A lucky BetMGM casino player now knows what it’s like to feel like the Queen of the Nile.

An unnamed player recently won $916,149 on IGT’s MegaJackpots Cleopatra online slot.

IGT says it awarded the jackpot Jan. 27.

BeMGM + IGT = excitement

BetMGM is the most recent operator to join IGT’s legendary MegaJackpots Wide Area Progressive (WAP) link for the Garden State. The games were added to its library las month.

But without a doubt, there is excitement among players.

“When BetMGM introduced IGT PlayDigital’s MegaJackpots games to our platform, we immediately saw the increased excitement among our jackpot players, not to mention the positive impact on our business,” said Matthew Sunderland, BetMGM vice president of gaming.

And some of that positive impact is noticeable when looking at the monthly NJ online casino revenue results.

Borgata, the land-based partner for BetMGM, saw a 168% year-over-year increase last year. It is the understanding of PlayNJ that a bulk of the casino’s reported Internet gaming revenue is from BetMGM.

he New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement will release January numbers on Feb. 17.

MegaJackpots is the favorite

IGT bills MegaJackpots games as NJ’s favorite online WAP slot product.

Sunderland says “Offering uniquely compelling games such as those in IGT’s MegaJackpots portfolio allow us to grow and deliver next-level, loyalty-driven gaming experiences.”

New games are critical for players seeking something new and fun.

“IGT PlayDigital customers around the world are seeking out innovative PlayCasino solutions such as MegaJackpots WAP games to differentiate their casinos, achieve growth and engage players who are spending more time at home and on their mobile devices,” said Enrico Drago, IGT PlayDigital senior vice president. 

IGT MegaJackpots since 2018 NJ launch

The company introduced its WAP MegaJackpots games to the NJ online casino market in 2018. Call it an extension of several successful years in international markets.

As New Jersey’s premier online slots jackpot product, MegaJackpots’ jackpots reset at $500,000 and grow with play.
