$5 progressive side bet wins $1.5 million jackpot

The Borgata Casino in Atlantic City pays a seven-figure jackpot to one lucky player.

  • The latest Borgata Casino jackpot is the biggest in AGS’ history.
  • Six jackpots won at New Jersey online casinos.

Many of us dream of winning the jackpot, but only a few succeed.

On July 14, “Jin,” a table game player from New Jersey, broke the dry spell and won a whopping $1.5 million prize from a $5 progressive side bet.

The generous bonus came from AGS‘ “Bonus Spin Xtreme” — a feature allowing one progressive jackpot winner on community games such as roulette, baccarat, craps, and poker games.

Jin triggered the bonus when his life-changing bet landed on the Triple Diamond Jackpot.

Another Jackpot from Atlantic City Casinos

Jin’s win is the second-largest jackpot won at Borgata this year. On May 19, another fortunate player won a jaw-dropping prize of $2.5 million on a “$5 Wheel of Fortune” slot machine.

Aside from Jin’s lucky strike, the NJ Division of Gaming Enforcement reported nine jackpots of $1 million or more won this year. Three of those have come from an Atlantic City casino.
