$3.8 million dollar jackpot won at the Borgata Hotel & Casino Atlantic City

A $3.8 million dollar jackpot won at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City has sure made for a great year for someone.

The unidentified man is from Maryland and was visiting Atlantic City, presumably for the holiday weekend.

He was playing a $5 progressive machine late Sunday, 12-30-12, when he won big.

The total amount of the jackpot won at the Borgata is $3,843,951 making the lucky man from Maryland an instant millionaire.

Tim Burke, the Director of Slot Operations at the Borgata said, according to Atlantic City Central,

What a perfect way to ring in the New Year for one of our lucky Borgata customers.

The 3.8 million dollar jackpot won at the Borgata was one of the largest in the casino’s nine-year history.

The winner is asking that his personal information is not released to the public.

According to unverified web postings made by people who were in the Borgata when the Jackpot was won, the winner appeared to be in his 70’s and was in the casino with his wife.

Many people that win very large jackpots like to keep their information private and if you think about it, it is fully understandable.

Just like lottery winners, winners of major jackpots often find themselves the target of unwanted attention.

It seems that once they know you’ve hit it big, people are lining up with their hands out and many of those people are complete strangers to the victims.

It can be a security risk too when your information is made public so that’s why so many try to keep it under wraps.

Of course, the casinos enjoy publicizing the lucky winner’s name when they can, to give a face to the win, however for marketing purposes just knowing that a multi-million dollar jackpot has been hit, is often enough.
