Ronnie Rivers Lands $500K Jackpot in Vegas

Ronnie Rivers Lands $500K Jackpot in Vegas

Sports people never seem to stop fascinating us on the field. If you take football as an example, you have many legendary players with a proven track record, but there are also some younglings that are looking to make it to the top which is why they work so hard and keep doing their best.

One such player happens to be Ronnie Rivers and so far he’s doing pretty well. When he’s not out on the field looking to break his current record, he likes to spend some time with the family and some time with himself. He happens to enjoy casino games and poker in particular. That’s how he managed to land a jackpot of $514,837 recently.

A Good Football Season, and a Lucky Night Out

Ronnie Rivers, a running back for the Los Angeles Rams, almost doubled his rookie salary in a single hand of three-card poker at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. The incredible hand resulted in a “Mega Progressive Jackpot” of $514,837 after he pulled a royal flush.

Rivers, a former Fresno State star, was undrafted after his senior season where he had 788 yards and seven touchdowns. This season, he played with both the Rams and the Arizona Cardinals and had 9 carries for 21 yards in two games with the Rams. He signed a one-year deal worth $705,000 with the Rams but ended up making $515,670 after the season, according to Spotrac. His one hand of three-card poker was just a few hundred dollars short of matching that mark and he is due to make $870,000 next season.

Rivers was in Las Vegas to celebrate his and his mother’s birthday when he hit the jackpot and plans to use the winnings to purchase a house. Celebrating a birthday by almost matching your yearly income is certainly an incredible accomplishment.

This kind of accomplishment shows you just how competitive Rivers can be. With lady luck on his side, he managed to land a jackpot, a progressive one at that. These kinds of jackpots are pretty difficult to land which is what makes his accomplishment more astonishing.

With such an accomplishment, the young running back has put himself on the map when it comes to his private life. It seems that he’s successful both professionally and personally. Vegas will remember his win as he’s another jackpot winner on the list.

Conclusion

The running back has proven himself on the field and will continue to make a name for himself in the world of football. Recently, he’s also proven himself in the world of casinos by landing a $514,837 jackpot prize while playing poker. In other words, success seems to follow Rivers everywhere.
