QUARTERMANIA JACKPOT REACHES WORLD-RECORD LEVEL

 RENO, Nev., Feb. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Quartermania machines throughout Nevada casinos have reached a world-record level for a quarter slot jackpot, now at $1,757,000 and growing, International Game Technology (IGT) said today.
 The previous world-record quarter jackpot -- $1,726,661 -- was hit on a Quartermania machine at the Gold Strike Hotel & Gambling Hall in Jean, Nev., on Nov. 22, 1992, by a Carmichael, Calif., woman.
 "Where else but Nevada can you win a jackpot of this size for only a two-quarter bet," asked Bob Bittman, marketing vice president for the Reno-based International Game Technology.
 Developed by International Game Technology, Quartermania is a statewide progressive slot system that currently links more than 1,000 machines in over 130 Nevada casinos. The Quartermania primary jackpot builds from a base amount of $400,000, which can be won for a two-coin bet.
 The next person to hit the Quartermania jackpot will be the system's 98th winner.
