LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A Las Vegas local made a trip to The Orleans Hotel and Casino he’ll never forget on Friday.
The man, who chose to remain anonymous, is a regular at The Orleans who hit Boyd Gaming’s regional linked Pai Gow Poker progressive jackpot for a payday of nearly $340,000, Boyd Gaming shared in a press release.
He was playing Face Up Pai Gow Poker with his wife late Friday afternoon when he hit a seven-card straight flush (two to eight of spades with a joker), capturing a Pai Gow Poker progressive jackpot of $338,703.99. He also placed a dragon bonus side bet that won him an additional $5,000, Boyd Gaming says.
Six Boyd Gaming destinations are participants in the company’s regional linked Pai Gow Poker progressive, including:
- The Orleans
- Gold Coast Hotel and Casino
- Aliante Casino Hotel Spa
- Cannery Casino & Hotel
- Sam’s Town Hotel & Gambling Hall
- Suncoast Hotel and Casino
By offering the Pai Gow Poker progressive at multiple destinations citywide, players have a shot at winning a much larger jackpot than individual properties could offer, Boyd Gaming says.
Friday's win is the first Pai-Gow progressive jackpot since July 2021, when a lucky player won a $119,000 prize at The Orleans.
Boyd Gaming’s Pai Gow Poker progressive jackpot has reset at $75,168, a company spokesperson said.
