Lightning Strikes Twice At Golden Nugget: Two Jackpots Hit Hours Apart

lightning bolts striking at dawn
Golden Nugget’s online casino may have been mistaken for the set of the Oprah Winfrey Show, where the theme of the day was apparently, “You get a jackpot, and you get a jackpot… Everyone gets a jackpot!”

In the span of two hours, not one but two player hit six-figure jackpots playing Golden Nugget’s online slot machines.

According to a press release from Golden Nugget, “A.S of Washington, New Jersey won $200,362 from a $20 bet, and Joseph of Easton, Pennsylvania won $207,350 from a $100 bet.”

Six-figure online jackpots aren’t unusual in the New Jersey online casino market, but to have two $200,000 jackpots hit on the same site within hours of one another is a very rare occurrence. As Golden Nugget put it, “it seems like anything can happen at Golden Nugget Online Casino – and these two $200K winners are living proof.”

At Golden Nuggets it’s all about content, content, content

If it was going to happen somewhere, chances are it would be at Golden Nugget, the busiest online casino in New Jersey, with the largest selection of game titles.

Golden Nugget offers more online slots than any other New Jersey online casino, with the current count standing at over 400 online casino games on desktop and over 200 slot titles on mobile.

Golden Nugget is also constantly adding new content, with new games coming online every week.

In fact, it was two recently launched games that were hit for the jackpots. According to the press release from Golden Nugget “The winning slot games, Jungle Spirit and Get Clucky, are new to the Golden Nugget website.”

The secret to Golden Nugget’s success

Part of GN’s success is undoubetdly its selection of games, but games alone won’t propel you to the top of a very competitive market.

Golden Nugget’s success is due to a combination of many factors, including:

  • The casino’s early adoption of live dealer games.
  • It’s decision to focus exclusively on online casino, foregoing online poker.
  • A strong team led by Vice President of Online Gaming Thomas Winter.
  • Ongoing product development.
  • Strategic partnerships with Betfair and Rush Street’s SugarHouse Casino.
