A press release from BetMGM wasn’t gracious enough to disclose the identity of the lucky winner, however, it did reveal where the player grabbed his jackpot. According to the statement, the victor cashed out while playing the game on the Borgata online casino platform in NJ. BetMGM went on to give some extra details which go to show just how lucky this player was in triggering that win.
The Big One Colossal Cash jackpot was pegged at around $717,427.87 at the time it dropped making it one of the largest progressive jackpots BetMGM had ever paid out. Not surprisingly, this big prize didn’t come from the biggest wager on the game. It was actually won with a $5 wager on the winning spin.
“BetMGM is proud to continue to deliver life-changing wins to its players through our in-house, networked progressive jackpot games,” said Matthew Sunderland, VP Gaming, BetMGM. “Players in New Jersey have won prizes of this size for some time and, as we grow, our hope is that players in newly-regulated states will do the same.”
The biggest record progressive jackpot for BetMGM was a $3,266,476,20 win. Even more impressive, this jackpot prize was won by a female player in July 2020 with just a $2 wager. The win also happened in the Garden State making it one of the best places for players looking for jackpot prizes.
The winner of the latest prize also indicated what he would be spending his fortune on. According to him, at least part of the money would go to clearing out his mortgage which is a step in the right direction.
In NJ, he is just one of the lucky players to grab a prize as gamblers have had an impressive run lately.
Just late month, a New Jersey player joined the ranks of jackpot winners by hitting a jackpot prize worth almost a million dollars.
This jackpot win was landed on another BetMGM online casino game, MegaJackpots Cleopatra, however, it comes from BetMGM Casino not Borgata Online.
Brick-and-mortar gamblers are not left out of the fun in NJ. Just last week, a winner was announced and the prize was well worth over a million. The player dropped the progressive jackpot poker pot at Tropicana Atlantic City.
Most online casino platforms registered in NJ give players a shot at winning big with games featuring progressive jackpot prizes. Most wins on jackpot games are likely due to luck rather than skill, however, the chances of anyone landing a prize with a spin is just about fair in these casinos. Not to forget, every wager placed on these games makes the jackpots grow larger.
There is hope for other players who are yet to see some luck at the casino whether online or land-based. With so many jackpots dropping, it is just a matter of time before someone in NJ would claim another progressive jackpot prize. And if this continues, then 2021 might be the best year for NJ gamblers.
