Exclusive progressive jackpot offered only to New Jersey online casino players

DraftKings announced that it has expanded its New Jersey online casino offering last month.

The online casino and sportsbook operator became the first gambling platform to deliver cross-game genre-linked progressive jackpots. The new feature is only exclusive to DraftKings Casino customers in New Jersey.

DraftKings Casino progressive jackpots offer more winning opportunities

Historically, players can win a jackpot by playing various slots, table games, or video poker that the platform links together. But DraftKings’ exclusive product – built entirely in-house – allows all game types offered on the DraftKings Casino app to link to the same progressive jackpot.

By creating a jackpot incorporated through multiple games, DraftKings offers its players more chances to win. All while delivering an elevated game experience.

DraftKings Casino members in New Jersey can opt in and make an additional bet on jackpot-eligible games for a chance to win more than $100,000. Eligible games

  • Blackjack
  • Roulette
  • Slot games like 88 Fortunes
  • Cleopatra
  • Bonanza
  • Diamond Inferno

$313,445.80 for the first DraftKings progressive jackpot

Only two weeks after launching progressive jackpots on the DraftKings Casino app in New Jersey, one lucky player hit $313,445.80 in the first-ever DraftKings progressive jackpot. The current jackpot is growing again and a new winner can hit anytime.

Signe Yama, DraftKings’ Vice President of Product Operations said:

“We are thrilled to offer DraftKings Casino customers more exciting ways to win. Our team is dedicated to pushing innovation forward and creating new products that are exclusive to DraftKings for our customers to enjoy.

We have seen early success since launching progressive jackpots in New Jersey and can’t wait to see more of our customers take home large jackpot winnings.”

Currently, DraftKings only offers the progressive jackpot exclusively to DraftKings Casino players in New Jersey. However, the casino operator plans to expand this product into other US jurisdictions.

Expansion plans into other US online casino markets

Apart from New Jersey, the DraftKings Casino app is also available to players in:

  • Connecticut
  • Michigan
  • Pennsylvania
  • West Virginia
  • Ontario in Canada

Users can access the online casino on casino.draftkings.com or download the DraftKings Casino app on iOS and Android.

DraftKings is committed to providing customers with a regulated and engaging gaming experience. With more than 500 games offered on DraftKings Casino, players can win millions of monthly prizes.

The Boston-based operator reminded its customers that responsible gaming is a key pillar of its S.E.R.V.E.S. program. Through this program, DraftKings aims to create inclusive and responsible pathways for people to build, create, imagine and innovate.
