The online gaming platform of Penn National Gaming, Inc. is celebrating a milestone, as a woman from Carlisle, PA proved extremely lucky on Friday the 13th, becoming the very first winner of HollywoodCasino.com’s Divine Fortune Mega Jackpot.
The jackpot, amounting to $40,511.69, was won on a desktop computer on the evening of September 13th. The winner has been playing Divine Fortune for less than an hour when she won the jackpot. Her wager was less than half of the game’s maximum bet amount. This should help convince people to let go of the old beliefs associating Friday the 13th with spooks and bad luck.
The jackpot win has created a lot of excitement in the online casino world, and Penn National Gaming General Manager of iCasino Rich Criado has said: “Our goal is to create the best online casino experience. The ability to hit a jackpot of this size is exhilarating for our players. We’re thrilled to be able to offer these big win opportunities to Pennsylvania players.”
One of the most exciting things about the Divine Fortune Mega Jackpot is that it increases every time a player places a bet, and it does not stop increasing until it is won. The jackpot then resets after the win, and then starts growing again after each wager is placed. You will know how much the current Mega Jackpot is by checking the top of the screen where it is displayed.
Since the huge win on Friday the 13th, the Divine Fortune Mega Jackpot has already grown to $22,500. Other than the ever-increasing Mega Jackpot, Divine Fortune also offers a Minor Jackpot that offers players up to 20x their bet. Additionally, there is a Major Jackpot, which awards 100x the player’s wager. With the Mega Jackpot, a player can improve his chances of winning by increasing his wager, although the jackpot can be won regardless of the bet amount.
There is no ceiling set for the Divine Fortune Mega Jackpot, which means there is no limit to how much you could win, as the jackpot just keeps on growing until it is won. This is currently the only game that offers this type of jackpot in the state of Pennsylvania.
Players can find Divine Fortune on desktop at the PA.HollywoodCasino.com as well as on the Android Hollywood Casino application. The app can be downloaded directly from the HollywoodCasino.com website. The game will soon be available as well on the Hollywood Casino PA Real Money app for iOS. Players will be able to download this app from the App Store.
It is looking like Pennsylvania’s Divine Fortune players are presently on a roll. They’ve had a winning streak not only on HollywoodCasino.com, but also on the other only casino, PlaySugarHouse. In fact, the game has paid out a jackpot five times since Labor
Day. And the lucky lady who won the Mega Jackpot on Friday the 13th? She actually won two jackpots in a five-day period, which is an impressive statistical feat!
