LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A woman vacationing in Las Vegas from Hawaii won a six-figure jackpot playing pai gow poker at a downtown casino.

The woman, who says she wants to remain anonymous, hit a seven-card straight flush and bonus on Monday at Main Street Station Casino Brewery and Hotel, the casino says.

Her payday was more than $420,000.

This is the third major win in the last five months by a Hawaiian guest at one of Boyd Gaming’s downtown destinations, the casino says.

On Nov. 23, another Hawaiian resident won a more than $1 million jackpot playing Wheel of Fortune slots at Fremont Hotel and Casino.

On Oct. 7, a long-time Boyd Gaming customer from Hawaii took home a $930,000 jackpot playing the Madonna slot game at Main Street Station.
