BetMGM awarded $138.2 million in 2023 progressive jackpot slots, the most it’s ever handed out. Two players from Pennsylvania cashed jackpots of more than $1 million in 2023, along with several other notable wins from the state.

The operator is known for its generous jackpots, as the $138.2 million in prizes is a 32% year-over-year increase.

Let’s take a closer look at the sizable Pennsylvania payouts this year from BetMGM.

The PA online casino market has been thriving of late, which gives operators a chance to give back some larger jackpots to players.

BetMGM Casino PA told PlayPennsylvania the top jackpot winners of 2023, with two of them crossing the $1 million threshold. Each winner received life-changing amounts of money. They are as follows:

Oliver Bartlett, Vice-President of Gaming Product & Content for BetMGM, said in a press release:

“BetMGM’s library of games is highlighted by our progressive jackpots, a compelling mix of titles created by Entain and that we source from the industry’s top vendors. Jackpots will remain a key focus of our overall strategy in 2024 and beyond.”

In partnership with Hollywood Penn National, BetMGM, along with DraftKings Casino PA, Hollywood Casino PA and Fanatics Casino PA, produced $76.8 million last December and $855.4 million in total 2023 revenue.

BetMGM awards Keystone State players $34.6 million in casino jackpots

Despite Pennsylvania being the most robust online casino market in the country, the Keystone State fell behind New Jersey and Michigan in terms of jackpot money. Here’s how the distribution of BetMGM jackpots shook out:

  • Michigan: $53.2 million
  • New Jersey: $38.8 million
  • Pennsylvania: $34.6 million
  • Ontario: $6.1 million
  • West Virginia: $5.4 million

No Pennsylvania player finished in the top 5 jackpots earned by BetMGM players across the US. Each winner is either from New Jersey or Michigan:

BetMGM credits in-house games for online casino success

Exclusive PA slots only available to BetMGM and games created in-house accounted for more than half of the prize total last year. MGM Grand Millions and Bison Fury would qualify as such games.

Those options, along with others, are what makes BetMGM’s slot library incredibly unique. BetMGM’s VP of Gaming, Angus Nisbet, spoke about the importance of exclusive games back in June. He reiterated his stance in the press release:

“BetMGM loves creating memorable iGaming experiences for players and few things surpass the thrill of winning a jackpot. The performance of our exclusive, in-house-produced games shows these titles are resonating with players and solidifies BetMGM as the destination for progressive jackpots.”

BetMGM has now branched out into releasing other popular titles, which include:

  • Buffalo Wild Wings
  • The Godfather
  • Buffalo

Each of these titles involves known brands and has been hugely popular over the course of time. Buffalo, a well-known retail slot, has already been tabbed the most popular slot in the market since launching last September.

BetMGM, along with its customers, should see continued success all the way around in 2024.
