ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (February 13, 2013) – It was an extremely happy birthday for one lucky customer who took home nearly $1 million playing slots at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.


The Bensalem, PA resident, who wished to remain anonymous, came to Borgata to celebrate both her and her cousin’s birthday on Monday night and, after investing only $50, received the ultimate birthday present when she hit a jackpot of $924,231.89 on a $1 “Wheel of Fortune”® progressive slot machine. 


“I’m still in shock,” stated the Pennsylvania native. “I didn’t even know what happened until the woman two seats across from me said you hit the jackpot!”


Monday’s $1 million hit marks the third time in less than two months a Borgata customer has hit a substantial jackpot. On New Year’s Eve a Maryland man won $3.8 million on a $5 “Wheel of Fortune”® progressive slot machine and just weeks ago Aubrey G. Hart, Jr., a 49 year-old resident of Harrisonburg, VA, walked away with $250,000 after playing for less than 30 minutes. Over the past seven weeks Borgata has given away well over $5 million in slot jackpots.


As for what this lucky winner plans to do with her birthday winnings, she will be paying off her bills and “partying like a rock star.”

“Being born and raised in Philly and going to the shore as a kid, I can honestly say Borgata is by far the finest casino I’ve been to. It’s so gorgeous and everyone is just so nice and friendly. I really have such a great time when I’m here!”
