What exactly is that saying? Is it true that less is more? That old proverb holds more weight than you realize for one New Jersey resident.
A New Jersey online casino player won a multimillion-dollar prize a few months ago, making him the year’s second-largest digital payout. BetMGM says an anonymous gambler earned more than $3 million on a $2 bet in October. The fortunate player was playing “Bison Fury” at Borgata Online Casino.

A New Jersey Online Casino Jackpot Winner is On His Way to Las Vegas
The gambler is a longtime consumer of the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, according to a press statement announcing the significant win at Borgata Online Casino NJ. The mystery gambler plans to spend their earnings on “early retirement, fun, and travel, hopefully including a first trip to Las Vegas.”
Borgata’s parent firm, MGM Resorts International, owns BetMGM in a 50/50 partnership with Entain plc. BetMGM operates an online casino in New Jersey using Borgata’s NJ gaming license.
BetMGM also has online casinos in locations such as Michigan and West Virginia. According to the firm, gamblers in those states also won significant prizes in October, with a $1.2 million hit off a $5 stake in Michigan.
“BetMGM congratulates the newest players at Borgata Online and BetMGM on their large jackpot wins,” said Angus Nisbet, BetMGM’s vice president of gaming, in a statement.
Online Casinos are Paying Millions Out
This year, the business has paid over $75 million in winners. It is on track to “shatter the $100 million jackpot milestone set in 2022.”
“Bison Fury” is only accessible on BetMGM gaming platforms. According to Nisbet, the game is a five-reel, “all ways” slot with an American wilderness theme that has contributed significantly to BetMGM’s success.
“Our award-winning online casino’s in-house games, such as Bison Fury and MGM Grand Millions, are a key differentiator.” We work relentlessly to develop games that excite players.”
According to published data from the Division of Gaming Enforcement, 15 jackpots of $1 million or more were won in 2023 from internet casinos in New Jersey and Atlantic City casinos. Online gamblers have won eleven of those jackpots.
