Winning money on an online casino game is always exciting, but snagging the game’s progressive jackpot brings things to a new level. That’s exactly what one DraftKings New Jersey player did this past weekend when wagering on the popular Wheel of Fortune-based slot.

All of them highlight the look and feel of the show by implementing its puzzle board and wheel. Of the eight options, only the MegaJackpots On Air version gives bettors the opportunity of a sizable jackpot.

Spinning the Wheel of Fortune can trigger the MegaJackpots Bonus, resulting in these six-figure wins for NJ online casino gamblers.

DraftKings Vice President of Product Operations, Signe Yama, discussed this latest jackpot win and how the operator sets itself apart. Yama said:

“We are providing DraftKings Casino customers with an exciting variety of iGaming entertainment and prizes that is unlike any other in the industry. It’s thrilling to see our customers win big like the lucky individual who won Sunday’s large jackpot.”
