BetMGM, the online sportsbook and iGaming platform for MGM Resorts International, is reporting a $1 million progressive jackpot winner from Michigan, where the company’s iCasino boasts over 2,700 casino gaming options and remains a huge player in the broader iCasino industry. It's no wonder such a large-scale provider is one of our best sports betting sites.

The Michigan online casino scene news is just one of two major payouts the company has reported from one of its real money online casino platforms. Another recently came from the Pennsylvania online casino scene.

MGM Resorts’ iGaming platforms are legal and a big part of the legal online gambling scene in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and the West Virginia online casino scene. It's considering expanding to other states, possibly this year.

A press release by the company acknowledged the recent payouts, saying in part, "BetMGM congratulates the recent winners at Borgata Online and BetMGM on their big jackpots. We love making moments like this even more memorable through our new jackpot program.”

The Michigan winner

Late last week, it was reported that an unidentified online slots player from Southfield, Mich., logged on to the BetMGM iCasino and hit it big on the company’s exclusive slots game Bison Fury, a five-reel wilderness-themed slot with over 1,000 ways to win. The whopping $1 million Jackpot win came sometime in April. Games like that are what make BetMGM one of our best mobile casino apps.

The player, who chooses to remain anonymous, wagered just 40 cents to earn the $1 million payout and apparently has vowed to use the cash windfall to buy a new house. You can try your luck using our BetMGM Casino bonus code.

How about one from Pittsburgh?

Along with the big winner in the Michigan market, MGM Resorts is also reporting another huge online casino payout, this time to a gambler in Pittsburgh.

The unidentified winner logged on to MGM Resorts’ subsidiary Borgata Online Casino and played the MGM Grand Millions Megaways slots, another exclusive five-reel offering from the MGM Resorts online casino brand. It boasts 243 ways to win.

In this case, the winner won a $525,726 jackpot. No wonder BetMGM is one of our best online slots.

BetMGM online casinos continue to pay out

The BetMGM online casino brands are popular destinations for those in jurisdictions with legal iCasinos. In Michigan, the betting brand is the #2 iCasino in the state after being the #1 Great Lakes State gambling site for over three years.

The company's data shows it paid out more than $138 million in progressive jackpots in the American market alone in 2023. This is a 32% year-over-year increase in payouts by the iCasino brand. Bison Fury and MGM Grand Million Megaways slots are responsible for over half of the payouts by the MGM Resorts iCasino offerings.

Both Bison Fury and MGM Grand Millions Megaways are in-house slots options created by Entain, an MGM Resorts key iGaming partner and one of the biggest gaming software producers in the world.
