December 31, 2019 GMT

GRANTVILLE, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 31, 2019--

A lucky player on HollywoodCasino.com, the online gaming platform for Penn National Gaming, Inc. (PENN: Nasdaq) (“Penn National” or the “Company”), ended the year with some great news after a $285,385 jackpot win on the morning of December 28.

The player, who asked to remain anonymous, won the Mega Jackpot on Divine Fortune while playing in the Hollywood Casino iPhone mobile app.

“This has been our the biggest online jackpot win so far,” says Rich Criado, General Manager of iCasino for Penn National. “We’re thrilled that this player is going into the new year with more than $285,000 in the bank!”

Divine Fortune on HollywoodCasino.com

Divine Fortune’s local progressive Mega Jackpot is a big draw for players. This jackpot win marks the second time a player has won the Divine Fortune Mega Jackpot on HollywoodCasino.com since the site launched in July.

Given the popularity of Divine Fortune with HollywoodCasino.com players, the Mega Jackpot has already grown to more than $80,000 since the December 28 th win. In addition to the growing Mega Jackpot, Divine Fortune offers a Minor Jackpot that pays 20X the player’s bet, and a Major Jackpot which pays 100X the player’s bet. Players can improve their chances of winning the Mega Jackpot by placing higher bets, though the Mega Jackpot can be won at any bet amount.

There’s no upper limit to Divine Fortune’s Mega Jackpot, so the jackpot amount continues to grow with each spin until someone wins. Divine Fortune is currently the only game in Pennsylvania with this type of local progressive jackpot. Unlike some slot machines on casino floors, online casinos in Pennsylvania do not currently offer networked progressive jackpots.

HollywoodCasino.com currently offers Divine Fortune on PA.HollywoodCasino.com on desktop and mobile apps. The Android Hollywood Casino app can be downloaded directly from the PA.HollywoodCasino.com website, and the Apple app can be downloaded from the App Store.
