The Lucky Winners!
The first player landed a jackpot prize of $250,000 when playing the progressive jackpot slot game Mercy of the Gods from their desktop computer.
Barely had the dust settled on that first big win of the year, when a second player struck it lucky. Playing from their iPhone on the mobile version of the site, they hit another huge jackpot prize of $370,750 when playing the Divine Fortune progressive jackpot slot game.
It was certainly an expensive three-days for Hollywood Casino who paid out $620,750 in total to the two lucky winners!
The two winners have opted to remain anonymous, although it is known that both are members of the Company’s mychoice® player loyalty program and that both also play a Penn National’s land-based casinos.
Penn National Gaming Inc is the company that owns the HollywoodCasino.com brand and site.
Commenting about the two big winners in the middle of January, the General Manager of iCasino for Penn National Gaming Rich Criado commented:
“We love celebrating our players big wins on HollywoodCasino.com. We’re thrilled that two different players are starting out the year with these big wins.”
Divine Fortune and Mercy of the Gods
The two games on which the lucky players landed their winnings are just a couple of the progressive jackpot slot games available at HollywoodCasino.com.
Progressive jackpot games differ from standard slots in that alongside the standard cash prize payouts offered on a game, they also offer a jackpot prize that increases in value with every spin played on the game until it is triggered by one lucky player.
As these jackpots tend to have no upper limit and can be any size and increase in value, they progress in size, hence they are known as progressive jackpot prizes.
The jackpot prizes available on these games can range from hundreds or a few thousand dollars, up to prizes worth hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars in some cases.
Jackpots Already Increasing in Size Again
It may only have been a few days since the two NetEnt jackpots were triggered by the two winners outlined above, but already they have started to grow again.
As of January 21, the value of the Mercy of the Gods progressive jackpot prize fund had increased to over $64,000.
The Divine Fortune slot had already climbed to over $110,000.
Neither of these games has any upper limit on what the jackpot can grow to.
At the time of writing the Divine Fortune Mega jackpot was now at $69,974 and increasing. The Mercy of the Gods jackpot had reset back to $43,246.
This suggests that the jackpot has already been won AGAIN by another lucky player since the press release was published!
Availability on Desktop and Mobile Devices
Both the games can be played via the desktop version of the website, as well as through bespoke downloadable apps. The Apple app is available in the App Store, while you can download an Android version of the app direct from the HollywoodCasino.com website.
