A lucky Caesars Rewards member hit a Mega Progressive Jackpot on Face Up Pai Gow for $1,393,273 at Harrah’s Las Vegas on Sunday, Nov. 14.
The guest, Quoclong Pham, is a professional player from Vancouver, Wash. with Caesars Rewards Platinum Tier Status who was in town on business and vacation. After just sitting down to play at a Face Up Pai Gow table, Pham opened his hand and was in disbelief as he became a millionaire with a Seven Card Straight Flush with a joker.
His initial reaction was, “It’s just surreal. It’ll hit me tomorrow once it hits the account.” Pham has never hit a jackpot of this size before, and he plans to save his winnings.
