BetMGM Casino Player Wins $1M Jackpot from Bison Fury Off 40 Cent Bet

A player on the online casino associated with the MGM brand, BetMGM, has turned their 40-cent bet into a seven-figure payday on a progressive slot jackpot game

The player was playing Bison Fury, a progressive jackpot game developed in-house by Entain, which is an investor and co-owner in BetMGM as part of a co-venture with MGM Resorts International. The player had placed a 40-cent bet, turning it into a $1 million payout.

From 40 Cents to Million Dollars

They were playing out of Southfield, Michigan, making it one of the biggest wins on the game to date. The person was not officially revealed by the company, and they had won in April, but news about their feat is only circulating now.

Bison Fury offers an all-ways payout gameplay along with 1,000 fixed winning combinations, bonus spins, and so much more. Yet, these were not the only jackpot wins that BetMGM wanted to boast about in a recent press release.

The company also drew attention to “The Big One Colossal Cash” jackpot paid out to a winner in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania at MGM Grand Millions Megaways on Borgata Online. The player won $525,726 from their wager.

Once again, MGM Grand Millions Megaways is an in-house jackpot game developed by Entain with the goal of popularizing the BetMGM brand and establishing it as one of the hottest online places to enjoy when you are after jackpots.

Commenting on this opportunity, BetMGM VP of Gaming Angus Nisbet cheered on the success of the two mystery winners over the past months and celebrated their achievements. Borgata Online and BetMGM love making moments like those even more memorable, Nisbet noted.

Somewhat relevantly, another player hit a $3 million jackpot in the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City.

From Borgata to BetMGM – Jackpots Await

Nisbet also pointed out a new jackpot program that has been launched by BetMGM in order to create further synergies between players’ online and physical experiences. Overall, BetMGM has been doing very well in terms of total jackpots awarded.

The company has reported $138 million paid out in progressive jackpots to players in 2023 alone, a 32% year-over-year increase, and one of the largest in the country.

Bison Fury and MGM Grand Million Megaways have been the main source of such payouts. This averages $11.5 million in jackpots paid out every month throughout 2023, the company explained. DraftKings recently revealed its jackpot numbers for May 2024, arguing that it had paid out $11.7 million in the month alone.

BetMGM is hoping to close the gap between itself and other local casino and sports betting brands in the United States, with the company showing the most potential in the iGaming sector.
