Leading sports betting and iGaming operator, BetMGM, has been making headlines in the gambling world, having awarded an impressive $75 million in progressive jackpots to its customer base in the first half of 2023. This significant figure marks a potentially record-breaking year for the company, surpassing the $104 million in jackpots awarded throughout 2022.
A substantial portion of the total amount, approximately $30.4 million, was attributed to the strong performance of exclusive slots provided by Entain, which are exclusively available on BetMGM's online casino. These unique titles are known for their engaging features, which attract a loyal player base.
Offering more than 1,500 games, BetMGM's online casino features an exclusive jackpot network that has over 20 games, including popular titles like Bison Fury, MGM Grand Millions, Loot’En Khamun, and Mirage Mega Magma.
In addition to the Entain slots, contributions from other well-known iGaming industry suppliers, including Light & Wonder, NetEnt, and IGT, accounted for a total of $44.3 million in life-changing jackpots awarded during the first half of 2023.
Regional breakdowns showed that Pennsylvania players received approximately $18.8 million in jackpot prizes, while BetMGM New Jersey players were awarded $23.2 million. The highest total of jackpot prize money, $27.4 million, was given out in Michigan during the same period.
BetMGM also highlighted some of the noteworthy jackpots won from January to June this year, such as the $799,048 MGM Grand Millions Megaways jackpot in Michigan on May 15, the $1 million MGM Grand Millions jackpot in Pennsylvania on March 4, and the $2.8 million MGM Grand Millions jackpot in New Jersey on January 7.
Oliver Bartlett, BetMGM’s director of online gaming, expressed his satisfaction with the results and emphasized the company's commitment to providing an engaging selection of jackpot titles. He noted that the progressive jackpot pools offered fantastic options to all players, ensuring thrilling experiences on the platform.
Recently, a remarkable jackpot win of $1.5 million was celebrated at the Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa in New Jersey, one of BetMGM's leading MGM Rewards destinations. The winner, Jin, hit the Bonus Spin progressive on Spanish 21, a feat that adds even further to the excitement surrounding the company's offerings.
As BetMGM continues to provide its customers with unique iGaming experiences and an array of progressive jackpot opportunities, players can eagerly look forward to more life-changing wins in the coming months. With its impressive growth and dedication to excellence, BetMGM remains a prominent player in the betting and gaming industry, continuing to set new standards for progressive jackpots and customer satisfaction.
