DraftKings Casino Launches Exclusive Progressive Jackpots Available in New Jersey
BOSTON — (November 1, 2022) — Last month, DraftKings Inc. (Nasdaq: DKNG) became the first iGaming platform in North America to deliver cross-game genre linked progressive jackpots – a new feature that recently launched, exclusive to DraftKings Casino customers in New Jersey.
Jackpots are historically built within various slots, table games or video poker and linked together; however, DraftKings’ exclusive product – built entirely in-house – allows DraftKings to link all game types offered on the DraftKings Casino App to the same progressive jackpot while delivering an elevated game experience with more opportunities for customers to win.
Available only to DraftKings Casino customers in New Jersey, players have the ability to opt-in and make an additional wager on jackpot eligible games for a chance to take home the winning jackpot. Eligible games include blackjack, roulette and favorite slot games like 88 Fortunes. Click here to view the full list of jackpots.
Within the first two weeks of launching progressive jackpots in New Jersey on the DraftKings Casino App, one lucky player won $313,445.80 in the first-ever DraftKings progressive jackpot. The current jackpot is now growing again. For the latest jackpot updates, visit DraftKings Casino’s website here.
