November was indicative of the many choices that Pennsylvania players have.
The state’s first mini-casino, Live! Casino Pittsburgh, opened on Nov. 24.
There were hints that BetMGM was on its way to PA, and on Dec. 1, it soft-launched its online casino.
Throughout November, there were jackpot winners at the state’s 12 brick-and-mortar casinos. Also, the popular online slot Divine Fortune smiled on another winner.
Here are some of the lucky players and more about PA’s newest online casino.

PA Online Casino note: The following is not a complete list of winners from the month of November.
BetRivers Divine Fortune winner
A restaurant worker who has been unemployed since April due to COVID-19 closures had a late-night stroke of luck in November.
Lynn, from Allentown, PA, was playing Divine Fortune at BetRivers online casino on her phone. Her husband, next to her on the sofa, was watching late-night TV.
She hit the jackpot for $443,480.64 on a $3 bet.
Her husband didn’t believe her until she showed him the screen; then he screamed louder than her.
In a press release from Rush Street Interactive, which operates BetRivers, Lynn said:
“We were both in shock. This is just insane, and the money couldn’t come at a better time. It’s going to be a great Christmas!”
With the jackpot winnings, she plans to pay off her house, car and other debts.
