|Two lucky players hit a jackpot of over $200,000 last Sunday. The brand new Quartermania progressive jackpot slot games were hit twice in Nevada casinos.|
Tracy Gray of North Carolina hit the first jackpot at the Las Vegas Flamingo on Sunday morning. He won the Winner Mega Jackpots award, walking away with an instant $226,000! James Mckee of Ohio struck gold at the Stardust just before midnight taking a just as impressive $201,000.
Quartermania has just been revised. The latest versions feature two 3-coin, 3-line spinning reel slot games. Triple Texas Tea is based on the ever-popular video slot whilst the other, Diablo Diamond, is a new take on the classic style Double-Diamond theme. Bonus games feature in both where a player may progress to three bonus wheels. At this point either Texas Ted or Diablo declare the mounting grand total. As if that wasn’t enough Quartermania also has a “MiniMania” award starting at $2,000.
Along with nineteen other progressive systems in Nevada Quartermania is developed by International Gaming Technologies (IGT). The new versions have both been touched up with colourful graphics and lifelike sound. John Sears, vice president of IGT: “These new Quartermania games are hotter than Hades, … appropriate since one of them is called Diablo Diamonds.'
