The holidays are a little brighter for one New Jersey resident who hit a six-figure jackpot on BetRivers Online Casino NJ.
The anonymous 33-year-old woman from Cumberland County took to the NJ online casino landscape and won a $662,000 on a $0.60 bet playing MegaJackpot, according to Rush Street Interactive, the parent company of BetRivers Online Casino.
She plans to spread the joy around this holiday season. In a press release announcing the big win, the lucky gambler said she would be paying off some debt, investing a large chunk and giving her two kids a great holiday.
“This is the first year I don’t feel stressed about the holidays. And now I also feel like I’m secure in my future, so I don’t have to worry about that either.”
Loyal BetRivers NJ player hits it big after bedtime
According to RSI, the BetRivers Online Casino winner has been playing internet slots for nearly six years. She’s been loyal to RSI, dating back to when the company’s NJ online casino was PlaySugarHouse.
“I didn’t think I would ever win, especially since it was only a $0.60 bet. I couldn’t believe it,” she said.
Rehashing her big win, the South Jersey mom said she was putting her daughter to bed when she jumped on the BetRivers mobile app to play.
At first, she didn’t realize she won the MegaJackpot and kept playing. When the jackpot reset, she contacted support to ask if she had really won. BetRivers confirmed she had.
Apparently, her fiancé didn’t believe it either until they both saw the life-changing sum hit the bank account.
Mattias Stetz, chief operating officer of RSI, said in a statement:
“We love when our players win life-changing jackpots. This is one of many jackpot wins we’ve had which proves our players can win big, even when placing small bets.”
Big jackpot awarded by NJ online casino leader
Legal online casinos in NJ just celebrated a milestone 10-year anniversary in November. In the last decade, internet gambling sites have generated more than $7 billion in revenue and over $1 billion in taxes to the state of New Jersey.
BetRivers Online Casino operates under the gaming license of Golden Nugget Atlantic City. State gaming regulators do not publish individual operator financial data; monthly reports are grouped together under a casino licensee.
The Golden Nugget AC grouping – which includes BetRivers, FanDuel Online Casino, Betway Casino and Golden Nugget Online Casino – is the highest-grossing set of operators in the Garden State. Year-to-date, the group has reported over $423.5 million, according to the Division of Gaming Enforcement.
