Michigan Player Wins $275K Jackpot On Divine Fortune DraftKings Slot

Written By Matt Schoch on April 18, 2021

We have yet another big slot game celebrating a Michigan online casino jackpot.

DraftKings Casino tweeted late Friday that a Michigan player won $275,754.21 on a Divine Fortune progressive jackpot. There was no further information available as of Sunday afternoon about the player, but PlayMichigan has reached out to DraftKings for more details.

The tweet indicated the player hit the jackpot on a $2 bet.

Divine Fortune jackpots popping up across Michigan

Last month, we told you about a Zeeland firefighter who won $175,000 on a $10 bet on Divine Fortune through Stars Casino.

Brandon Holmes was the big winner in West Michigan, but we don’t know who the lucky winner was through DraftKings.

Holmes was home recovering from back surgery when he struck his big win.

That was the first huge Michigan online casino jackpot that we had known of since the games launched here Jan. 22.

Coincidentally, the expanded gambling options also benefit other ailing first responders such as Holmes. As part of the laws, Michigan’s online casino gaming platforms will kick in $4 million annually to the state’s First Responder Presumed Coverage Fund, which compensates firefighters with certain cancers for their coverage.

Divine Fortune a popular slot title throughout US

Divine Fortune, which is a NetEnt casino game, is based on Greek myths. Familiar figures in mythology, including Pegasus, Medusa and the Minotaur, are found on the reels.

In order for the jackpots to grow so big, 3.7% of each bet goes to the mega jackpot.

Divine Fortune is one of the few slot titles available at all 11 online casinos in Michigan. Each operator has a different rolling jackpot for the game. The theoretical return to player is 96.59%, according to the game rules.

And no, you can’t find NetEnt slots in live Michigan casinos. You have to play them online.

More big winners will come, along with Michigan state taxes

Nearly $80 million in revenue was raised by internet gaming in February, the first full month live in the state.

Michigan could become the first state to record a nine-figure revenue month in March for online casinos. Pennsylvania reported $97.7 million of March revenue last week.

As for state taxes, internet gaming raised $18.3 million in state taxes in January and February, which consisted of just 38 gaming days. Internet gaming totals also include online poker, which now has two live operators.

The March numbers are expected to be released by the Michigan Gaming Control Board this week.
