A record payout for the aptly named Divine Fortune progressive online slot jackpot hit this week on a mere $1 wager.
The life-changing payout of $376,893 came on the evening of Oct. 22 for a Pennsylvania woman wagering for just 20 minutes at PlaySugarHouse.com.
The record jackpot continues an amazing series of payouts for the slot title on SugarHouse’s online casino sites in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
SugarHouse and Divine Fortune are on payout streaks
Divine Fortune is not a title exclusive to SugarHouse, but the winning action has certainly centered on its online casino sites in each state
The Divine Fortune Jackpot on PA’s PlaySugarHouse.com has now hit six times in less than two months. A 40-cent bet in early September hit for over $30,000. And just four days before that Divine Fortune hit for nearly $200,000 on a $4 bet.
Just this past Monday, a New Jersey cancer survivor hit the Divine Fortune jackpot for the third time in less than six months on NJ’s PlaySugarHouse site, winning around $140,000. Her combined jackpots tally nearly $300,000.
In New Jersey, Divine Fortune has paid out more than $3 million since its inception in 2017.
New winner donating to a cancer charity to honor her grandson
The most recent jackpot winner, a 62-year-old Canton, PA resident, who asked to only be identified as Cathy, had exhausted most of her life savings on medical treatments for her cancer-stricken grandson.
Despite that, the eight-year-old child died two years ago.
Cathy said playing online is a distraction and stress reliever for her, and she doesn’t bet large amounts.
We spent every dime we had and would’ve spent more if we had it. I was blown away. I started screaming and ran and got my husband and just kept pointing at the computer screen saying, ‘Look! Look! I won! That’s real money!
“You play these games and you think no one really ever wins, but they do. I just can’t believe it was me. I think my grandson was on my shoulder while I was playing.”
She said in memory of her grandson, she plans to donate a portion of the winnings to a cancer charity.
Cathy also said the money is a godsend and most will go towards paying bills and doing home improvements postponed while they helped care for their sick grandson.
Heavy player interest due to repeat jackpots
Mattias Stetz, C.O.O. of Rush Street Interactive, the site’s operator, said:
The fact that the largest jackpot in Divine Fortune history was won on only a $1 bet, is just incredible. Having jackpots hit in Pennsylvania and New Jersey just a day apart has really increased interest, with our players hoping to be the next lucky winner.
PlaySugarHouse went live in PA on July 15. Divine Fortune was the first online progressive slot in the state.
The company NetEnt developed the title.
The game has three different jackpots, including the progressive Mega Jackpot.
And the title features:
- Wild substitutions
