Legalizing and regulating online gambling in New Jersey has been troubled for many of the companies wanting to start up there and with a market that has yet to show its true face, many are not sure exactly how big it is and how much money there is in it - For the operators.
Because for players it is a great alternative to go to the real casino's in the city and instead sit in the comforts of your home and play your favourite game, whether its blackjack, slots or poker. And that's exactly what an anonymous player from Monmouth County in New Jersey did, playing the "Going Nuts" slot machine on BorgataOnline.com, which is managed in cooperation with PartyGaming.
The 29-year old player was enjoying one of his favourite games while visiting his parents, when all of the sudden he saw that he had hit a massive jackpot and won $150,000 in one single spin on the "Going Nuts" slot.
Not only was the player thrilled and excited, he couldn't believe that he had been so lucky to win one of the biggest legal online jackpots available. The game is basically a squirrel-themed game where it is your objective to get the special jackpot symbols on the reel. It doesn't matter where on the five reels they come, it is just important to actually get them.
With the win, BorgataOnline has had one of their first online casino success stories in the regulated online USA market and hopefully more are to come soon.
