Betfair Casino pays out record $1.52 million jackpot in New Jersey
23 February 2015
JERSEY CITY, N.J. -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Betfair Casino
, New Jersey's premier destination for real-money casino gaming online, announced today that a patron from Union County, New Jersey is the recipient of the largest single payout in N.J. regulated online gaming history.
The winning payout was on Let It Ride - a popular variant of traditional poker with a top prize of 1,000-to-1 for a Royal Flush
and also featuring an extra side bet
called 3 Card Bonus that gives players another chance to hit it big.
Early on February 14, the BetfairCasino.com patron put down
$500 for each of his three initial bets, as well as the 3 Card Bonus, and cashed in when a Royal Flush
was dealt in diamonds. Since he Let It Ride and played the 3 Card Bonus bet, he earned a 1,000-to-1 payout on each of his three $500 initial bets and an additional 40-to-1 on his $500 3 Card Bonus bet for a Straight Flush
- yielding a total payout of $1,522,000.
His winnings represent the record for the largest single payout in N.J. regulated online gaming history since the industry's launch in late 2013.
"I first heard of BetfairCasino.com on a television commercial where they were offering a generous bonus for first time sign ups," said the winning patron, who chose not to reveal his identity. "I was playing one night for about two hours . . . and I was ready to end my night of play and I was dealt Queen, Jack, and 10 of Diamonds. Great! I have a mini straight flush! To my amazement I was dealt the King and Ace of Diamonds! A Royal Flush! Really! I was in total shock! Not my first royal either and yes, still in shock! Then I realized it was a $1,522,000 payout! NOW I WAS IN SHOCK! I thought it was a dream! This is why I love playing and will only be playing on BetfairCasino.com because the site lets you play and in turn gives you a fair chance to win!"
"It's always exciting when a player hits a big win," said BetfairCasino.com GM Don Ryan. "We're thrilled to be a part of U.S. online gaming history and to be able to provide generous bonuses, high payouts, and a secure and fair online gaming experience to our BetfairCasino.com players in New Jersey for years to come."
