Christmas definitely came early for some lucky players at Pennsylvania casinos, sports betting apps and online casinos. There were a number of big winners in November and December who got “hot” while the temperatures dropped.
Let’s take a look at some of the recent winners.
(This is not a complete list of all winners.)
Divine Fortune jackpot for Reading grandmother
A grandmom from Reading, PA won $182,391 on a .40 cent bet playing Divine Fortune at PlaySugarHouse. The mother of four and grandmother of seven plans to use the mega jackpot winnings to pay off her house and buy presents for her family.
The 44-year-old grandmom who chose to remain anonymous said in a press release from PlaySugarHouse:
“I’m going to be playing Santa Claus to my grandkids and kids who weren’t sure how they were going to pay for Christmas presents this year. I’ve worked two jobs my whole life raising my children as a single mom and I’ve never really gambled a lot as all my money goes to my family. This night though I just wanted to relax in the tub and enjoy some online entertainment, limiting myself to no more than $20, never thinking I would hit a jackpot playing .40 cents at a time This proves people like me can really win!”
Rush Street Interactive has paid out the Divine Fortune Mega Jackpot to 98 winners in Pennsylvania on both its PlaySugarHouse and BetRivers for a total progressive payout of over $13.6 million.

“This is my son. He isn’t really a huge gambler. He and some friends went to the casino to watch the Steeler game. It could not have happened to a more grateful person. He gave a very generous tip to the dealers. He said he was blessed from God and wanted to pass his blessing on to others. Now I told him to go buy some snow boots, he just loves his flip flop!!”
