US Online Slot Record Broken in Borgata MGM – NJ Player Lands $3.5m From One Spin

  • Win beats previous record iGaming drop of $3.2m.
  • Fortune paid out by BetMGM.
  • Online gaming platform of MGM Resorts International happy with the win.

Slots players across the world dream about dropping a major jackpot.

This dream turned to reality for one lucky punter who landed herself a record $3.5 million while playing a $10 spin on BetMGM’s Borgata Online Casino.

The winner, known only as Dori B., received her payout on November 28. It was certainly a Thanksgiving Weekend to remember.

Winner Claims to Have Anticipated the Drop

According to the lucky punter, she “just knew” the jackpot was going to payout.

How right she was.

With just one $10 spin, she changed her life, earning a gigantic sum of money that should set her up nicely.

A statement released by BetMGM revealed that Dori. B — who has chosen not to reveal her real name — thanked the company.

“Someone is going to hit it [the jackpot], maybe it could be me? On the night I won, all it took was a $10 spin. One second later, I became a millionaire – thanks to BetMGM – and my life has changed forever.”

An incredible stroke of luck for the New Jersey native. But what will she do with all that money?

According to Dori, vacations and volunteering endeavors are already in the pipeline.

“I’m a program manager, so I see things in phases. My next phase – filled with family vacations and volunteer work – starts now. My dream of becoming a mega jackpot winner has come true!”

How the Jackpot Sizes Up to Other Major Hits

While Dori’s jackpot win is phenomenal, it does fall short of the biggest jackpot ever won on slot games.

She will join a burgeoning list of famous big winners, who have earned massive amounts of cash by beating the bookies.

When it comes to jackpots for online slots, however, the world record was claimed by a Finnish player back in 2013. The amount won equated to almost $24 million. Wow indeed.

There have been other major winners of slot jackpots over the years.

  • One lucky punter won $17.3 Million on Arabian Knights in 2011. The player was also Scandinavian and earned the win from Norway.
  • Jon Heywood of the UK took home $19.9 Million On Mega Moolah despite playing just 25c spins. That’s pretty crazy.
  • Heywood was not the largest winner in history, however, with $22.4 Million on Mega Moolah won by another punter in 2018. 

According to the slot fanatic, they dropped the jackpot having played fewer than 50 spins on the game.

Good work!
