New Jersey has been the place to go for online gambling in the US for quite some time. However with 2020’s tumultuous progression, we’re seeing a huge increase in online casinos in the US and across the world. With NJ already primed to take advantage of this search by players for online gambling, it’s no surprise that the state has seen a huge surge in gaming and revenues to boot.


Biggest NJ casino wins in 2020

With more players comes more possibility that someone might win that big prize. With huge jackpots up for grabs when playing slots, table games, and even live casino, here are some of the biggest wins we’ve seen from New Jersey online casinos in 2020.

  • $1 Million dollars from Golden Nugget online casino – one lucky player hit the 25,000x multiplier on their prize and netted the biggest prize possible, from just one spin!
  • Someone playing at Unibet won a whopping $5 Million dollars on a NetEnt slot while playing with Unibet online.
  • There are countless other winners who earned upwards of $100,000 while playing slots at their favourite NJ online casino – winners are lucky but we’re happy to say that they’re not too uncommon!

It's safe to say that although the casinos are getting a lot of money in this time, with the huge boost in player numbers, the players themselves are getting some great wins while they play too.


What do players love?

The revenue for online casinos was astronomical in 2020, which is no surprise given the uptick in online gamblers we’ve seen as a result of the lockdowns, shutdowns, and social distancing. Revenue for casinos is up 124% over last year, which is no small number. The revenue split between slots and other casino games, and poker, is huge however. Players spent $81.4 million on slot games while spending a fraction of that at $4.5M on online poker. The investment in poker games dropped from last year, probably due to the lack of in-person games.


What’s to come?

The online gambling scene in the US, including New Jersey, is always an interesting one. With legislation being proposed, passed, shelved, thrown out, and proposed again, it seems there isn’t a month that goes by without something interesting happening. With suggestions as interesting as blockchain being proposed globally, and with increasing online users making their bets and plays at online casinos, we anticipate further changes in the law and better access to a wide range of games. With the big wins still coming in despite current events, it remains to be seen what the US online gambling world has in store!
