$3.8 Million Jackpot Hits at Borgata, Biggest in Casino’s History

At approximately 11:30 pm last night (Dec. 30) a Maryland man in Atlantic City on vacation won a $3,843,951 jackpot on a $5 “Wheel of Fortune” progressive slot machine at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.

“We couldn’t be more excited to end the year on such a high note,” said Tim Burke, vice president of slots at Borgata. “What a perfect way to ring in the New Year for one of our lucky Borgata customers.”

The $3.8M jackpot was one of the largest in the casino’s nine-year history, according to a statement released by the Borgata Monday afternoon, Dec. 31.

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

    Was there, when he won..he and his wife were in late 70s. They didn’t yell, scream, or show emotion. Weird.

  2. Jacob Says:

    Were they in shock? That is weird…Fakin Happiness

    No emotion…. late 70’s , gambling 15 dollars a spin, high rollers, maybe won all that they have lost over their lives.

    I was there too. They were quiet because he was thinking he was having a heart attack, because he was so in shock. Good for them. I hope their room was upgraded, and comp’d all weekend. I believe the machine is back to a bit over 3MM.

    Love playing those machines ini the front. But hate the gawkers when you only win 400.00. I prever the wheel of fortunes in the Muralto, it is much quieter.

    Congrats to the happy couple!

    machine went to 550,000 i was there for the weekend and party. they get comps on time and denomination…so depending on how long they played that is where they get the comps from.
