As temperatures dropped, January jackpots raised the spirits of a number of lucky Pennsylvanians.
All casinos in Pennsylvania reopened on January 4 after closing for a few weeks in December to slow the spread of coronavirus. A new year brought a new casino to Pennsylvania. Live! Casino Philadelphia opened for preview days ahead of its official Feb. 4 grand opening. With the slots turned on and the games “live,” the casino handed out its first jackpots.
Whether casinos were closed or if players didn’t feel like braving the cold, many found big wins at PA online casinos, which are always “open.” In December, a player at Hollywood Online Casino won $537,000, the biggest jackpot win ever on the site.
Here are some players who started off 2021 with jackpot wins.
This is not a complete list of jackpots.
