The summer temperatures continue to escalate, and the record-breaking jackpot at Empire City Casino continues to percolate, with the potential score on the Wheel of Fortune Triple Stars slot machine now standing at $1,195,124. The jackpot hiked past the $1 million mark for the first time two months ago (April 15), and guests continue to flock to the Westchester casino to try their luck.

The record jackpot when hit will exceed the previous mark by more than nearly $700,000 and counting. Manuel Esteche of Port Chester hit for $571,000 in February, breaking the previous record jackpot of $509,000 won in November 2014 by Moosue Stefern of Bergenfield, New Jersey.

Cherie Czerniowski, who oversees slot operations at Empire City, reminds players “This is not a wide area progressive with slot machines linked between various casinos, as seen at most properties. This jackpot can only be hit here at Empire City.”
