Mitchell’s life became a whole lot different walking out of Live! Casino Philadelphia than it was walking in.

The Narberth native bought into an Ultimate Texas Hold ‘Em game for $300, and then magic ensued. Mitchell was dealt a royal flush to win nearly $1 million.

He risked it all, going all-in on the final bet. Mitchell now has life-changing money at his disposal after breaking a record in Live! Casino Philadelphia’s short existence.

BetMGM online casino jackpot winner earns $1 million

The latest large jackpot winner came in April, when a BetMGM Casino player won $1 million on a $1 slot bet.

The player won the jackpot playing an exclusive MGM Grand Millions slot title, a game that is only available on BetMGM platforms.

The winning player donated a portion of the earnings to St. Jude’s and Shriners Hospitals for Children. Though $1 million is a large price to pay, BetMGM expressed happiness for the winning player, which ultimately drives more casino gaming.

BetMGM Director of VIP Casino, Alex Limesand, said in a statement:

“BetMGM congratulates the Pennsylvania player and commend them on their contributions to St. Jude and Shriners. We look forward to continuing to set the standard for online casino excellence and to awarding customers mega jackpot prizes.”

BetMGM awarded more than $100 million in jackpot prizes in 2022.
