At the end of June, a someone spinning on the Wonderland slot at Tropicana Casino won a $197,139 jackpot, which at that point was the largest NJ casino win of 2017.

But last week a player at the Golden Nugget Casino struck it rich, winning a $271,268.06 fortune playing the popular Divine Fortune slot game.

Not only did this set a new record for jackpot pay-outs in 2017, it was also the second time that the Golden Nugget casino had paid out a six figure sum on this game since May.


Divine Fortune is produced by renowned gaming developer NetEnt and is one of the most popular progressive slot machines in the industry, appearing on many online casino sites. But the Golden Nugget Casino has earned a reputation for rapidly-climbing jackpots, as the site is the one of the most popular online casinos in the country.

With progressive jackpot games, the size of the jackpot and the rate at which it grows are determined by how many people play it.

Given the popularity of both the Golden Nugget and the Divine Fortune game, it is likely that there will be more six-figure payouts this year.

The Divine Fortune title is particularly well-regarded among online gamers as the base return-to-player is set at 96.6%, which is high for a progressive slot.

As the jackpot grows, the return will grow with it and eventually tip over the 100% mark, making it one of the most player-friendly progressives in the industry.

New Jersey online casinos are only available to play by people located in the state.
