INTERNATIONAL GAME TECHNOLOGY: NEVADA NICKELS REACHES NEW WORLD-RECORD LEVEL; QUARTERMANIA EXCEEDS MILLION-DOLLAR AMOUNT

 RENO, Nev., Jan. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- International Game Technology (IGT) issued the following today:
 All it takes is 15 cents and a pull of the slot handle to win the Nevada Nickels jackpot, currently at a new world record of $641,000 and growing.
 As of Monday morning, the Nevada Nickels jackpot surpassed the previous nickel slot machine world record of $632,691, hit Nov. 9 on a Nevada Nickels slot machine in Sparks, Nev.
 In addition to the new world-record Nevada Nickels jackpot, the current Quartermania jackpot has gone over the $1-million mark for only the sixth time in the slot system's history. The jackpot, which stands at $1,070,000 and growing, can be won for only a 50-cent wager. The next person to hit the jackpot will be the 98th Quartermania winner and the sixth Quartermania millionaire.
 "It is quite unusual for both of these progressive jackpots to be as statistically overdue at the same time as they are presently," according to Bob Bittman, vice president of marketing for International Game Technology. "This gives players two exciting chances to change their lives with a very small investment."
 Nevada Nickels and Quartermania, developed and administered by IGT, are separate statewide progressive slot systems that link slot carousels throughout the state. The Quartermania jackpot, which begins at $400,000, can be found in more than 130 Nevada casinos. Nevada Nickels, the first statewide progressive slot system for nickel players, builds from a base amount of $200,000; it's located in more than 100 casinos statewide.
