Most slot machine enthusiasts will go their entire lives without winning a major progressive jackpot, but for one woman in New Jersey, lightning has struck three times in the span of six months.
Pamela, a 49-year old resident of Deptford, New Jersey who prefers to keep her surname anonymous at this time, works as a benefits manager for a local energy company. In her spare time, Pamela enjoys playing slots on the PlaySugarHouse.com online / mobile casino – a pursuit which has proven to be quite lucrative of late.
Back on April 23, Pamela – a longtime fan of land-based casinos who had only recently converted to the online / mobile arena – parlayed a $10 spin on the Divine Fortune slot game into a progressive “Mega” jackpot worth $139,852. Two weeks after that life-changing score, the cancer survivor bet $10 during another Divine Fortune session and triggered a second Mega jackpot for $20,587.
A pair of progressive jackpot winners is difficult enough, but Pamela wasn’t done with Divine Fortune just yet. In the early morning hours of October 21, while killing time before her flight departed, she fired up the PlaySugarHouse.com app and wagered $100 on a Divine Fortune spin.
Pamela watched as the reels lined up with three or more of the special Golden Pegasus symbols, thus activating Divine Fortune’s bonus jackpot game. From there, a run of free spins produced three full reels showing the Golden Pegasus symbol, triggering Divine Fortune’s topline progressive jackpot for a $138,490 payday.
Winner Reacts to Unimaginable Run of Good Fortune
In a press release issued by Rush Street Interactive, the Illinois-based parent company of PlaySugarHouse.com, Pamela spoke to the astronomical odds against her incredible jackpot jag:
“I really just cannot believe it.
The odds of winning once is crazy, let alone twice… I knew I wanted to try for a third time but didn’t really think it would actually happen.”
In the months since her initial wins, Pamela says she has tried to spread the wealth by treating friends and families to fancy dinners and other perks:
“I’m lucky to have these great people in my life and it’s great to be able to have the money to really be able to celebrate them.”
As for the latest jackpot haul, she’s already planning an Alaskan cruise with her parents and fiancé to celebrate her father’s 80th birthday.
In the press release, the Divine Fortune Slots jackpot winner confirmed that she will continue to call PlaySugarHouse.com home when it comes to her online / mobile slot play:
“I’m just a regular person with a regular job who goes to work every day and enjoys a hobby of playing online.
If I can win, let alone three times, anyone can.”
Mattias Stetz – who serves as chief operating officer for Rush Street Interactive – used his public statement to congratulate Pamela on her winning ways:
“It’s absolutely incredible to see the same player win again. It just goes to show that anyone can win with any bet at any time.
We are so happy for Pamela and know she’s been a huge cheerleader for PlaySugarHouse.com.
With the news spreading of her incredible story and how many jackpots have hit, we know we will continue to see more people playing in the hopes of having the same luck.”
