Dover, DE — On Monday, May 3, 2021, a Delaware Park online player was playing one of the NEW jackpot games called “Aztec Realm” and hit the Saved by the Bells progressive jackpot for $408,631. The jackpot hit was the 2nd largest progressive jackpot hit in Delaware iGaming history, surpassed only by a $554,552 winner in December, 2020.

All three online Delaware Casino sites (Delaware Park, Dover Downs, and Harrington) have launched with NEW Orbit sites and additional game content, now players can choose to play over 100 online video slot games on their PC or favorite mobile device (Android and iOS).

“We’re proud to offer even more online jackpot game excitement through Delaware’s new iGaming platform,” said Vernon Kirk, Director of the Delaware Lottery which operates the casino platforms. “Congratulations to this lucky jackpot winner. We can’t wait to celebrate more big wins like this one in 2021.”

Originally our “Saved by the Bells” progressive jackpot was contributed to by 5 games: Pirates Millions, Irish Riches, Santa’s Super Slot, Steampunk Nation and Saved by the Bells. When each casino launched with the NEW Orbit casino platforms (February 2021) additional game content was added and 4 new jackpot games were added to the “Saved by the Bells” progressive. Those games include Aztec Realm, Mermaid’s Millions, Oktoberfest, and Rise of the Pharaohs. Now, there are a total of 9 jackpot games that contribute to the “Saved by the Bells” progressive jackpot. The jackpot is awarded randomly, no matching symbols are required. The size of the bet and number of the pay lines determines the chances of winning the jackpot.
