PA casinos delivered several jackpots worth over $100,000 in August.

Several people visiting Pennsylvania casinos won life-changing amounts of money during the month of August. Some casinos reported players winning six-figure jackpots, which can certainly change the energy on the gaming floor.

As the unofficial last month of summer has come to an end, a few PA casino players are heading into the fall with some extra cash. (And this isn’t even counting the many top PA online casino jackpots cashed in August, as well.)

Live! Casino Philadelphia awards multiple jackpots over $100,000

Live! Casino Philadelphia got off to a hot start, when Ansaly T. of South Jersey won $97,402 on a Prosperity Link slot machine with just a $1.76 spin on Aug. 4. The excitement continued the next day, when a player hit for $139,181 after playing the Lightning Link Sahara Gold slot.

On Aug. 28, two guests won six-figure jackpots, as well:

  • $126,148 on Crystal Star Deluxe
  • $103,964 on Lightning Link High Stakes

Janine de Blois, Director of Slots & Guest Services at Live! Casino Philadelphia, told PlayPennsylvania:

“The excitement continued throughout the month with three guests winning six figure jackpots—two on the same day. We’re looking forward to another month of guests getting Lucky at Live! as we continue Giant Jackpots, our mystery floor-wide slot progressive and kick-start new promotions including our $300,000 Football Pick ‘Em Challenge where guests can win a share of the $300,000 worth of prizes throughout the season.”

Live! Casino Philadelphia also reported two large poker winners worth north of $69,000 on Aug. 27.

With football back, September is expected to be another big month for the South Philadelphia casino. Live! Casino Philadelphia is offering generous promotions for football season.

Live! Casino Pittsburgh hands out championship rings for jackpot winners

Players who hit for a jackpot of more than $50,000 and agree to have a photo taken walk away from Live! Casino Pittsburgh with some hardware.

On Aug. 26, Brian M. made a $5 bet on the Lightning Cash slot and cashed for $56,353.25. Because Brian took a photo with the Live! staff, he was also awarded a beautiful championship ring. Live! Casino Pittsburgh offers a separate gold ring that goes to the Giant Jackpots winner based on the promotion with both Live! locations.

The largest winner of the month earned $80,000 on a $10 bet playing Triple Double Diamond.

Other winners at Live! Casino Pittsburgh included:

  • $64,230.43 on Buffalo Cash slot
  • $55,087.26 on Lightning Cash slot
