What a better way to celebrate a romantic Valentine’s Day than realizing that you have just won a $1.52 million jackpot? That is what happened a couple weeks ago for one New Jersey man playing Let It Ride at BetFair Casino. The massive online jackpot was the biggest to date in the entire state and word is he won it with a Royal Flush in Diamonds.
Biggest Win in NJ Online Gambling History to Date
iGaming in New Jersey is fast growing in its popularity and this huge payout will definitely bring a lot more interest. The Union County, NJ resident couldn’t be any happier with his record-breaking win, especially since he won it on Let It Ride the poker variant that pays out an amazing 1000 to 1, which is exactly how we won the jackpot.
$1.52 Million Jackpot Win
The New Jersey jackpot winner wagered $500 on each of his three betting rounds, as well as another $500 bonus. When the diamond-studded Royal Flush appeared on his screen, he knew that he was a winner. A bet of $1,500 at 1000-to-1 and 40-to-1 on his $500 bonus bet made the grand total $1,522,000.
Let It Ride at Betfair Casino
Let It Ride has been around for a while and is one of the most popular online poker games in the world. BetFairCasino provides a number of poker games but with this huge win, expect Let it Ride to become their most beloved jackpot poker offering.
The record-breaking win will definitely leave a smaller profit for Golden Nugget and their primary online casino BetFair, but the news that this win has received will most-likely bring in a wide-range of new players. “It’s always exciting when a player hits a big win,” related BetfairCasino’s general manager Don Ryan. The massive jackpot might make their monthly profits shrink but they are still happy to see their players win.

The last time a massive online jackpot was hit in NJ was in November 2014 at Caesars online casino HarrahsCasino. Cathy Ruela from Morris Plains won $1.3 million, while playing Millionaire Genie and until now, she held the state record.
