$3M Jackpot Won at Atlantic City’s Trump Taj Mahal

Last weekend was certainly an exciting way to start out the first week of 2016 for one Trump Taj Mahal casino player who hit a $3,084,922.63 jackpot in Atlantic City. The win marks the biggest one in the gambling mecca for over years.

The PressofAtlanticCity.com, reported the win, which came while the unidentified player, who wanted her identity kept private, was seated at the Wheel of Fortune city-wide progressive machine betting $4 per spin.

“It’s a beautiful thing,” said Charlie Rando, Taj's vice-president of casino operations.

Despite the completion of bankruptcy restructuring, Rando said, “The Taj is open for business and we’re a lucky casino.”

The Slot is a popular progressive from IGT and links across all the casinos in Atlantic City causing it to reach exciting levels.

The January 2nd jackpot comes second to one $3.8 million win bagged by a Borgata player on the Wheel of Fortune machine in 2012.

The verification of the win went smoothly as the state Division of Gaming Enforcement verified that the machine was accurate and functioning properly when the win occurred, according an agency spokesperson, Kerry Langan.

Last year was a slow one for Atlantic City as there was one jackpot in the million dollar range, a $1.5 M jackpot won by an online player at Betfaircasino.com.

2013 and 2014 saw jackpots ranging from $1 million to $2.6 million.

    What a nice way to start the new year. Trump Tan Mahal casino might have to file another bankruptcy if they keep giving out money like this.

    Congratulations to the unidentified player. That is how I'd do it too. Over 3 million dollars, it's just too much to advertise about. I am also happy hearing about the online winners, gives me hope that the USA is finally coming around about online gambling. I live in the South, in Georgia and lately, they talk a lot about opening four casinos in the state, starting with Atlanta. I hope that soon after, online gambling will follow.......

    Well that is some lucky player! Although I couldn't afford to bet as much as 4$ per spin, it is amazing that for this guy it paid off. Can't really imagine his reaction after seeing he had won so much because this jackpot will completely change his and his family's life. Congratulations and I wish that we all some day would be jackpot winners :)
