$30,270 Won on 40 Cent Bet While Playing Divine Fortune on PlaySugarHouse.com

Three players have hit the Divine Fortune Jackpot on PlaySugarHouse.com in just four days, making them the first, second, and third ever progressive online jackpots won in Pennsylvania.

At 3:02 AM Thursday, September 5th, a woman from Levittown, Pennsylvania placed a 40 cent bet after playing Divine Fortune on PlaySugarHouse.com for 14 minutes when she won $30,270. A Sugar House Online Casino player since early June, she is now the third person in Pennsylvania history to win an online progressive jackpot and it comes just days after the first and second. On September 1 at 7:30am, a woman from Selinsgrove, PA hit for $196,209 on a $4 bet after only playing Divine Fortune for 17 minutes. Then, just 39 minutes later, a man from Warrington, PA hit for $57,349 on a $30 bet after playing for nearly an hour.

“This just goes to show, you don’t necessarily have to play big to win big,” said Richard Schwartz, President of Rush Street Interactive, the site’s operator. “Divine Fortune is a very hot game right now on PlaySugarHouse.com and it’s easy to see why. This also shows that jackpots can hit at any time and on any type of bet. Since the first and second progressive wins last week, we’ve seen an increase in activity with Divine Fortune on PlaySugarHouse.com and we expect the excitement and interest continue to grow.”

While these Divine Fortune progressive jackpots are making history as the firsts in Pennsylvania, the game is known for having huge payouts in neighboring New Jersey. Divine Fortune is responsible for more mega jackpot payouts than any other progressive slot in the Garden State, with more than $3 million paid out to players there since its release in 2017. The video slot game set in the days of ancient Greece, has hit Mega Jackpots for New Jersey PlaySugarHouse.com players 12 times, paying out more than $1.5 million to players.

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 the first online slots game with a progressive jackpot for Pennsylvania Online Casinos. SugarHouse Online Casino went live in the state on July 17th, offering a fully-integrated experience that seamlessly merges casino games with sports betting.

Red Rake Gaming (Red Rake), a leading online casino games supplier, has entered into their first agreement as games supplier to the social casino industry. Thanks to this deal, Wind Creek Hospitality (WCH), an authority of the Poarch Band of Creek Indians, will have access to the full portfolio of Red Rake Gaming games.

WCH operates several gaming facilities in Alabama, Pennsylvania, Nevada, Aruba and Curacao, and offers online social casino games to its customers. Red Rake’s offering, which consists of slots, video bingo and table games will be available for the WCH social casino customers in the coming weeks.

Nick Barr, Managing Director of Red Rake Malta, commented on the deal: “We are honoured to work alongside Wind Creek in their social casino business. This a significant step for us, because not only is this our first partner in the social casino industry as a B2B entity, but also because it is the foundation of what we expect to be another great regulated market for us in terms of real money. We anticipate a great partnership with Wind Creek for many years to come”

Ron Nesbitt, WCH Vice President of Game Operations, added: “Our social gaming site, WindCreekCasino.com, provides our customers an engaging and interactive experience that has proven to be an excellent retention tool for us over the years.

Tim Wilmott has retired from the American Gaming Association as its chairman. The legalisation and expansion of sports betting has been a key marker of Wilmott’s term.

He told AGA members: “Once PASPA happened everything changed,” referring to a Supreme Court ruling that overturned a ban on sports betting. Since then, 13 states so far have launched legalised sports betting operations in casinos, racetracks and on mobile devices.

Wilmott, CEO of casino company Penn National Gaming, said the industry’s relations with the government had become even more important with the advent of sports betting. A bill seeking federal sports betting control is now in the Senate.

Wilmott said that during his tenure and that of his previous chairman, the profile of AGA membership had changed and it had broadened as a result of work headed by CEO Bill Miller and his predecessor.

He was speaking to members at the conclusion of the 2019 G2E trade show that had attracted 30,000 gaming professionals to Las Vegas.
