A woman from New Jersey won almost $288,000 from the Divine Fortune slot game at the SugarHouse Online Casino in early August, while taking part in a conference call.
The woman, who requested to remain anonymous, is from Mantua, a small city located in South New Jersey. She started her game with a $2 bet.
Her prize was a $287,945 payout, which represents the largest online slot jackpot that was ever offered in the state. At the same time, her win was the largest one in New Jersey since 2016, when Philadelphia’s SugarHouse Casino appeared in the online gambling market in New Jersey.
Richard Schwartz even declared: “Hitting this record-breaking jackpot is great for us and for the entire online gaming industry, as it proves people can win life-changing amounts online at anytime and anyplace”. Richard Schwartz is the President of Rush Street Interactive, the online casino’s operator.
After winning the prize, the woman posted on the online casino’s chat room, saying that she “was actually on a work conference call and almost screamed out loud”. A release from Rush Street Interactive claimed that the woman has been playing the casino’s online games since January, 2018.
Since 2016, when the casino was launched, a total of 6 players have won the Mega Jackpot of the five-reel Divine Fortune game.
Other winners of the Diving Fortune online slot game
Before the woman won nearly $288,000, a $193,737 prize was offered to Anibal Lopes, a 33-year-old man from Woodbridge, in March, 2018. Mr. Lopes works as a superintendent for a construction company. A press release from Rush Street Interactive says that he ended up with such a prize as the progressive Mega Jackpot had been building since it was previously won 6 months before, in September, 2017.
Mr. Lopes couldn’t believe that he won such a great amount of money. He told his wife that he didn’t feel well and that his legs were shaking. After she said that they need to get him to the emergency room, he told her that he is not sick, but just won almost $194,000.
The other 4 winners of the Mega Jackpot ended up with $13,950 in May, 2017, $61,266 in April, 2018, $91,680 and $46,096, both in September, 201, after playing the online slot game.
Richard Schwartz said: “We love offering our players exciting games that provide real opportunities for significant winnings”.
Apart from Divine Fortune, the online casino has over 400 games available.
