With a meager stake of $2, Sherri W, a woman from New Jersey takes home a record progressive jackpot prize of more than $3.2 million from the online slot game, Luck O’ The Jackpot. Sherri currently holds the record of winning the largest online jackpot prize in NJ history. Her massive win has earned her public recognition, with more and more NJ residents preparing their stakes hoping for the same outcome.
How did A NJ Woman Win A $3.2 Million Jackpot Prize?
Online Casinos in NJ
If you were hoping for some tricks and strategies to replicate from this story, then you might be a little disappointed. Sherri W. claims her win was more of a beginner’s luck rather than a calculated move.
According to her, she had only been playing at the online casino for three days before hitting the jackpot. Winning $3.2 million from a $2 stake is not something you get to see every day but this just proves that with a lot of luck and a little bit of determination, anything is possible.
Sherri is not the only one exhilarated by her huge win, BetMGM online casino also took their time to congratulate and celebrate with her.
According to Matthew Sunderland, vice president of gaming at ROAR Digital, players should expect even bigger jackpots in the future.
While Sherri might hold the title for the biggest jackpot prize in NJ history, she is not the only one to have raked in millions playing slots under Borgata’s license. In 2018, another NJ woman got lucky and won a $2.4 million jackpot at the casino’s physical slots.
Unlike Sherri, she was so lucky to cater away such a prize on her first spin making it one of the best examples of beginner’s luck ever seen in the casino industry.
With these record wins going public, more NJ gamblers are staking extra hoping to replicate these women’s successes.
More Progressive Wins Recorded
Before Sherri got her chance at the jackpot at BetMGM casino last week, the biggest online jackpot prize came from Betfair online casino. A lucky gamer took away $1,520,000 in jackpot winnings from the online slot Let it Ride in 2015.
Just before that, one lucky winner hit $1.3 million on the Millionaire Genie online slot. This was in 2014 at HarrahsCasino.com
While these winnings are massive, they are dwarfed by Sherri’s golden prize of $3,266,476.20.
BETMGM Is Slowly Winning The Hearts Of NJ Gamblers
With the details of July’s numbers still in the dark, June was the best month for Borgata, BetMGM, and Party in terms of online casino revenue. These brands brought in about $16.9 million for that month alone. July is expected to be even better with more people taking to online gambling hoping to cash out on a huge jackpot prize.
These big spikes in revenue have improved Borgata’s claims on the second-place position in the share of the online casino revenue in NJ. This accounts for 19.9% of the total win in the state.
Comparing to the percent from the previous month, it is safe to say that things are moving in a positive direction – and things can only get better. Borgata could boost its market share by paying out huge jackpots winnings as the one Sherri won.
Sherri’s winning is just a good example of what players could achieve if they only keep playing. For Sherri, she can now afford almost anything she thinks of or take that long vacation she had always wanted.
