An Audubon, PA, woman who is 34 years old and wishes to remain anonymous claimed the winning jackpot.
The woman began playing at PlaySugarHouse.com just last month, according to a press release. She was playing at home on her smartphone when she hit the big one.
Divine Fortune synonymous with SugarHouse
The Divine Fortune progressive slot game is only available in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. This is the biggest jackpot to date on both sides of the Delaware River.
And while several online casino sites feature the game, the majority of the hits have come at the SugarHouse site.
Mattias Stetz, COO of Rush Street Interactive, which operates PlaySugarHouse.com., said:
“It is exciting to see history being made in a positive way during these difficult and uncertain times. These huge jackpots are life-changing for our players, especially when good news is needed now more than ever.”
Divine Fortune has a winning history
Previously, the largest Divine Fortune jackpot ever to be hit in the US was $376,893 on a $1 spin on PlaySugarHouse.com in PA.
The game has quite a history.
One man hit twice, once for $151,000 with a $100 bet and once for $235,000 on a $20 bet.
And the game has paid mega jackpots 14 times in PA since it launched in July 2019.
What makes this progressive slot so special?
Divine Fortune is unlike most progressive jackpot slot games, which traditionally have low returns to players (RTP) — meaning they are tight — and high volatility, with higher but less frequent payouts.
In contrast, Divine has a fairly high RTP of 96.8%. And the slot’s volatility rating is “medium,” meaning more consistent winners.
And based on the rate at which the jackpot consistently climbs, the prized slot is only growing in popularity among online casino players in PA.
The jackpot at PlaySugarHouse is now at $148,000 — and climbing.
