New Jersey Man Wins $194,000 Jackpot on Divine Fortune SlotPublished April 2, 2018 by Ivan P
The 33-year old construction company superintendent from New Jersey landed the major progressive jackpot on Divine Fortune on his very first spin.
Although online gambling is largely not allowed in the USA, there are a few states that have passed the internet gambling bills, allowing their citizens to try their luck with online casinos. New Jersey is one of these states, which turned out very fortuitous for one Anibal Lopes of Woodbridge, New Jersey. Namely, Mr. Lopes decided to try his luck at playsugarhouse casino and ended up landing a massive $194,000 jackpot on NetEnt's Divine Fortune slot on his very first spin.
Right Moment to Get Started
In his own words, the 33-year old winner travels to Atlantic City a few times a year to play there, but he prefers gambling from the comfort of his own home, playing on his smartphone. A week ago, after his Monday shift at work, Lopes decided to join a new casino and try his luck there. As it turned out, he picked just the right moment to do it.
The $194,000 progressive jackpot was accumulating since November last year and Lopes got lucky to press the game's spin button at just the right moment, winning the major score. It is interesting that Lopes used to play on and off on a number of New Jersey online casinos since 2013 but decided to take a break for while before coming back to it on Monday evening.
NetEnt Slots in the USA
Divine Fortune is one of many slots by NetEnt available to players from the United States. The company has ensured its presence in the regulated markets in the States and online casinos were eager to jump at an opportunity to offer their players the games from NetEnt's rich portfolio.
By getting their foot in the door early on, the company probably hopes to go with the flow and expand to other markets in the US as the regulation picks up. In the meantime, New Jersey players such as Mr. Lopes can have their share of entertainment, combined with a shot at some big wins.
