New Jersey gamblers winning big on slot machines

Not only are Atlantic City casinos and New Jersey online sportsbooks thriving, but so are the customers at the Garden State’s online and land-based casinos. In the first month and a half of 2020, New Jersey casino slot players won over $10 million.

The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE) collects data for slot jackpots that are over $50,000 at the state’s land-based and online casinos. The report was updated on February 15 and showed that there were 71 winners of jackpots over $50,000 and one winning well over a million.

Also, 20 lucky players won slot jackpots to the tune of six figures in the first few weeks of 2020. Of those 20 players, three of them won jackpots that were over $500,000. At Bally’s Casino on January 19, a slots player on the Wheel of Fortune title played the one-cent slot and walked away with a jackpot of $2.5 million.

Bally’s had the most payouts for slots jackpots among Atlantic City casinos, shelling out more than $3 million. Borgata paid out over $2.8 million for players at its land-based and online casinos.

Here are the combined figures for retail and online slots play:

• Bally’s: $3.1 million
• Borgata: $2.8 million
• Caesars: $1.1 million
• Resorts: $668,268
• SugarHouse: $608,550
• Tropicana: $462,015
• Golden Nugget: $345,099
• Ocean Casino: $298,766
• BetMGM: $197,457
• Hard Rock: $194,310
• Harrah’s: $192,454
• Mohegan Sun: $175,824
• DraftKings: $82,326

The Divine Fortune slots game has been in the news recently with several players coming away happy campers. In the first six weeks of this year, the game had a jackpot win of over $50,000 or more on six occasions and the total paid out for those jackpots was $643,499. The slot machine that paid out the most was Wheel of Fortune. That is not surprising since that was the game where the $2.5 million jackpot was hit and, on top of that, Bally’s paid out $424,297 to a player on that game.

Other slot titles that had big payouts for the first six weeks of 2020 were:

• Game King Double-Double Bonus Poker: $1,680,000
• Top Dollar: $316,200
• Triple Double Diamond: $386,000

The results of the data from the DGE did not have any jackpots that were over $50,000 from the new live slots at the Hard Rock online casino. While Hard Rock did have two slot payouts of over $50,000, they were not won on the live online games. The Hard Rock live slots were launched on February 11 and the report was updated only a few days later.
