CHERRY HILL, N.J., Aug. 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- An Ocean County, New Jersey Grandmom was drinking her morning coffee when she decided to do a little gambling at her home desktop. 60-year-old Donna B (who asked that we not use her last name) started playing the progressive Mega Jackpot game, Divine Fortune, on playsugarhouse.com, and in the middle of her cup of coffee she hit the Mega Jackpot for $123,496 on a $10 bet.
"I was in total disbelief when I hit," the Lanoka Harbor woman said. "I ran into the other room and woke my granddaughter, who was sleeping over for the first time, and told her she was my lucky charm!"
This is the seventh time Divine Fortune, a video slot game set in the days of ancient Greece, has hit Mega Jackpots for playsugarhouse.com players since SugarHouse Online Sportsbook & Casino entered the iGaming market in NJ in September 2016. Altogether playsugarhouse.com has paid out over $800,000 in mega jackpots on this game alone in less than a year.
"It's incredibly exciting to have another mega jackpot winner this month," said Richard Schwartz, President of Rush Street Interactive, the site's operator. "As we approach our 2 year anniversary, having seven Mega Jackpot winners is great for us and for the entire online gaming industry. It continues to prove that anyone, anytime and anyplace can go online and win these life-altering amounts of money."
The mother of two said her adult children are still in shock: "I had to take a picture of the screen to prove it to them," said the lucky winner. "This win will secure my future and take away all my financial burdens."
Divine Fortune is a 5-reel, 3-row, 20-line (fixed) video slot game with 3 different jackpots including the progressive Mega Jackpot. It's one of the more than 450 casino games and live dealer table games players on playsugarhouse.com can choose from that include slots, blackjack, roulette, video poker, and virtual sports betting. Just last week, New Jersey's online casino innovator introduced its world-class sportsbook to the Garden State's residents and visitors. The new SugarHouse Online Sportsbook & Casino features a wide variety of bets, competitive odds and a ground-breaking loyalty program that seamlessly merges casino games with sports betting.
