Jackpot Video Poker Weekend at Vegas

Jackpot Video Poker Weekend at Vegas

A place like Vegas is full of casino fans looking to make it big. It has brand names galore and caters to players of all shapes and sizes with all sorts of preferences. So, it’s not really surprising that most of them are going for a jackpot win.

Recently, Vegas had a jackpot weekend as there were multiple jackpots won across Strip casinos. The interesting thing about them is that all of them were won while playing video poker. Another thing that binds them is that they are all progressive ones and they all happen to be six-figure jackpots.

Multiple Progressive Jackpots Landed

For the first jackpot of the many, we take you to Caesar’s Palace where a player managed to land $440,000. Another player decided to follow in the first one’s footsteps and landed another jackpot which amounted to $120,300. But to make things even more interesting, a player on Friday started the jackpot weekend with a progressive jackpot of $401,000.

The players decided to remain anonymous and took their prizes. Still, they made for an amazing weekend in Vegas and went down as legends. Video poker is a popular poker variant at land-based and online casinos. Some of them happen to be paired with a progressive jackpot prize, which is pretty difficult to land.

When it comes to table games, players need to place a side bet and land a specified hand to earn the jackpot. This was best illustrated by a player at Harrah’s the previous weekend. The player in question is Joel Sandoval and he played video poker, just like the other winners of the weekend.

This Californian man decided on placing the side bet to have a shot at the jackpot. The hand he needed was a royal flush, a hand that doesn’t come easily in poker. But it seems he played his cards right which is why he’s richer by $143,042. He was taken aback by the win and decided to spend the money on a house.

Conclusion

Vegas is a special place for any casino fan. The previous weekend shows everyone just how lucky people can get when playing video poker and going for the jackpot. With luck on your side, a bit of patience, and keeping a cool head players will have a better chance of getting a jackpot. Knowing when to quit is also important which is why players need to enjoy video poker responsibly.
