BetMGM player wins $1 million progressive slot jackpot

6 June 2024

(PRESS RELEASE) -- BetMGM, a leading iGaming and sports betting operator, announced today that a BetMGM player in Southfield, Michigan won $1 million on a 40-cent bet while playing
Bison Fury. The Michigan player, who chose to remain anonymous, hit the progressive jackpot in April. They plan to spend some of the money on a house.

Developed in-house by Entain, Bison Fury is available exclusively on BetMGM casino platforms. The game is a five-reel, ‘All Ways’ slot that features an American wilderness theme, over 1,000 possible ways to win in the base game and bonus spins.

Another player this spring won a large jackpot on a slot available only on BetMGM casino platforms. A player from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania won “The Big One Colossal Cash" jackpot during her lunch break for $525,726 on MGM Grand Millions Megaways on Borgata Online. The player plans to pay off some debt with the winnings.

MGM Grand Millions Megaways is another slot developed in-house by Entain and only available on BetMGM casino platforms. The 5-reel slot game consists of 243 ways to win in the base games and features imagery of gold lion statues, cash bundles and gold bars.

BetMGM recently launched a jackpot program that offers a luxurious trip to an MGM Resorts International property in Las Vegas or the nearest location to the winner's home for anyone who wins a jackpot exceeding $500,000. This initiative aims to enhance the excitement of winning a jackpot, provide winners with a memorable experience and showcase BetMGM's relationship with MGM Resorts International.

“BetMGM congratulates the recent winners at Borgata Online and BetMGM on their big jackpots,” said Angus Nisbet, Vice President of Gaming, BetMGM. “We love making moments like this even more memorable through our new jackpot program.”

BetMGM casino platforms awarded over $138 million in progressive jackpot payouts in 2023, a 32% year-over-year increase. Exclusive titles created by Entain for BetMGM, such as Bison Fury and MGM Grand Million Megaways, were the source of more than half of the prize total.

BetMGM casino platforms are home to over 2,700 titles across North American markets and one of the largest state-by-state exclusive jackpot network. In 2023, BetMGM was named Casino Operator of the Year by SBC North America, EGR North America, Global Gaming Awards, and American Gambling Awards.
