NJ Casinos Paid Out More Jackpots This Year

Only a brand’s resurgence like Atlantic City can justify its buzz at the moment. For the record, it offers more than a booming Boardwalk.

According to the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement’s (DGE) monthly jackpot report, its an indicator of its consistency.

The earning opportunities this year at Atlantic City Casinos have improved immeasurably compared to 2017, let alone throughout its 3 years of existence. The first 8 months of 2018 being remarkable of all time for payouts through jackpots.

The Best Casino Jackpots in New Jersey

As from Aug. 15, 2018, it couldn’t have been a great time to be a casino gambler, since online jackpots and slots payouts tallied up to $22 million.

When observing the trajectory especially in 2016, we cannot help but notice the gradual increase worth of jackpots amounting to $21.9 million that reached casino player’s pockets. Whereas the AC casinos paid out a million dollar less in 2015.

Meanwhile, approximately $3 million in jackpots got paid out to the resort’s nine casino properties for their 30-day period ending on Aug. 15.

Previously, the state regulators collected and released data using jackpot prizes of $75,000 or more. Currently, in 2018, it reported on prizes of $50,000 or more.

Harrah’s online casino made their significant mark by signing off the second-largest check of this year so far going at a whopping $687,785, earned by a player who ventured on the Gods of the Gold virtual slot machine.

It also should be acknowledged that out of 224 total jackpots of $50,000 or more, NJ online casinos awarded 55 of them.

Naturally, Golden Nugget as a famously leading online casino dominantly bestowed most online jackpots of $50,000 or more with 17. Betfair NJ online casino and Sugarhouse playing its partner role, logged for another 20, with 12 and 8 respectively.

Jackpots are mainly paid out by:
