On March 10, 2019, a lucky player on Pennsylvania’s Online Lottery made a $10 bet on the Rainbow Fortune game, clicked PLAY, and was pleasantly surprised to have won a $100,000 payout on that spin.
The lucky player in question was from Washington County and had been playing on a Lucky Sunday Promotion in which players are eligible to receive 25% cashback on losses if they play one of two “Luck” themed games, Rainbow Fortunes or Fast Bet Lucky.
The PA iLottery runs these cashback promotions frequently. They will vary the day (of the week) of the promotion, the game titles that are eligible for the promotion, and the cashback percentage of the promotion – typically between 10% and 25%. These promotions are popular on the site and operate as a kickback on calculated losses rather than on overall volume of play.
Needless to say, the lucky player from Washington County wasn’t able to take advantage of the cashback promotion on March 10!
Many big (and small) winners from the PA iLottery
The $100K win on the 10th was the first of this size this year but there were three other $100K wins last year. The last came in December and was won on the game Super Gems.
All in all, the PA iLottery has had four $100,000 one-spin-wins in the roughly 10 months since the site was launched in May of last year. They have also paid out over $210 million in prizes to approximately 100,000 online players. That’s not too shabby for a state lottery that has been operational for less than a year.
Rainbow Fortunes has been HOT
Rainbow Fortunes has been a very popular game offering since it was added to the Pennsylvania Online Lottery’s stable of over 35 games. It was hot from the get-go and got even hotter in the weeks leading up to St. Patrick’s Day.
This is due to it’s thematic features like pots of gold, lucky horseshoes, and shamrocks that reveal a distinct St. Paddy’s flavor.
Rainbow Fortunes is set up as a match-style game in which players win prizes when three or more like symbols appear (are revealed) in a row along any vertical, horizontal, or diagonal line. To spice things up even further, the game has two separate mini-games – the Lucky Barrel Bonus and the Pots O’ Gold Bonus.
St. Patrick’s Day will soon be behind us, but it’s expected that Rainbow Fortunes will still be quite popular. One reason of course, is that news of this $100K win will spark new interest. Another reason is that Rainbow Fortunes is a relatively attractive game from a player payback perspective, having a player return of 86.7%. This places it as one of the top ten games on the Pennsylvania Online Lottery based on player return percentage.
