It was quite the Christmas bonus.
One online casino player in Pennsylvania was spinning a Halloween Jack slot game on December 16 at Hollywood Online Casino. The game is considered NetEnt‘s spookiest slot, with free spins and features that include something called the Expanding Death Reaper Wild.
And for a player named Randy, the scary slot brought the most pleasant dreams. When one of his spins stopped, Halloween Jack produced a jackpot of $537,000.
“This has been our biggest jackpot win so far,” Rich Criado, general manager of iCasino for Penn National Gaming, said in a news release.
“We’re thrilled that this player was able to go into the holiday season and 2021 with more than half a million dollars in the bank!”
Halloween Jack and many other casino games (including blackjack, Dancing Drums and 88 Fortunes) are available on HollywoodCasino.com on desktop and mobile platforms. Randy was playing via Android when the jackpot arrived.
There is also a free-to-play version of Halloween Jack available on Penn National Gaming’s social casino site, mychoice® Casino, which is available in the GooglePlay Store or in the App Store nationwide.
Halloween Jack win is the latest in a series of 2020 jackpots
The calendar year 2020 will live in infamy, but in regard to online jackpots, it was a banner year — especially for Divine Fortune players. Here are some of the highlights:
- In February, a Glenside, PA, resident named Marc won $148,172 on a $2 spin while playing Divine Fortune at PlaySugarHouse.com. That same day, Jeanne, a newly registered player at HollywoodCasino.com, hit a Divine Fortune jackpot for $76,598.13.
- In March, a Lititz man hit a Divine Fortune jackpot while playing online at PlaySugarHouse.com. He hit the jackpot with a $1 bet, winning $278,430.23. And that same week, a Divine Fortune player in New Jersey hit for a similar jackpot of $278,802.58.
- Then, two months later, Divine Fortune paid out a record-breaking jackpot of $533,239. The Audobon, PA, woman was playing on her smartphone at PlaySugarHouse.com when she won the big one.
- And in November, Divine Fortune produced again. An Allentown woman won a jackpot of $443,000 on a $3 bet.
Divine Fortune should produce big payouts in 2021 too
The design of Divine Fortune should continue to reward its players in the new year as well. Unlike some other progressive jackpot slot games, Divine Fortune emphasizes a high return to players (RTP) of 96.8%. The slot’s volatility rating is also considered “medium,” which means it produces more consistent winners.
In addition, based on the rate at which the jackpot consistently climbs, the prized slot is still gaining popularity among online casino players in Pennsylvania.
So as the year 2020 turns to 2021, the excitement provided by Divine Fortune should continue.
There will be more winners. And more jackpots too.
And perhaps some more people like Randy, who hit the big one just in time for the holidays.
