arly on February 14, the BetfairCasino.com patron put down US$ 500 for each of his three initial bets, as well as the 3-Card Bonus, and cashed in when a Royal Flush was dealt in diamonds. Since he 'Let It Ride' and played the 3 Card Bonus bet, he earned a 1,000-to-1 payout on each of his three US$ 500 initial bets and an additional 40-to-1 on his $500 3 Card Bonus bet for a Straight Flush – yielding a total payout of US$ 1,522,000.
His winnings represent the record for the largest single payout in N.J. regulated online gaming history since the industry's launch in late 2013.
"I first heard of BetfairCasino.com on a television commercial where they were offering a generous bonus for first time sign ups," said the winning patron, who chose not to reveal his identity. "I was playing one night for about two hours . . . and I was ready to end my night of play, until I was dealt Queen, Jack, and 10 of Diamonds. Great! I had a mini straight flush! To my amazement I was dealt the King and Ace of Diamonds! A Royal Flush! Really! I was in total shock! Not my first royal either but yes, still in shock! I then realized it was a US$ 1,522,000 payout! I thought it was a dream! This is why I love playing and will only be playing on BetfairCasino.com because the site lets you play and in turn gives you a fair chance to win!"

"We're thrilled to be a part of U.S. online gaming history and to be able to provide generous bonuses, high payouts, and a secure and fair online gaming experience to our BetfairCasino.com players in New Jersey for years to come."
