Win Huge With the First Progressive Jackpot Available Online in PA!

Online gaming has finally come to Pennsylvania!

There are currently four online sportsbooks operating in PA and three online casinos (spreading online slots and table games).

One of the newest kids on the block is also one of the biggest. It’s PlaySugarHouse and the new online gaming site boasts Pennsylvania’s first online progressive jackpot slot game.

PlaySugarHouse is the online gaming brand run by SugarHouse Casino (soon to be renamed Rivers Casino Philadelphia) by parent company Rush Street’s Interactive division. Rush Street is an online and retail gaming company that owns and operates several casinos in the US, most under the Rivers brand, including Rivers Casino Pittsburgh.

Pennsylvania’s first progressive slot

PlaySugarHouse’s brand new progressive slot is called Divine Fortune. It’s a $0.20 minimum bet, 20 pay line progressive virtual slot machine in a 5-reel, 3-row format. Divine Fortune’s theme harkens back to classical ancient Greece and features mythical creatures, golden coins, and legendary riches – most notably that top prize progressive jackpot.

Other features of Divine Fortune are Wild substitutions, a Falling Wilds re-spin feature, a Wild-on-Wild feature, Free Spins, and a Jackpot Bonus game with three separate jackpots including the progressive Mega Jackpot!

What are progressive slots?

For players unfamiliar with progressive slots, the term just means that there is a prize (usually, but not always the top prize) that increases in value the more players play. One way to think of the feature is as a “meter” that adds a small percentage of each wager to the progressive jackpot amount as you play.

Progressive jackpots are common on slot machines, video poker machines, and even casino table games like Pai Gow or Caribbean Stud (and can be used on many other games). All that is required is that there be a somewhat difficult to hit prize and a willingness by casino operators to attach a progressive jackpot to it!

Progressive features in online casino games are already quite common and popular in New Jersey, where some jackpots can grow to be over $2 million.

More video reels

It’s still early in the PlaySugarHouse online casino roll-out (the site launched earlier this month) but the site already has 40 other video reel slot titles besides the Divine Fortune progressive.

All these are classic slot titles from well-known online casino game producer NetEnt but there are a few stand-outs that, like Divine Fortune, are either featured titles or newly introduced offerings.

Featured slot titles:

  • Dead or Alive – a 5-reel, 9-line video slot with an American western theme. Catch the wanted bandits to win big!
  • Gonzo’s Quest – players “search for El Dorado” in this adventure-themed 20-line video slot with amazing graphics.
  • Starburst – a beautiful 10-line video slot with an arcade feel and vibrant colors.
  • Twin $pin – an amazing 243 pay lines on this beautiful and modern video slot featuring two reels locked together with identical symbols that help create more winning opportunities.
  • Hotline – a 30-line video slot with Wilds, Expanding Wild substitutions, re-spins, free spins, and the unique Hotline Bonus Bet.
  • Scruffy Duck – this  long-forgotten 25-line title returns with a fresh touch. Get swept away by a wave of video slot fun!

New slot titles:

The three new slot titles at all feature a rock’n’roll theme.

  • Jimi Hendrix – a 20-line video slot that brings the legendary musician to life with features like Pick and Click and Purple Haze Free Spins.
  • Guns n’ Roses – another 20-line video slot based on the iconic band. Play for bonuses and free spins while rocking with Axl and Slash.
  • Motorhead – a rock-themed 76-line video slot with free spins, mystery reels, and a fun Bomber feature. If you engage the optional Rock Mode, the slot machine will constantly blast Motorhead songs at you while you try your luck on this fun and wild slot title.

Not just slots!

Again, it’s still very early in the PlaySugarHouse online casino roll-out in Pennsylvania but they have already introduced some virtual casino table game offerings in the form of three types of roulette games:

  • American Roulette – the classic US version of an old-world gaming staple
  • European Roulette – the original version enhanced with an attractive table, a dynamic billboard, and engaging voice gameplay announcements.
  • French Roulette – a fancy Parisian twist on the old classic.
