LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A lucky Las Vegas visitor cashed in an almost $330,000 jackpot while playing pai gow poker at a downtown area casino.

A Hawaiian resident was vacationing last week at the California hotel-casino when he hit a seven-card royal flush while playing the poker game that resulted in a $327,572 payday, according to a property spokesperson.

The Aug. 22 winner requested to remain anonymous, but he joins two other big winners at Boyd Gaming properties. As this was the third major jackpot hit within the last three months, according to the company.
