Las Vegas Player Wins Over $200,000 Jackpot

The Strip has many casinos to offer and there are winners and losers daily. Some get to hit the jackpot while others are looking to get it or at least get another prize. But prizes come in all shapes and sizes and recently a Vegas player managed to get the $200,000 jackpot.

The Sunset Station Hotel and Casino was the place where the player enjoyed Pai Gow and managed to place a side bet that qualified the player for the progressive jackpot. To the player’s surprise, the jackpot landed and the player was the lucky recipient of over $200,000. The player decided to remain anonymous.

How a Dollar Turns Into $200,000

Progressive jackpots are damn hard to land, and the thing that makes them impossible to land is that no one knows when it’s going to land. Usually, it’s linked to a bunch of slot machines, but it can also be linked to table games.

As it happened, the Sunset Hotel and Casino has a progressive jackpot linked to a bunch of table games. Pai Gow Poker was one of the games linked to the jackpot and it’s the one that the anonymous player liked playing.

Poker is a popular card game that many people enjoy all over the world. They can do so in venues such as the Sunset, or they can do so online at online casinos. Both kinds of casinos offer a variety of poker games because all poker players don’t like playing the same poker game.

The Vegas player enjoyed playing Pai Gow Poker and that’s why the person went for that table. The game lasted for a while and the person won some and lost some each round. The guest at the casino managed to turn over the outcome by landing a 7-card Straight Flush. But the person also did something else.

The player decided to place a $1 side bet to qualify for the progressive jackpot. So, when the player hit the Straight Flush the player also got the progressive jackpot and managed to turn $1 into $210,097. The guest’s life will be a lot better now that the guest has a progressive jackpot under their belt.

Conclusion

Jackpots are hard to land and this is also true of progressive jackpots. But when they land the winner gets a huge prize to celebrate with. The casino staff and other players congratulated the anonymous winner on completing the nearly impossible task.
