LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Sunday evening was a lucky night for a gambler at The Venetian Resort Las Vegas.

For the sixth time since its inception late last year, The Millionaire Progressive crowned another winner.

A guest, who wished to remain anonymous, was dealt a spade royal flush while playing three card poker at The Palazzo casino, and won $1,013,539.

The Millionaire Progressive, which begins at $1 million and increases incrementally, is eligible by placing a $5 side bet.

To win, the player must be dealt a natural royal flush, and a millionaire is born.

The progressive is available on several table games: Ultimate Texas Hold’em, Three Card Poker, Let it Ride, Caribbean Stud, Crazy 4 Poker, and Mississippi Stud in both The Venetian and The Palazzo casinos.

The Millionaire Progressive reset after the latest win and is now more than $1,000,000.
