A lucky woman from New Jersey won $287,945 while playing the Divine Fortune slot at the SugarHouse Online Casino. This is the largest NJ jackpot won to date since the state launched online gambling in 2013. Ironically, SugarHouse Online Casino is based in Pennsylvania and only joined the market in 2016.

Wins Are Good for NJ Online Gambling
While New Jersey online gambling has had a great year, when a player wins a big jackpot like this, it only serves to bolster the industry. Big wins encourage more players to try their luck and also show non-players that winning real money isn't so far from reality.
NetEnt's Divine Fortune Slot
Divine Fortune is a NetEnt progressive jackpot slot with 5 reels, 20 paylines, and a theme of Ancient Greece. It includes 4 bonus features:
- Falling Wilds Re-Spins: Played when a wild lands on the reels; the wild shifts down 1 position and you win a re-spin. Available in base game and Free Spins feature.
- Wild on Wild: Triggered when an overlay wild lands on top of another wild. The wild expands over the whole reel, and each wild symbol shifts one place vertically and you win a re-spin. Available in base game and Free Spins feature.
- Free Spins: Triggered when 3 or more free spins symbols land anywhere on the reels in the base game/Falling Wilds Re-Spins feature. If three free spins symbols land, you win 5 free spins; 4 free spins symbols give you 8 free spins, and 5 Free Spins symbols award you 12 free spins.
- Jackpot Bonus: This is where the big wins happen. The Jackpot Bonus is triggered when 3 or more bonus gold coin symbols are collected in the base game/Falling Wilds Re-Spins feature. The collected bonus symbols get placed into the reels before the Jackpot Bonus and include 15 reels that spin independently. Each bonus symbol can award you with wins between 10-200x your stake.
