While the land-based Atlantic City casinos are still closed due to the coronavirus, New Jersey’s online casinos are still open. So far in 2020 there have been some huge online slots jackpots paid out, and the two biggest ones have come on the same game: Divine Fortune.
The biggest jackpot so far went to a New Jersey resident by the name of Netty, who won $278,802 with a $2 bet on Divine Fortune at SugarHouse Online Casino. The second-largest online jackpot win for 2020 was a $230,552 haul by the recently furloughed Gary M, who struck gold with a $5 wager at Hard Rock Online Casino.
Divine Fortune’s progressive jackpot has paid out huge sums since the game was launched in 2017. Not only has it paid out the top two wins at New Jersey online casinos this year, but in 2018 and 2019 the game dished up two jackpots of more than $305,000 at the Betfair and Golden Nugget casino sites.
The top jackpot paid out in 2020 for Netty ranks fourth among the all-time highest payouts for Divine Fortune at NJ online casinos. Overall, the game has delivered more big wins than any other online progressive jackpot slot available in New Jersey.
That record of big payouts is the main reason for Divine Fortune’s popularity among New Jersey slots players. There are three jackpot prizes in the game, the largest of which is the progressive Mega Jackpot.
In order to activate a jackpot, a player has to accumulate three Gold Coins and thus activate the Gold Spin round. Once in this round, a player can receive additional Gold Coins from free spins. A player will begin the bonus round with three free spins and if more coins show up in those spins, the player is awarded three more spins. In the free spins, the player can win one of the three jackpots by:
• Spinning a full row of coins (Minor Jackpot)
• Spinning two full rows of coins (Major Jackpot)
• Spinning three full rows of coins (Mega Jackpot)
Besides triggering one of the three jackpots available in the Divine Fortune online slot, each Gold Coin also delivers random wins of up to 200x the original bet level.
