Online gambling has only been in operation in the state of Pennsylvania for a few weeks and already crazy stories are emerging regarding big wins. Players have been waiting since late 2017 to have access to online casino games and they are logging in consistently now to take advantage of the three gaming options currently in operation. Surprisingly, a story has emerged of a female player who has hit a progressive jackpot not once, but twice in a five-day time frame! This game is sure to heat up even more as it has been hit a total of five times since mid-July.
Divine Fortune is an online progressive slot game that has five reels and three rows with 20 fixed paylines. The game has three different jackpots and is available at PlaySugarHouse as well as the Hollywood and Parx online casinos.
The game was first launched via PlaySugarHouse in Pennsylvania and is enjoyed in New Jersey as well. Players enjoy the slot due to the progressive element as well as additional features like the free spins, wild substitutions and falling wilds re-spins.
The lucky winner that managed to hit the jackpot two times is a player from Lansdale, Pennsylvania. The woman began playing at the SugarHouse online casino around two weeks ago. She played Divine Fortune and won $61,409.77 on September 10th with a bet of just $10. She won her second jackpot this past Tuesday when she bet $10 again and won a little more at $61,216!
It’s crazy to see the online slot game reward so much money so quickly but also to the same person! Mattias Stetz, of Rush Street Interactive, the operator of the site, stated that it is unbelievable and goes to show that anyone can win with any bet at any time. According to Stetz, with the announcement of so many jackpot wins, the site has seen an increase in players who are hoping to have the same luck.
On top of these wins, the game provided a player with $196,209 on September 1st with just a $4 wager. Less than an hour later, the jackpot was hit yet again by another player, this time awarding $57,349 on a $30 wager. On the 5th of September, the game provided a prize of just over $30,000 for a simple $0.40 bet.
The online gambling industry is relatively new in Pennsylvania. There is only a few weeks of recorded revenues and players are just now getting used to having access to table games and slots online. These big wins with the Divine Fortune taking place in September are sure to provide an uptick in traffic as news spreads of the prizes earned.
Players can easily take part in online gambling in the state by signing up for a new player account at the PlaySugarHouse site, Hollywood Casino or Parx Casino NJ. Each site is in the early stages so only offers a small selection of content in the table games and slot categories.
PlaySugarHouse has been the most successful thus far, by way of revenues earned and traffic, but that is to be expected. The brand already has offered services in New Jersey for some time and is well-versed in what players want to see an do online.
It will be interesting to see the September revenue totals next month and if a large impact is made at the site, as well as the other sites, based on the recent big jackpot wins.
