BetMGM Players Hits $900K On IGT’s MegaJackpots Cleopatra Slot

An unnamed player at BetMGM casino recently hit a whopping $900k in jackpot money on IGT’s MegaJackpot Cleopatra slot and it looks like there is more to come as players rush to the MegaJackpots.

BetMGM recently joined IGT’s legendary MegaJackpots Wide Area Progressive (WAP) link for New Jersey. The games were added to its catalog in January giving players new opportunities to hit big even with small stakes.

“When BetMGM introduced IGT PlayDigital’s MegaJackpots games to our platform, we immediately saw the increased excitement among our jackpot players, not to mention the positive impact on our business,” said Matthew Sunderland, BetMGM vice president of gaming.

The said “positive impact” can be seen when looking at the monthly NJ online casino revenue reports.

Borgata which serves as BetMGM land-based partner has reported a 168% year-over-year increase in 2020. It is one of the biggest revenue reports, especially for a year when casino operators were not able to operate fully. A bulk of the revenue came from the internet gaming revenue report of BetMGM.

With the addition of the MegaJackpots slot titles, things look brighter for the online operator. IGT already claims MegaJackpots games are the favorite NJ online WAP slot product.

According to Sunderland “Offering uniquely compelling games such as those in IGT’s MegaJackpots portfolio allow us to grow and deliver next-level, loyalty-driven gaming experiences.”

New games are important in maintaining player loyalty especially for those always seeking something new and fun.

“IGT PlayDigital customers around the world are seeking out innovative PlayCasino solutions such as MegaJackpots WAP games to differentiate their casinos, achieve growth and engage players who are spending more time at home and on their mobile devices,” said Enrico Drago, IGT PlayDigital senior vice president.

IGT MegaJackpots Take On Atlantic City

IGT is one of the biggest names when it comes to software development so it comes as no surprise that its MegaJackpots are making waves. While BetMGM may have joined its operator lineup not quite long ago, the operator had set up shop in the NJ online casino market since 2018.

This expansion is paying off hugely in the highly successful New Jersey market. MegaJackpots’ jackpots are extremely exciting as they grow –  giving players more chances to score a big payout even with a small wager.

You can start out with the most popular titles:

  • Golden Goddess
  • Ocean Belles
  • Siberian Storm

Get in the Game of MegaJackpots

Since its launch, IGT MegaJackpots have grown exponentially. The software provider initially started with 4 gaming operators in New Jersey giving players access to only two MegaJackpots games. The jackpot pool then kicked off at $500,000 and increased as players wagered on the games. The progressive jackpot will continue to grow until a lucky player claims the prize.

IGT MegaJackpots offers are expected to increase further in New Jersey as the year rolls out.

According to Enrico Drago, senior vice-president of PlayDigital at IGT: Launching the first cross-platform online WAP games in the US reinforces IGT’s commitment and leadership in delivering ‘industry-first’ innovation that elevates the player experience across multiple channels.

“IGT’s MegaJackpots games continue to entertain players in the UK and other mature digital gaming markets around the world, and we believe our customers in New Jersey will benefit from incorporating life-changing jackpots on proven themes such as Cleopatra and Siberian Storm into their digital content offerings.”

The present offers of Ocean Belles, Siberian Storm, and Golden Goddess also provide the same winning chances as its most popular video slots.

The software developer had also introduced a new version of the MegaJackpot known as Jeopardy. However, this offer is only available in Nevada but NJ players can still hope for more in the coming months.
