DraftKings Casino Players Hit Big In New Jersey

DraftKings Casino in New Jersey is gaining a lot of attention these days. Last week, two lucky New Jersey online casino players won million-dollar jackpots at DraftKings Casino in less than two days.

Jason March, VP of iGaming Marketing & Operations, said in the company’s news release:

“Crowning two millionaires in 24 hours was a monumental week for DraftKings Casino. The ability to give our customers the chance to win a big progressive jackpot on over 100 games makes me so proud of our product.”

DraftKings Casino in New Jersey sees two jackpots in 24 hours

On June 13, one player managed to hit the largest progressive jackpot in the DraftKings Casino’s history. He snagged $3.29 million while placing a $0.10 bet on Microgaming’s Ancient Fortunes: Zeus powered by Games Global.

The record-breaking jackpot beats the previous record set in April 2023, when a player won $1.97 million with a $0.10 bet on Extra Chilli Megaways.

Then, on June 14, a lucky DraftKings player won $1.44 million with a $0.10 bet on Microgaming’s 12 Western Horseshoes.

That win brought DraftKings Casino’s total progressive jackpot payouts in New Jersey to $13.49 million since the product launched. Both wins came right after the company announced it had achieved the No. 1 GGR iGaming share in the US during the first quarter of 2023.

DraftKings launches new roulette game in New Jersey

DraftKings Casino has had another big event this week, the launch of Auto American Live Roulette. The game is similar to stadium roulette which can be found at land-based casinos. It features an auto roulette wheel running 24/7 with a backup wheel available, allowing continuous action.

March said:

“We are very pleased to announce the launch of our very own live dealer studio, featuring Auto American Live Roulette. Creating proprietary DraftKings Casino games has always been a core part of our strategy, and exclusive live casino games in this category will expand our reach even further.”

For the time being, DraftKings’ Auto American Live Roulette is only available to casino members in New Jersey. However, DraftKings expects to expand this product and additional live dealer offerings into other jurisdictions where the casino has a presence.

Launched in 2018, DraftKings Casino is live in five states. Apart from New Jersey, the casino is also live in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Connecticut and West Virginia.
