New Castle woman wins highest online Delaware jackpot to date

Dover, DE — A 50-year-old New Castle woman ended the year on an incredible high note, winning the Saved by the Bells progressive jackpot of $554,551.75 while playing online casino games on December 31, 2020. The woman, who wished to remain anonymous, has been a registered online player with Delaware Park’s iGaming site since February 2019.

The largest Delaware progressive jackpot win prior to this was for $473,932, won by a Harrington online player in May 2020 playing Santa’s Super Slot on the Harrington Raceway & Casino’s iGaming site. The jackpot is awarded randomly, and no matching symbols are required. The size of the bet and number of pay lines determines the chances of winning the jackpot.

“Another fantastic online jackpot win for Delaware’s iGaming platform,” said Vernon Kirk, director of the Delaware Lottery which operates the casino platforms. “What a way to usher out 2020 and welcome in 2021!”
