Here’s one of the worst kept secrets on the casino floor at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa—Penny slots can hit big.
This Sunday (July 13), a Pheonixville Pa. woman (who wishes to remain anonymous) was playing the penny slot Wizard Of OZ – Haunted Forest (Reel Adventure) when she hit the big jackpot.
How big? Try $290,260.06.
Yes, on a penny slot.
One of two Wizard of Oz themed slots from WMS games, the newly configured slot machine allows you to control the game by choosing symbols to award yourself credits or advance up the screen and features new wheel-based bonuses and Winged Monkey features will make this game one of your new favorites.
Anyone who is an aficionado of progressive slot machines and their jackpots knows one simple truth—the more players playing on the machines, the bigger the progressive jackpot.
How many times have you been playing a progressive slot machine at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa and you’ve thought to yourself, “If only we had some players from Deadwood South Dakota playing these slots, then these jackpots would get really serious?”
Well, the time has come.
In a first of its kind hook-up between states, Borgata has introduced “Powerbucks” from IGT games—a progressive slots jackpot that links multiple gambling jurisdictions (in this case the states of New Jersey and South Dakota) playing for a common jackpot.
