No Cruel Summer for These Big Winners at Pennsylvania Casinos

Posted on August 4, 2020 - Last Updated on August 27, 2020

All 12 of Pennsylvania’s brick-and-mortar casinos are now open. They are operating at half capacity and adhering to COVID-19 safety protocols from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board. Each property can choose to take even more precautions.

Keep in mind that smoking, eating and drinking are temporarily not permitted on the gaming floor.

With casinos welcoming back guests, there were a number of big winners in July. This summer in Pennsylvania has been sizzlin’. Some residents of the commonwealth have had an especially hot hand.

You don’t have to even leave your home to be a winner in PA. There are 10 online casinos in Pennsylvania with slots, table games and sign-up bonuses.

BetRivers winners

Some July winners at BetRivers:

  • A $1 bet won $81,144.96 on Divine Fortune.
  • A $2.25 bet won $27,052.60 on Konami Lion Festival.
  • A $2 bet won $8,124 on Wild Streak’s Dragon Power.

Valley Forge Casino winners

Jonathan F. won a $785,427.36 jackpot playing the Super 4 Progressive Blackjack side bet at Valley Forge Casino Resort.

The huge win happened on the evening of July 9, just a few days after the casino reopened. The Super 4 Progressive side bet wager wins when the dealer has a blackjack and the combination of the dealer’s blackjack and the player’s two cards qualifies for the 100% progressive bonus.

Additionally, any player who places a wager on the Super 4 receives an Envy Bonus payout when another player at the table is the winner of the 100% bonus.

“We’re thrilled for Jonathan and his exciting win,” said David Zerfing, general manager of Valley Forge Casino Resort. “This is one of Valley Forge Casino Resort’s biggest payouts and, with guests continuing to safely return to the casino, we look forward to more memorable wins.”
