Live! Casino Philadelphia’s third anniversary is approaching, as it just broke a new record earlier this week. A guest at the South Philadelphia casino cashed the property’s largest slot jackpot of all time of $183,579 earlier this week.

Slots are by far the most popular options at retail casinos, as well as PA online casinos, too.

“The energy at Live! Philadelphia was electric this weekend as we celebrated our third anniversary in the City of Brotherly Love, and who doesn’t love to win a record jackpot?! It’s always exciting when our guests get Lucky at Live!, but it was even more thrilling that a bet on a 10-cent machine turned into our largest single slot jackpot win since opening. Congratulations to our lucky guest… and Happy Anniversary to Live!.”

Live! Philadelphia’s three-year anniversary promotion

Live! Casino Philadelphia did a soft opening in January 2021, but the grand opening occurred later in early February. The casino has been running for exactly three years.

It placed eighth in slot revenue, recording $136.9 million last year, and third in table games revenue, posting $108.4 million. The property finished behind Wind Creek Bethlehem and Parx Casino Bensalem, which generated $241.3 million and $202 million, respectively, in 2023.

Live! Casino Philadelphia has carved out a perfect niche within the state and is a well-respected, popular establishment. For its third anniversary, the casino is celebrating with its guests. It has a promotion that is running through Feb. 24:

“Live! Rewards members can earn one entry to spin the anniversary prize wheel for every 50 tier credits earned. Live! Rewards Gold Card members and higher will also receive bonus entries corresponding to their tier level. Members can also receive entries earned via PlayLive! from Thursday, February 1 through Sunday, February 25. Each Saturday in February from 1:00 p.m. – 9:55 p.m., Live! Rewards members who swipe their card at any promotional kiosk, slot machine or table game will have an entry activated for that half-hour’s drawing. Each Saturday, three winners will be drawn each half hour from 2:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m., to spin the anniversary wheel for their prize.”

Last year, to celebrate the property’s second anniversary, it donated $750,000 to Rebuild Philadelphia. Children of Murphy Recreation Center in South Philadelphia got a brand new turf field for softball, baseball, football and soccer, as well as a new LED lighting system for the basketball court.
