenbach of Schuylkill Haven, Pa., hit the first jackpot of $111,035.71 at 3:25 ET p.m. Saturday at Bally's Wild Wild West Casino in Atlantic City, N.J., on a quarter ``Roaring 20s'' game, one of 10 distinct game versions in the Betty Boop slots series.
