The luck of the Irish struck on St Patrick’s Day as a New Jersey woman hit it big at SugarHouse Online Casino, winning the progressive jackpot on the Divine Fortune slot game. The woman, named Netty, stated that she wanted to keep her last name anonymous after claiming the Divine Fortune Mega Jackpot of $278,802.58 with a $2 bet on Sunday.
The 53-year-old mother of three was at home when she was playing at the New Jersey Sugarhouse Online Casino. She decided to try her luck playing Divine Fortune considering the progressive jackpot was so big. In general, the totals for slots jackpots at New Jersey online casinos have been on the rise in line with the state’s increased gambling revenue of late.
After Netty’s big win she stated, “I was simply elated. I looked at my husband and thought, ‘This just can’t be right. I’ve never won that amount before!’”
Considering what is currently happening around the world, Netty believes her massive progressive jackpot win of more than a quarter of a million dollars could not have come at a better time. She expressed thanks for something positive happening during these tough times.
Mattias Stetz is the COO of Rush Street Interactive, which operates SugarHouse Online Casino. He said of the recent jackpot payout, “It’s always exciting to see our players win life-changing amounts. This jackpot hit made a huge difference in someone’s life during a period that may be difficult for a lot of people.”
According to SugarHouse officials, Divine Fortune has paid out more top-tier jackpots than any other online slot game in New Jersey. The game has now dished up over a million dollars to online players in New Jersey in 2020. It is also featured at PlaySugarHouse.com online casino in Pennsylvania, where 12 players have hit the jackpot since the site launched last summer.
Developed by NetEnt, Divine Fortune has an ancient Greek theme with an abundance of mythical creatures. The online video slot has five reels and three rows of symbols and 20 fixed paylines. There are falling wild re-spins as well as free spins and a unique wild-on-wild feature. There are three jackpots in the Divine Fortune bonus game, one of which is the progressive Mega Jackpot that Netty recently won.
