COLLINGSWOOD, N.J., Dec. 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- PlaySugarHouse.com is making Christmas a whole lot merrier for a Somerset County woman who hit the mega jackpot on Divine Fortune late last night. Stephanie J., who asked that we not share her last name, hit the jackpot with only a $1 bet, winning $140,144.52.
The 37-year old non-profit worker was celebrating the holidays at her parent's house when she decided to play the online progressive game. Her mother and sister were watching when she struck her fortune.
"We were at first shocked and simply stunned," said Stephanie. "Then we all just started screaming and woke up the whole house. This changes everything. It really is life changing."
Single, Stephanie says she'll use her winnings to pay off her car, invest, pay it forward by helping others and treat her family to some really great Christmas presents this year! She adds she's only been betting online for just over two years and only plays on PlaySugarHouse.com and never plays more than $1 bets and limits her betting to never more than $100.
"We love hearing how our players plan to use their winnings and how these jackpots will change their lives," said Mattias Stetz, C.O.O. of Rush Street Interactive, the site's operator. "This latest winner hitting the jackpot on a $1 bet also shows it doesn't matter the amount you bet, anyone can win!"
PlaySugarHouse.com also has a site in Pennsylvania, where the Divine Fortune jackpot has hit 10 times since its summer launch, with the last three happening during this holiday season. A Hillsdale man hit twice, once in November on a $20 bet and just last week on a $100 bet, to win more than $386,000.
