Kansas Poker Player Lands $1 Million Jackpot

Kansas Poker Player Lands $1 Million Jackpot

When it comes to casinos and jackpots in the US the first place that comes to mind is Vegas or Atlantic City. Naturally, casinos are confined to those 2 locations but rather scattered throughout the States, like in Kansas for example.

The Prairie Band Casino and Resort in Kansas is one of the popular casinos in the area and recently it had an interesting win. In other words, a Kansas player named Steven L. got lucky while playing poker and landed a jackpot of over $1 million dollars. He did it by landing a Royal Flush too.

Landing a Royal Flush Isn’t Easy

Jackpots are the most sought-after prizes in the world of casinos, and it takes considerable effort to land them in establishments or online. They can be fixed or progressive, but both sorts of jackpots award considerable sums to their winners. The thing that separates progressive jackpots from others is that there’s no telling how high the amount can go.

Another thing that makes this jackpot so interesting is that it lands randomly and one winner gets it all. There’s no certain way of determining when it will land. These jackpots are usually tied to slots, whether they be online or slot machines, and table games.

The latter example is what happened at the Kansas casino. In other words, Steven L. decided to go for poker, or to be more specific Ultimate Texas Hold’em poker at the casino establishment. The table was linked to a progressive jackpot prize. Steven qualified for it by placing the $5 side bet and by landing the Royal Flush on the flop.

Royal Flush is notoriously difficult to land, but Steven managed it which is why he’s $1,018,643 richer. He’s another jackpot winner at the casino. Landing the Royal Flush is no small feat which is possibly the reason why Steven was rewarded the jackpot prize. Like any jackpot winner, he was surprised to have won such an amazing prize. But with Lady Luck on your side, anything is possible.

Conclusion

Progressive jackpots remain some of the most popular jackpots of today and winners like Steven L. make people continue to go after them. Steven was lucky to have landed a Royal Flush on the flop, on a $5 side bet at the Prairie Band Casino and Resort in Kansas. That’s why he’s another progressive jackpot winner at the casino.
