Following $900K win just two days prior, BetMGM has awarded nearly $2M in jackpots in June
JERSEY CITY, NJ – (June 8, 2021) – BetMGM, a leading sports betting and digital gaming company, announced that a BetMGM Casino player in Michigan has won “The Big One Colossal Cash” jackpot and turned a $4 bet into $1,016,263.99.
“I’m still in shock by the size of this win! I’m referring to it as good karma though and, before I treat myself to anything special, I’m going to pay it forward and use the money to help my family,” said the winning player. “I want to pay off their mortgages and loans and make sure that they’re happy, healthy, and well-educated. Thank you, BetMGM, for helping to make that happen!”
This jackpot was won while playing Bison Fury, a game that was developed at BetMGM’s in-house games studio and launched only on June 2. Both Bison Fury and The Big One Colossal Cash jackpot are exclusively accessible online in Michigan through BetMGM Casino. The win comes just days after another BetMGM player won the “Mega Jackpot,” while playing NetEnt’s Divine Fortune, taking home more than $990,000.
“After awarding $9.5M in jackpot prizes last year, BetMGM is thrilled to deliver our players a world-class experience and great access to life-changing wins,” said Matthew Sunderland, Vice President of Gaming, BetMGM. “Through our in-house, networked progressive jackpot games and vendor partnerships bringing more chances for a big win, we’ll continue engaging players and offering even larger prizes in the future.”
