The North Jersey resident’s wager paid off a thousand-fold.
According to Zubritzky, who has only been playing on the website for “a few weeks,” it took a little time for him to realize he did indeed hit a major jackpot.
“I truly didn’t think it was real,” he told Borgata Blog. “I was sitting at home watching wrestling on TV, waiting for my son to get home. I wasn’t even paying attention. So, when I won, it didn’t even register at first.
“Then, I took a picture of the win and sent it to a friend who plays online. I asked him, ‘Is this for real?’ and he said it was. It was seriously like, ‘Are you kidding me?’
“Even when I was at Borgata getting the payout, it still didn’t seem real when I was counting it. But it’s real. It’s in my bank account.”
