With summer officially ending and the holiday season approaching, there is no better feeling than hitting a large jackpot at a Pennsylvania casino. Two players at Pennsylvania locations hit for more than $100,000 in September, setting the stage for an exciting holiday season.

Live! Casino Philadelphia awards $125,000 to lucky jackpot winner

Live! Casino Philadelphia hosted a Summer Series this summer, where two guests each won $147,735. That magic continued in September for another lucky guest, who cashed out for more than $125,000.

The lucky winner won playing the Huff N’ Puff slot.

Janine de Blois, Director of Slots and Guest Services, told PlayPennsylvania about upcoming October slots promos as well:

“October is shaping up to be a winning month as we debut Giant Jackpot Express, an accelerated version of Giant Jackpots where Live! Rewards members have a chance to win a jackpot up to $10,000 each weekend in the month,” she said. “Giant Jackpot Express joins Giant Jackpots and our $300,000 Football Pick ‘Em Challenge on the promotions roster. We look forward to celebrating guest wins throughout the month at Live! Philadelphia.”

The casino reported four other winners who took home $50,000 or more. Those include:

  • $63,930 playing Dragon Link slot
  • $61,935 playing Three Card Poker
  • $50,744 playing Ultimate Fire Link China Street slot
  • $50,000 playing Ultimate Texas Hold ‘Em

An average $10 bet on a slot machine does not usually result in a $145,585.02 win. But that’s exactly what happened for one Live! Casino Pittsburgh player. The patron spent $10 on the slot machine Piggy Bankin’ on Sept. 15.

A $5 bet on the Buffalo Cash slot yielded a customer $67,789.00, as well.

The casino had three more large winners to report:

  • $58,982 playing Sweet Tweet slot on a $2.50 bet
  • $58,129.70 playing All Aboard Gold Express on a $10 bet
  • $25,520 playing All Aboard Gold Express (unknown bet)

78 slot players won jackpots of $10,000 or more at Rivers Casino Philadelphia

Rivers Casino Philadelphia did not report to PlayPennsylvania any six-figure winners. However, it did report a lot of smaller winners, placing miniscule bets.

Rivers Casino Philadelphia reported a $50,000 winner playing the Double Top Dollar slot. Another player turned a 75-cent bet into $15,162 playing Jackpot Carnival last month.

Here’s a list of other jackpot winners with wagers of $1 or less:

In September, 78 slot players won jackpots of $10,000 or more with 20 of them over $20,000.


$80,000 winner at Rivers Casino Pittsburgh

The largest jackpot winners at Rivers Casino Pittsburgh walked away with $80,000, playing the Wheel of Fortune Double Diamond slot machine. The second- and third-highest jackpots were $60,000 and $53,652, respectively.

Additionally, The Fortune Pai Gow Poker Progressive at Rivers Casino Pittsburgh continues to grow and is currently at $1.8 million, while the poker Bad Beat Jackpot sits at $804,018. Both jackpots continue to move closer to the largest in Rivers’ history. The $1.2 million no-limit Texas hold’em Bad Beat Jackpot that hit in August 2022 is still a US record.
