CHERRY HILL, N.J., Feb. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- A Camden County, New Jersey woman was playing the progressive Mega Jackpot game, Divine Fortune, on PlaySugarHouse.com, over the weekend when she hit the Mega Jackpot for $295,384 on a $4 bet. The jackpot is the highest ever on the site and the second highest for Divine Fortune in New Jersey's online market.
The 45-year-old, who lives in Cherry Hill, asked to remain anonymous while she celebrates her good fortune.
This is the ninth 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 nearly $1,300,000 in mega jackpots on this game alone.
Divine Fortune was only introduced online in NJ in 2017, but is responsible for more mega jackpot payouts than any other progressive slot in the state. The game has paid out well over $3 million to lucky New Jersey online players to date. Most of these jackpots were hit by the winners on their mobile devices.
"We are thrilled to award our highest ever jackpot to this lucky player," said Richard Schwartz, President of Rush Street Interactive, the site's operator. "When a Mega Jackpot hits it's good for us, and the entire online gaming industry, as it shows anyone can easily just pick up their smart phone, make a few bets and change their life forever."
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 500 casino games and live dealer table games that players on PlaySugarHouse.com can choose from that include slots, blackjack, roulette, video poker, and of course sports betting in the popular sportsbook. In August, New Jersey's online casino innovator introduced its world-class sportsbook to the Garden State's residents and visitors. The 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.
