A player of PlaySugarHouse.com in New Jersey has won a huge jackpot thanks to a small $2 wager.
Online casino gaming is extremely popular in New Jersey. There are tons of online casinos to choose from, so players are not lacking when it comes to having access to quality table games, slots and more. Players must be physically located in the state to take part, so sites are often frequented by residents of the state on a regular basis while visitors to the region also give the online gaming option a try.
With online gaming, players hope to earn a big jackpot win. One of the best ways to win a jackpot is to take part in slot machine gaming. In New Jersey, the online casinos on offer provide a wealth of slot content, including games connected to progressive jackpots. A progressive jackpot is a jackpot that is connected to one or more games, requiring a side bet to be placed in the hope of winning. A small percentage is placed in this jackpot from gaming wagers and over time, the jackpot grows and grows. Just recently, a player at the PlaySugarHouse.com site was able to earn a massive progressive jackpot by playing Divine Fortune, with a wager of just $2.
Small Bet Pays Off
Players of slot machines try different tactics when it comes to gaming. Some players keep it simple and wager just a few dollars while others go for broke and wager the full amount on ach spin. For the lucky player at PlaySugarHouse, the unidentified female decided to play the Divine Fortune slot game, a title based on an ancient Greece theme.
The lucky player wagered just $2 and managed to win a jackpot of $287,945. The big win took place while the player was at work on a conference call and she had to stop herself from screaming out loud when she won.
According to a spokesperson, the win was actually the largest to take place in New Jersey to date. The win was also the largest at the PlaySugarHouse site. SugarHouse Online Casino, the operator of the site, first entered the online gaming market of New Jersey back in September of 2016.
Popular Progressive Game
The Divine Fortune slot game is a popular progressive video slot game found in the state. The title is known to hit Mega Jackpots for players of the PlaySugarHouse site, with the first win taking place on the game back in May of 2017. The win was a little small at $13,950 but the second and third win were much bigger at $91,680 and $46,096 each. Back in March, a jackpot of just over $193,000 was earned while April rewarded a player with $61,266.
President of Rush Street Interactive, Richard Schwartz, commented on the big win by stating:
The big win is just one example of how players can profit from online gaming in New Jersey as well as other states in the US that offer such wagering options. Delaware is home to online casino and poker gaming while Nevada focuses strictly on online poker. In Pennsylvania, online gaming is set to start sometime this year hopefully, if regulators are able to finish up the licensing and regulation process, allowing operators to get started.
