One lucky player from New Jersey must have been ecstatic after grabbing a staggering jackpot at an online casino based in neighbouring Pennsylvania.
An unnamed woman took home a jackpot worth $287,945 while playing NetEnt’s Divine Fortune slot at the SugarHouse Online Casino, which opened for business two years ago.
The Largest NJ Jackpot to Date
Although this amount may not be as high as those paid out by some of the most popular progressive jackpots out there (yes, we’re talking about Mega Moolah), it’s still a record-breaking sum when the Garden State is in question.
This is the largest online jackpot won in New Jersey since the state launched online gambling in 2013.
The lucky woman hit the prize on a wager of mere $2, thus becoming the sixth player to grab the Divine Fortune Mega Jackpot, taking home almost $100,000 more than the previous winner who won the jackpot earlier this year.
This has been an excellent year for online gambling in New Jersey, and while wins like these give a boost to the industry, they also encourage more players to wager and try their luck since they show that winning six-figure or seven-figure jackpots is not an impossible feat.
About Divine Fortune
Launched in 2017, Divine Fortune is a progressive jackpot with a 5-reel 3-row layout and a total of 20 paylines.
The game draws its inspiration from the Greek mythology, offering plenty of opportunities to win thanks to its four bonus features.
Available in the main game and Free Spins feature, Falling Wilds Re-Spins and Wild on Wild may result in hefty payouts. The former is triggered when a Wild finds its place on the reels, which will then shift down one position and award a respin. The latter will see the Wild expand over the entire reel, shifting each Wild one place vertically. Of course, a respin is awarded.
Three or more free spins symbols trigger the Free Spins feature, awarding from 5 to 12 spins depending on the number of free spins icons landed.
The Jackpot Bonus is activated when 3 or more bonus gold coin symbols are collected, while each of them can award wins between 10 and 200 times the triggering bet.
