Slot players in Pennsylvania and other states won impressive amounts in 2022 on BetMGM online casino. The wins added up to a whole lot of zeroes.

There were so many that the final total hit nine digits, an impressive sum that is a welcome sign for PA online casino players. BetMGM recently announced that players using its online casino won $104.4 million in progressive slot payouts last year, including $28.9 million in PA alone.

“We take tremendous pride in eclipsing the $100 million mark for jackpot payouts to BetMGM Casino players,” said Matt Prevost, Chief Revenue Officer at BetMGM. “We continue to innovate our online gaming product and look forward to offering some of the highest progressive jackpots in the United States in 2023.”

Michigan winners led all states with a total of $38.3 million, while players in neighboring New Jersey brought home $30.2 million, according to BetMGM.

BetMGM Casino’s biggest wins featured five $2 million jackpots

BetMGM’s win totals included some massive jackpots for individual winners, with all five of BetMGM’s biggest payouts arriving in Michigan and New Jersey.

The top five wins of 2022 are listed below, along with the game that provided the payout:

  • $2.8 million – April 16, Bison Fury (NJ)
  • $2.5 million – March 3, Bison Fury (MI)
  • $2.3 million – Sept. 9, MGM Grand Millions (MI)
  • $2.2 million – Aug. 4, Bison Fury (NJ)
  • $2.1 million – Dec. 23, MGM Grand Millions (MI)

Bison Fury provides the potential for huge jackpots

Bison Fury, which produced three of the five biggest wins, is a 5-by-4 slot game with a Wild West theme. Symbols include letters, numbers, wolves, canyons, horses and of course, bison. The “All Ways Slot” has 1,024 ways to win and includes free spins, as well.

The Eagle Coin wild symbol can substitute for all other symbols. Three or more Scattered Sunset symbols anywhere on the reels awards the free spins feature. And The Big One jackpot can be triggered anytime, either during normal spin, auto spin or after the feature game.

There are five different jackpots, each of which has a unique color, with the lavender Colossal Cash Jackpot being the largest. The theoretical Return to Player rate of Bison Fury is 93.49% excluding the jackpot, and 96.49% with the jackpot included.

MGM Grand Millions could bring a ‘lion’s share’ of riches

MGM Grand Millions also produced some gigantic jackpots in 2022. That game is also a five-reel “All Ways” slot with a casino theme that includes letters, poker chips, bundles of cash and of course, the famous MGM lion. There are 243 possible ways to win in the main game and 1,024 ways to win in free spins.

The MGM Grand Millions Big One jackpot can be triggered anytime – either during normal spin, auto spin or after the feature game. Much like Bison Fury, there are five possible jackpots, each with a unique color, and the lavender Colossal Cash Jackpot resulting in the biggest win.

Any wager of $1.35 or more is eligible for jackpot wins. MGM Grand Millions has a theoretical Return to Player rate of 92.0127% excluding the jackpot, and jumps to 95.0131% with the jackpot included.

BetMGM online casino offers a variety of jackpot slots

Overall, BetMGM’s game menu features more than 25 jackpot slots. In addition to Bison Fury and MGM Grand Millions, some of the other popular jackpot titles include:

  • Divine Fortune
  • Loot’En Khamun
  • Mercy of the Gods
  • Mirage Mega Magma
  • Pittsburgh Steelers Deluxe

BetMGM has grown into one of the biggest PA online casinos

BetMGM’s progressive slots and other popular casino games are helping to fuel Hollywood Penn National’s dominance in Pennsylvania’s online casino sector. According to recently released statistics, Hollywood Penn National (which includes BetMGM, Hollywood and DraftKings) took in $66,325,395 in online casino revenue in January 2023.

That number puts it far ahead of the other competition among Pennsylvania’s online casinos. Rivers Philadelphia was second with a total revenue of $35,535,032, barely above half of Hollywood Penn National’s total.

The BetMGM brand is performing well on a national scale, too. The company is the leading iGaming operator in the United States, with an estimated 29% of the national online casino market share.

“A combination of in-house produced slots and engaging content from our fantastic suppliers has proved to be popular with players and fueled our position as the online casino market leader,” said Oliver Bartlett, Director of Online Gaming at BetMGM. “We love hearing players’ stories and their reactions to winning life changing jackpots.”

It won’t be long before there’s another winning player and another winning story.
