Written By Vanessa Lutz on September 20, 2019

Spooks and bad luck, be gone! Luck be a lady on Friday the 13th.

On the evening of Friday the 13th, a lucky lady from Carlisle, PA struck a mega jackpot worth $40,511.69 in the comfort of her own home on a computer desktop.

In brief, the lucky winner logged onto and played Divine Fortune for less than an hour before the jackpot hit. The bet? A little less than half the game’s maximum bet. is the online gambling platform for Penn National Gaming, Inc.  General Manager of iCasino for Penn National, Rich Criado is excited to offer online casino games to Pennsylvania.

Our goal is to create the best online casino experience. The ability to hit a jackpot of this size is exhilarating for our players. We’re thrilled to be able to offer these big win opportunities to Pennsylvania players.

Divine Fortune on a roll

Divine Fortune’s Mega Jackpot continues to grow anytime a player places a bet. In fact, there is no cap on the jackpot. Therefore, the jackpot continues to grow until a lucky player wins. Afterwards, the money simply resets and the process starts all over. The mega jackpot already sits around $22,500.

In case that is not tantalizing enough, Divine Fortune also offers a Minor and Major Jackpot. Minor Jackpots pay 20X the bet and Major Jackpots pay 100X the bet.

At the present time, Divine Fortune’s PA players are on an incredible winning streak. The other online casino option, PlaySugarHouse, is on an incredible hot streak. Since Labor Day, Divine Fortune paid out five times. The same lucky lady won two jackpots in a period of five days for an impressive statistical feat.

About holds the PA record of being the first casino operator to take an online bet.

In addition, it is also the first online casino to be listed in the Apple App Store. Unlike the other online casinos, SugarHouse and BetRivers, Hollywood actually has a native iPhone app. Due to Apple’s recent guidelines change, online casinos are forced to revamp their software or find workarounds. Comparatively, SugarHouse and Rivers use GeoComply, a browser based workaround.

Although Hollywood’s Apple library of 12 games pales in comparison to 70 games offered on Android and desktop gaming, things are about to change. Recently, Hollywood teamed up with IGT to offer even more games such as video poker and blackjack.
