PA Woman Turns $1 Into Record-Setting $377K Divine Fortune Jackpot

Posted on October 23, 2019 - Last Updated on January 22, 2020

Last night, fortune smiled upon a Pennsylvania woman named Cathy, who hit the largest Divine Fortune Jackpot ever awarded in the United States. Cathy, who withheld her last name, only bet $1 at the PA online casino PlaySugarHouse.com. As a matter of fact, she played for less than 20 minutes before garnering her astounding prize of $376,893 at 7:41 pm.

PA woman’s $1 bet became $377K

Chief Operating Officer of Rush Street Interactive Mattias Stetz explains that anyone placing any bet amount can win: 

“We’ve said it before, but this really shows that anyone can win with any bet size. The fact that the largest jackpot in Divine Fortune history was won on only a $1 bet, is just incredible. Having jackpots hit in Pennsylvania and New Jersey just a day apart has really increased interest, with our players hoping to be the next lucky winner.”

PlaySugarHouse has only been live in Pennsylvania since July 15. Divine Fortune claims rights as the first online slots game with a progressive jackpot for PA online casinos.

“That’s real money!”

Significantly, Cathy, who is 62 years-old and lives in Canton, Pennsylvania, spent her life-savings to save her young grandson’s life. Tragically, he passed away two years ago from cancer at the age of eight.

For this reason, winning the jackpot is fortuitous. In addition to using the money for much-needed home improvements as well as paying bills, Cathy will donate part of her winnings to a cancer charity.

Cathy stated her astonishment when the jackpot hit.

“I was blown away.  I started screaming and ran and got my husband and just kept pointing at the computer screen saying, ‘Look!  Look!  I won!  That’s real money!’

You play these games and you think no one really ever wins, but they do. I just can’t believe it was me.  I think my grandson was on my shoulder while I was playing.”

Divine Fortune keeps on rolling

PA players continue to reap the hefty rewards of Divine Fortune slot machine. For example, on Friday the 13th, a lucky lady won a jackpot on HollywoodCasino.com. Around the same time, another player from Lansdale, PA hit the progressive jackpot not once, but twice for an incredible statistical feat.

Incredibly, PA players hitting the Divine Fortune Jackpot now totals six times in the past two months. Even more impressive? The first five occurred in a two-week span.

But, that’s not all. In New Jersey, Divine Fortune is responsible for paying out more than $3 million since its inception in 2017. In fact, a New Jersey cancer survivor hit the Divine Fortune Jackpot on Monday for the third time in less than a six-month span for nearly $140,000. Her total winnings? Almost $300,000.
