Woman Wins $288,000 at Playsugarhouse.com at Work

This story was published more than 2 years ago.

Recently a woman at work hit it big during a conference call, hitting a $288,000 slot jackpot at New Jersey based Playsugarhouse.com.

The announcement came from the casino itself, saying that the woman was sitting in on a conference call while spinning the reels. She placed a $2 bet on the NetEnt slot Divine Fortune and hit the game's progressive jackpot. The woman claimed she almost shouted out loud during the call, but kept her composure until after the call wrapped up.

The prize is the largest win that the state of New Jersey's online gambling market has seen, and has become the seventh six-figure win in the five years the market has been around. Playsugarhouse is run by Rush Street Interactive and offers slots and table games to punters within the state of New Jersey.

Commenting on the win Rush Street Interactive President Richard Schwartz said, "Hitting this record-breaking jackpot is great for us and for the entire online gaming industry, as it proves people can win life-changing amounts online at anytime and anyplace."

Well, that's what we call a professional there, spinning the reels during a business call, for my regret I know in private too many of this persons here and I can assure you this doesn't make your job running smoothly with a colleagues like this.
Probably not the most well deserved win in the history.

Yeah ... Maybe it's the right time so she can't stop not turning the "spin" button when making business calls, and I call it "destiny" ...

That's quite an unusual way to win a jackpot! I'm interested to hear more what she's planning to do with this win.. quit job or play more on conference calls?

Yeah probably the last thing you suggested blck, 😉 don't think she would quit that job when she could spin during the working day anyway.
