$2 Million Jackpot Won on WMS' POWERBALL(R) Themed Slot Machine in Las Vegas.

LAS VEGAS, Nev. & WAUKEGAN, Ill. -- WMS Gaming Inc., a subsidiary of WMS Industries Inc. (NYSE:WMS) today reported that a lucky casino patron recently won the largest-to-date wide-area progressive jackpot for a WMS game. The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, won $2,041,324 on a POWERBALL IT'S AMERICA'S GAME[TM] slot machine at the Las Vegas Hilton. After a business dinner, the lucky winner decided to try his hand at the 2o denominated, five-reel video POWERBALL game that he thought had "lots of action going." Excited about his good fortune, he is contemplating what he will do with his jackpot winnings from the approximate $120 he had wagered on the machine.

The popular POWERBALL slot machines, in addition to their large wide-area progressive jackpot, also have a unique 3X3 Matrix Progressive, featuring three rows and three columns of individual, local area progressive jackpots. When the matrix is triggered, it's possible for a player to win from one to nine of these jackpots at once with just one bet. Following the verification of the winning, the wide-area top progressive jackpot was reset for continued play.

This payout was the 68th time a jackpot has been awarded on a WMS wide-area progressive link across the country. In total, WMS has paid more than $23 million in jackpots since the first WMS wide-area progressive games were introduced in June 2004.
