[toc]Typically when someone wins $160,000 playing slots, it comes from a big grand prize or a progressive jackpot.

For Sugarhouse Casino user Johnnyboy5555, it was a 12-day session of grinding a single slot game that led to the biggest payout the New Jersey online casino site has ever awarded.

User won all his money playing Mayan Riches slots

On Jan. 13 the user began playing a slot game called Mayan Riches. Over the course of 12 days and more than 20,000 spins, he requested his $160,000 cashout.

The bulk of the user’s winnings came from a single bet which won $99,750. Thanks to that and the other profits, two weeks after starting to play the game, the user is now the most successful player in Sugarhouse’s short history.

“We were thrilled to award this winner our biggest online slot payout to date” said president of Rush Street Interactive Richard Schwartz. “His good fortune proves that there are real opportunities for significant winnings – like this $160,000 payout – for online slot players at”

Sugarhouse in NJ online casino market since September 2016

Sugarhouse’s brick and mortar property is in Pennsylvania, but it is one of online casino offerings in neighboring New Jersey thanks to a deal with Rush Street Games (Sugarhouse’s parent company) and the Golden Nugget Casino in Atlantic City.

Players in the casino’s home state of Pennsylvania cannot take part in the real money casino, but there is a play money version available nationwide. The real money site offers over 300 different casino games including a wide range of slot machines, blackjack, and video poker.

The site also inked a deal with Konami recently to be the exclusive online provider for some of the company’s most popular New Jersey online slot titles.

The cashout was the biggest for Sugarhouse in its short history, but it is a fraction of the most sizable payday online casinos ever awarded in New Jersey.

Borgata Casino has had $150,000 jackpots hit on a single spin.

Even that pales in comparison to the more than $1.3 million Cathy Ruela won on Harrah’s Casino after hitting a 15-line jackpot on the aptly named slots game Millionaire’s Genie in 2014.

It did surpass the amount awarded to VaderWolf, who just recently won the $100,000 Spin & Go grand prize on the online poker site PokerStarsNJ.

The promotion had been offered since April of 2016 without a big winner. Now there are two six-figure online winners in New Jersey just a few days removed from one another.
