2 April 2024

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Empire City Casino by MGM Resorts announced that the IGT Wheel of Fortune Triple Stars slot machine jackpot has exceeded $1.6 million, the second highest jackpot available in the history of the entertainment destination, and continues to grow. Unlike progressive jackpots which are typically shared across several casinos, this jackpot is exclusively available to be won at Empire City.

Several six-figure jackpots are waiting to be claimed at Empire City, the largest gaming floor in the MGM Resorts fleet, and more than two hundred five-figure jackpots await winners:

- $412,158 on Hot Shot Twin Fire $0.01 denomination.
- $345,261 on IGT Wheel of Fortune® Triple Stars® $5.00 denomination.
- $168,623 on Quick Hits Platinum over $0.01 denomination.
- $164,408 Golden Fire Link on multiple denominations.
- $163,107 Hot Shot Inferno $0.01 denomination.
- $142,632 Money Link - Great Immortals $1.00 denomination.

“The energy at Empire City is electric with another million-dollar moment waiting to happen,” said Ed Domingo, President and COO of Empire City Casino by MGM Resorts. “We have added over 1,000 new state-of-the-art games to our gaming floor, providing new ways for our guests to have fun and win big.”

Only three months into the year and five six-figure jackpots have already been won at Empire City, including:

- $144,597 on Light & Wonder Money Link with a $1.00 denomination.
- $124,559 won on Light & Wonder Ultimate Fire Link with a $0.01 denomination.
- $122,796 on Light & Wonder Monopoly Money grab with a $0.01 denomination.
- $116,173 on IGT Samurai 888 Takeo Progressive with a $0.01 denomination.
- $100,012 on Light & Wonder Double Jackpot Wild with a $1.00 denomination.

The winner of the current six-figure Wheel of Fortune jackpot will join the Empire City Millionaires Club, whose most recent member is Leo of Yonkers who took home a jackpot of $1.088 million in December 2022.

The highest jackpot on record at Empire City is held by Theresa P. of Ossining, New York with a $2,919,162 win, and Theresa is also the sole two-time member of the Millionaire Club having hit a jackpot of $1,469,368 just a few months after her nearly $3 million win. Other members of the Millionaire Club include Linda P. of Connecticut who won a $1,514,634 jackpot; Howard G. of Long Island who won $1,473,503; and Linda H. of Thornwood who took home a “nearly there” million-dollar jackpot of $961,411.
