Delaware resident hits online casino jackpot of $242,000


One lucky Delawarean scored huge on Dover Downs online gaming site, hitting the jackpot of $242,000.

On Sunday, September 8th, a recently registered online player with Dover Downs Hotel & Casino’s iGaming site was testing their luck on one of the online jackpot games, Steampunk Nation.

At home on their phone, the player, who wished to remain anonymous, played for about 30 minutes before finally getting the specific combination needed for the Jackpot win of $242,233.94. This is the first time the jackpot has been won on Steampunk Nation.

“What an incredible win,” said Vernon Kirk, Director of the Delaware Lottery. “We’re proud to offer Delaware Lottery players another fun way to win big with our iGaming options.”

The video lottery game, Steampunk Nation was added to the new online casino platforms in May 2018. When the new casino platforms were launched, six new jackpot games were added.

From the six new jackpot games, five of them contribute to the same jackpot: Pirates Millions, Irish Riches, Santa’s Super Slot, Steampunk Nation and Saved by the Bells. The sixth newest jackpot game is Ultimate Universe, whose jackpot hit last month (August 2019) for $25,257.22.

In October, 2013, Delaware was the first to launch real money, casino style online gaming. There are three sites available for players to play, one for each casino (Delaware Park, Dover Downs, and Harrington Raceway).
