How much has Divine Fortune paid out in NJ?
Just how popular is Divine Fortune? Consider that since the NJ online gambling industry launched in 2014, progressive slots have awarded at least $6,323,809 to lucky players, according to data provided by the Division of Gaming Enforcement (In reality, this number is much higher, but the stats available only disclose jackpots over $50,000). Divine Fortune alone accounts for around 44% of that amount, paying out a total of $2,753,642 to date.
This is all the more impressive considering the slot has only been in operation since 2017, while others, like Borgata’s Going Nuts has been spinning since 2013. Here’s what Divine Forture has paid out broken down by year:
- 2016 payouts: Pre-launch (read our 2016 annual jackpot report)
- 2017 payouts: $1,322,288 (read our 2017 annual jackpot report)
- 2018 payouts: $1,431,354
- Total reported payout: $2,753,642
What’s more, much of that cash has been pocketed by gamblers playing not on their desktop computers, but on smartphones and tablets. A total of $780,493 has been awarded to mobile players since the game debuted in the state.

Jackpot awards by operator
Not all of the sites offering Divine Fortune have paid out a single jackpot over $50,000 – yet. However, several of them have. Here’s a breakdown of total tracked payouts by operator:
- Golden Nugget: $1,300,106
- Betfair: $692,460
- Play SugarHouse: $634,626
- BetMGM: $66,635
- Mohegan Sun Casino: $59,815
It’s no surprise that Golden Nugget, Betfair, and Play SugarHouse top the list in terms of Divine Fortune jackpots. All three online casinos are licensed through Golden Nugget’s brick-and-mortar property, and together, consistently dominate the competition in terms of iGaming revenue.
Mohegan Sun Casino and BetMGM both have the advantage of networking their Divine Fortune jackpots with other sites (Resorts and Borgata, respectively), thus enabling the progressive to grow to a faster rate their it would otherwise.
High levels of traffic and networking are especially important for progressive slots, which take a small portion of each bet and add it to the main kitty. When more gamblers play the game, the progressive grows bigger more quickly, attracting even more players looking to take a shot at the swollen grand prize.
