BetMGM, a leading sports betting and digital gaming company, announced today that it has awarded a jackpot of 643,412.32 Canadian dollars to a BetMGM Casino player in Ontario. This is the first major BetMGM jackpot in the province.
“After many years of awarding record jackpot prizes in the States, BetMGM is thrilled to award its first major payout to a player in Ontario,” said Matthew Sunderland, VP of Gaming, BetMGM. “In 2021, BetMGM awarded the largest prize in U.S. online casino history. We’re proud of today’s announcement and look forward to many more years of providing life-changing jackpot prizes to Canadian players.”
The winner, new to BetMGM Casino, won the jackpot prize after a CA$1 on Viking Riches, an exclusive BetMGM game built by Entain’s Win Studios. BetMGM Casino’s other exclusive games, including MGM Grand Millions, Bison Fury, and Mirage Mega Magma, feed what is the largest state-by-state in-house exclusive progressive in the United States.

BetMGM is proud to provide resources to help customers play responsibly including GameSense, an industry-leading program, developed and licensed to MGM Resorts by the British Columbia Lottery Corporation. Through the GameSense integration within BetMGM’s mobile and desktop platforms, customers can directly access responsible gaming tools.
