It is business as usual at New Jersey online casinos. That is saying something considering the current climate.
And business as usual means paying out big jackpots just as Hard Rock online casino did. In fact, it paid out its biggest jackpot winner to date.
On Friday, a customer named Michael M won $226,170 while playing Lock It Link Night Life.
This marks the second time in less than a month that a slot machine results in a big payday for a Hard Rock casino customer.
On Feb. 28, a player named Tricia K won $125,575.
So far in 2020, New Jersey casinos (both land-based and online) have paid out more than in $13.6 million in jackpots exceeding $50,000 apiece.
And that number comes from the latest New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement report on March 15.
NJ casino players fortunate to have Divine Fortune
In terms of Hard Rock, the jackpot payouts from the online casino were larger than the ones paid out from the land-based property this year.
Here is a list of the license holder’s bigger land-based jackpots:
- Feb. 23: $54,385 playing Lightning Cash High Stakes
- Feb. 15: $50,200 playing Double Top Dollar
- Jan. 31: $123,000 playing Happy Lantern (Lightning Link)
- Jan. 18: $71,310.29 playing Lightning Cash High Stakes
Hard Rock online players have the most luck while playing Divine Fortune.
The operator maintains a growing list of all-time payouts, and the game is listed six times in the top 10, which dates back to January 2019.
Three of the jackpots crack the top five highest payouts:
- March 29, 2019: $124,781
- Jan. 18, 2019: $113,831
- Dec. 16, 2019: $103,497
Hard Rock online casino commitment
Hard Rock is still one of the new operators on the NJ online casino scene.
The serious commitment to the industry became clearer earlier this year when Hard Rock unveiled the world’s first live slots studio.
To keep things interesting while AC remains in lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic, Hard Rock players can compete for $15K in live slots bonus cash.
The top 260 players are competing for prizes ranging from $30 to $2,000.
Sure, winning $226,170 sounds much more exciting, but any win is a win. Of course, there is always a chance that a player could hit a big jackpot playing live slots.
