It’s one of those wins you dream about, but they never happen, right?


A player by the name of Sherri W. had a huge win while playing BetMGM online casino’s Luck O’ The Jackpot progressive slot.

Her $2 bet won her $3,266,476.20. This is a new record for New Jersey.

And, practice doesn’t make perfect. Sherri had only been playing slots for a couple of days when she struck gold!

BetMGM awarded a $3,266,476.20 jackpot prize!

You can find some other great jackpots at BetMGM. These include:

Previous NJ Jackpot Record

Of course, winning jackpots happen regularly at New Jersey’s online casinos. Every one of them has a few progressive slots to choose from.

Most casinos also list the running jackpot amount there for you on the home page. 

But the BetMGM win was over double the previous record. That was $1.52 million, which had been won on Betfair’s Let It Ride in 2015.

Other Big NJ Wins

Scotty W had a pretty good May. While the land-based casinos were closed, he won $1 million on a single spin. Scotty was playing Pillars of Asgard at Golden Nugget online casino when he had his huge win on May 22, 2020. 

(Some guys have all the luck! Scotty W had reportedly already won a Ford Mustang!)

In 2014, a player won $1,334,641 playing Millionaire Genie on Harrahs.


Even though Luck O’ The Jackpot has a rather low RTP of 96%, it can still pay out big. Try out this and other slots at BetMGM. 

BetMGM is partnered with Borgata, and they also have some great live dealer casino games too!
