Someone has hit the jackpot: a Michigan player (who will remain anonymous, and for good reason), just secured a substantial win at DraftKings – an amazing $1.2 million from the slot game Cash Eruption. But it seems that the player isn’t the only one who has won big in the Great Lakes state – he follows in the heels of another player who also took home the big prize in Blackjack 4, and other lucky winners in slot games like Cleopatra II and 777 Surge.

A fortunate player from Michigan has struck it big in DraftKings Casino, winning a colossal $1.2 million jackpot. The announcement came through a post on the casino's X social media platform, and while the identity of the lucky winner remains anonymous, it was revealed that they won the massive prize while playing the popular slot game Cash Eruption.

Cash Eruption, a slot with a fruit theme developed by IGT, is well-loved in the online gaming community. According to monthly reports by Eilers & Krejcik Gaming, which analyze data from 30 online casinos across six US markets (including Michigan), Cash Eruption is one of the top-performing slot games. The game features a 5x3 layout along with 20 paylines, high volatility, and a 96% RTP. Aside from this, players can enjoy a variety of bonus features, including Scatters, free spins, Wilds, bonus respins, and a total four different Jackpots.

Celebrating a year of big wins for MI players

This year has been truly exceptional for MI players – and it’s only the middle of 2024! Michigan players have had a remarkable year on DraftKings Casino, with numerous big wins. While the million-dollar mark isn't reached every month, they have consistently secured significant jackpots. In May, for instance, a MI player won almost $800K on Cleopatra, while another lucky player landed a $576,163 jackpot on Ultra Blazing Fire Link.

But it's not just in slot games where Michigan players have found success. In May, an anonymous player won almost $500K on Blackjack 4, and other substantial wins include $711,852 on DraftKings Multihand Blackjack and $482,453 on another blackjack game, Hockey Blackjack.

But it doesn’t end there: the recent $1.2 million jackpot win at June’s end adds to a prolonged series of impressive victories for Michigan players in 2024. Earlier in the year, two players won $1,598,396 on 777 Surge and $1,653,849 on Cleopatra II, both in January. Except for April, when the largest jackpot was $100,000, virtually every month has seen significant wins by Michigan players across various games, including slots, table games, and live dealer games.

DraftKings: a leading operator in Michigan

DraftKings has firmly established itself as a top online casino in Michigan (as in other states, for that matter). According to data on revenue, it ranks as the third-best operator in the state, with $34.9 million reported for May 2024, just in revenue alone - even in what was considered a weaker month. DraftKings maintains a larger share of the market compared to BetRivers (in 4th place) and Caesars Palace Online (in 5th place).

Since launching in Michigan in 2021, DraftKings has already offered a vast array of gaming options, including thousands of slot games, progressive jackpots, and exclusive RNG games and live table games. The operator is also known for its competitive promotions and highly rated casino apps.

The recent $1.2 million jackpot win is a testament to the excitement and potential rewards available to players on DraftKings Casino. As Michigan's online gambling market continues to grow, players can look forward to even more thrilling opportunities to win big. Whether it's spinning the reels of popular slots like Cash Eruption or trying their luck at live dealer and table games, Michigan gamblers have plenty of reasons to stay engaged and optimistic about their chances on any casino game at DraftKings.
