A lucky guest at Rivers Casino Philadelphia headlined the jackpot winners of May by earning $210,104 on a royal flush playing Ultimate Texas Hold’em.

May happened to be a great month for visitors at Pennsylvania casinos as many guests hit jackpots for more than $100,000.

The Pennsylvania casinos that reported April jackpots did not have a $100,000 winner. However, in May, plenty of guests hit big.

Rivers Casino Philadelphia distributed more than $1.2 million in May slot jackpots

A lucky guest at Rivers Casino Philadelphia headlined the jackpot winners of May by earning $210,104 on a royal flush playing Ultimate Texas Hold’em. That doesn’t count the $1.2 million in slot jackpots the casino dished out, too.

One player hit for $56,000 on a Keno machine; it was one of 15 jackpots over $20,000. Additionally, a lucky player’s 88-cent bet earned them nearly $21,000 playing Fortune Harmony.

In total, 61 slot jackpots of $10,000 or higher were won last month at Rivers.

The largest winner at Live! Casino Philadelphia in April won $70,000. Last month, the South Philadelphia casino reported to PlayPennsylvania that two guests earned at least $125,000 on slot games. The property disclosed the following slot wins:

Janine de Blois, Director of Slots & Guest Services at Live! Casino Philadelphia, told PlayPennsylvania:

The slots were hot in May with two lucky guests taking home six-figure jackpots while playing Huff n’ More Puff’ last month. Both guests won jackpots of over $125,000, which is incredibly rare to have such similar winnings on the same game during the calendar month. We love when our guests get Lucky at Live! and we’re gearing up for a summer full of winning.”  

Two lucky guests also won sizable blackjack prizes. The top guest took home $65,748 while the other hit for $64,295.
