October ended up being a life-changing month for some customers attending Pennsylvania casinos. Rivers Casino Philadelphia had four six-figure jackpot winners last month, including one that took home more than $360,000.

While PA casinos online also provide large jackpot opportunities, there’s nothing like the energy of winning a sizable prize at a retail casino.
