New Jersey Woman Lands $1.6 Million Jackpot

New Jersey Woman Lands $1.6 Million Jackpot

Las Vegas is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the casino industry in the United States. But Atlantic City is another city that’s important to the industry as it has lots of casinos.

Recently, Harrah’s Resort & Casino in Atlantic City got another jackpot winner. A New Jersey woman managed to hit a jackpot of $1.6 million. She was playing a poker game at the casino with a side bet linked to a progressive jackpot and she managed to land it. But she also left a hefty tip for the dealers.

Atlantic City Casino Gets New Jackpot Winner

Progressive jackpots are pretty hard to land and despite that people still go for them. Usually, they’re linked to various slot machines at multiple casinos throughout the state or country. There’s one prize pool and all the players playing the casino game contribute a percentage of their bet amount to that prize pool.

The thing that makes players attracted to such a jackpot is the fact that there’s no telling how high it can get. It can range in the thousands or the millions. There’s also no telling when the jackpot will land which is why players go for it. There’s a certain exciting atmosphere that comes with a progressive jackpot which is another reason why people go for it.

The New Jersey woman also got in on that kind of excitement which is why she decided to go for a poker game that’s linked to a progressive jackpot. She decided on playing the game and decided to put $5 on the side bet. The next hand of cards turned out to be a royal flush and she had landed the jackpot. When she saw the size of the prize she was flabbergasted.

The woman was a recipient of a $1.6 million jackpot prize that came from a progressive pool. She was congratulated by the dealers and other players and she went to get her prize. Also, she decided to remain anonymous as a precaution.

Once she got her prize, she went back to the table and left a $77,000 tip for all the dealers at the time. She stated that it was the dealer that handed her the card that led to the jackpot which is why the dealer deserved the tip. Her dealer split the tip with the rest of the dealers.

The NJ woman is now another jackpot winner of Harrah’s Resort & Casino in Atlantic City. She’s a lucky winner of a progressive jackpot and she left a mark on the Atlantic City casino by leaving a huge tip for all the dealers at the time which is something that not everyone does.

Conclusion

The NJ woman played some poker in the Atlantic City casino and decided on a side bet. The right cards came at the right time and she qualified for the progressive jackpot. This is how she managed to win the $1.6 million jackpot with a simple bet of $5.
