JACKPOT! LIGHTNING STRIKES TWICE IN ONE DAY AT BORGATA



ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (January 27, 2014)
– Two very fortunate customers saw lady luck smile on them Sunday afternoon at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, winning jackpots totaling almost $300,000 within less than an hour and a half of each other.

 

At 1:25 p.m., a customer from Cherry Hill, NJ was playing IGT’s 25-cent wide area progressive “Wheel of Fortune®” slot machine when three “WOF” symbols appeared on the payout line signifying a jackpot of $173,458.99.

 

The winning ways did not stop there however as less than 90 minutes later (2:50 p.m.) a Bergen County, NJ man saw his 5 of a kind in “Joker Poker” award him a cool $100,000.00. Combining both jackpots, that’s $273,458.99 in 85 minutes!  Both winners chose to remain anonymous.

 

“It was a great day to try your luck here at Borgata,” said Senior Vice President of Operations Joe Lupo. “We are proud to offer the loosest slots in both Atlantic City and Pennsylvania and it is a pleasure to see such a lucrative afternoon for two of our customers.”

 

Wide area progressive linked systems link slot machines at multiple locations throughout the city. The “Wheel of Fortune®” progressive slot system is manufactured by IGT Gaming.
