ATLANTIC CITY, New Jersey -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- It only took a $1.50 bet on BorgataCasino.com for a Monmouth County man to win one of the largest online jackpots in New Jersey history earlier this week.
The 29-year-old (who asked to remain anonymous) was home visiting his parents when he logged onto Borgata’s newly launched internet gaming site to try his luck on the “Going Nuts” online progressive slot machine. At around 1 a.m. on Tuesday he hit the mega cash jackpot, winning $153,638.75 from the comfort of his bedroom
“I was in utter shock!” exclaimed the New Jersey native. “I could not believe what had just happened…I was just staring at the screen in awe.”
The young man decided to take advantage of BorgataCasino.com’s sign up offer of $20 in real money simply by creating a Borgata Online account. While he enjoys playing online, nothing compares to the fun and excitement at Borgata.
“I’ve been coming to Borgata to play poker and black jack with my friends since I turned 21,” said the man. “It was really cool to win online but I will definitely be returning to Atlantic City soon.”
