Rush Street Interactive announced that a woman from Cumberland County, NJ hit the IGT MegaJackpot at BetRivers.com. The 33-year-old woman hit the jackpot with a $0.60 bet, winning $662,000 while playing at home on her mobile phone.
The winner, who asked to remain anonymous, was putting her daughter to bed when she hit the jackpot. She didn’t realize at first that she won, and contacted BetRivers support to confirm. She was shocked when she found out she really was the winner of the MegaJackpot. She told her fiancé who still did not believe it until he saw the money in her account.
“I didn’t think I would ever win so much, especially since it was only a $0.60 bet. I couldn’t believe it,” she said.
When asked what she planned to do with the winnings, the working mother who is a consultant in the real estate industry expressed that she was using the money to pay off debt, give her kids a good holiday season, and then invest the rest.
“This is the first year I don’t feel stressed about the holidays. And now I also feel like I’m secure in my future, so I don’t have to worry about that either,” she said.
She has been playing online casino games with BetRivers for just over six years, and always makes small bets. This jackpot win shows that a little amount of money can go a long way.
“We love when our players win life-changing jackpots. This is one of many jackpot wins we’ve had which proves our players can win big, even when placing small bets,” said Mattias Stetz, COO of RSI, which operates BetRivers.com.
