Lightning has struck for the third time in less than two weeks at an Atlantic City casino.

An Ocean County man won a slot jackpot of nearly $5 million Thursday night playing a penny slot machine at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. The payout came less than two weeks after a pair of gamblers took home more than $4 million from two separate slot jackpots.

None of the winners would publicly identify themselves or speak with reporters.

All three jackpots were won on progressive slot machines, which link slot players from many of Atlantic City's 11 casinos and form a communal jackpot pool.

The two largest jackpots both came from penny slot machines.
