HOOFDDORP, The Netherlands -- On 27 April 2007, Holland Casino will introduce a new national jackpot: the Mega Millions Jackpot. 151 machines all over the country are linked to this Mega Millions Jackpot.
Holland Casinos will feature Mega Millions Jackpots
The starting sum of this mounting Jackpot is EUR 1,000,000. Visitors can play for the Mega Millions Jackpot at all Holland Casino branches, except at Holland Casino Schiphol.
Visitors to Holland Casino can play on the Mega Millions machines with a minimum amount of as little as 5 euro cents, playing for the 'regular' jackpot of 2,000,000 credits, which comes down to a prize of EUR100,000. If a visitor wishes to have a chance of winning the Mega Millions Jackpot of at least one million euros, the bet to be paid will be EUR 3.75. The first prize is expected to be won once every 6 weeks.
The new jackpot makes use of the latest Philips 3D technique, enabling Holland Casino guests to enjoy astonishing 3D animations without the need of 3D spectacles, as from 27 April. When the jackpot is won, it will look as if the euros actually fly out of the screen. The current score of the jackpot is indicated in 3D as well. Additionally, the game is explained to the player by means of a special 3D animation. Holland Casino is the first organization in the European world of entertainment that uses this Philips technology on a large scale to offer its visitors a surprising experience. Following the successful test with 3D screens at Holland Casino in Breda, the national introduction of the screens in all 17 Dutch branches has been completed.
