Connecticut man playing penny slots at Borgata wins $2.6 million on first spin

31 May 2013

ATLANTIC CITY, New Jersey -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa announced that a Connecticut man has won $2,647,821.49 on a penny “The Wizard of Oz Emerald City”® progressive slot machine after playing for less than one minute!

The lucky My Borgata cardholder, who asked to remain anonymous, hit the jackpot at 5:01 p.m. after busting out of a daily Borgata poker tournament. As he walked passed Wolfgang Puck American Grille and noticed the WMS progressive slot machine he figured he would give it a try. Miraculously, on his first spin with a max bet of $4, he struck gold winning over $2.6 million or approximately $44,130 per second.

“It’s always a thrill to see one of our loyal Borgata customers win a life-changing jackpot,” said Tim Burke, Vice President of Slot Operations, of the Connecticut native, who has come to Borgata every month for the past two years. “I can’t think of a more lucrative 60-second investment!”

At the request of the customer, no further information is available at this time.
