The end of summer can inflict such sorrow. But for the two players who hit the Divine Fortune Jackpot on over Labor Day weekend, it was was very sweet.

The back-to-back wins occurred less than forty minutes apart. They represent the first progressive jackpots won in Pennsylvania.

Divine Fortune is the first online slots game with a progressive jackpot for Pennsylvania online casinos.

SugarHouse Online Casino went live in the state on July 17, offering a fully-integrated experience that seamlessly merges casino games with sports betting.

Two Divine Fortune winners

On Sept. 1 at 7:30 a.m., a woman from Selinsgrove, PA hit for $196,209 on a $4 bet after only playing Divine Fortune for 17 minutes.

Then, “Fortune” struck again.

Thirty-nine minutes later, a man from Warrington, PA hit for $57,349 on a $30 bet after playing for nearly an hour. He had just signed up for an account on 10 days earlier. Both winners were playing on their desktop computers when they won.

Chatroom cheers jackpot winners

Other players were stunned that the first-ever progressive jackpot hit for almost $200,000. In fact, they were still congratulating that winner in the chat room. Then, the second jackpot hit.

“Our Chat Room exploded with excitement when these players won,” said Richard Schwartz, the president of Rush Street Interactive, the site’s operator.

“When a Mega Jackpot hits it’s good for us, and the entire online gaming industry, as it shows anyone can easily make a few bets and change their life forever.”
