A local guest turned his visit to Aliante Casino + Hotel + Spa into a more than $114,000 payday when he won Boyd Gaming’s regional linked Pai Gow Poker progressive jackpot on Sunday, June 13.
The lucky visitor, who requested to remain anonymous, was playing Face Up Pai Gow Poker and bet $1 when he hit a seven-card straight flush in clubs, winning him a Pai Gow Poker progressive jackpot of $92,993 at approximately 1:20 a.m. The player also placed a fortune bonus side bet that won him an extra $21,186. In total, the guest won $114,179 during his visit.
Six Boyd Gaming destinations participated in the Company’s regional linked Pai Gow Poker progressive, including Aliante, The Orleans, Gold Coast, Cannery, Sam’s Town and Suncoast. 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.
The properties’ Pai Gow Poker progressive jackpot has reset at $75,000.
Less than a year ago, another win took place at Aliante when Jesus, a Las Vegas local and frequent visitor to the property, was playing Face Up Pai Gow Poker when he hit a seven-card straight flush with a joker, capturing a Pai Gow Poker progressive jackpot of $531,639. The more than half-a-million-dollar jackpot was one of the highest Pai Gow Poker progressive jackpots of 2020, and he used his winnings to pay off his mortgage.
