A lucky Caesars Rewards member, Sergio Ochoa, hit a major jackpot on Three Card Poker for $249,758 at Harrah’s Las Vegas on Monday, July 12.
Ochoa had been playing at Harrah’s Las Vegas to pass the time as his flight back to San Jose was delayed. The delay turned into a pay day, when he hit a royal flush that secured him nearly a quarter-million dollars.
“On behalf of Harrah’s Las Vegas, we congratulate our most recent jackpot winner on his big win,” said Dan Walsh, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Harrah’s Las Vegas. “It’s especially exciting to see the smiles and celebrations that take place on our casino floor following a jackpot and we hope to see Mr. Ochoa again soon.”
Last month, the recently renovated Harrah’s Las Vegas saw jackpot winners take home payouts of $1.3 million, $412,911 and $138,894, respectively. Another lucky guest took home $2.4 million when they hit the Pai Gow Progressive jackpot at the Silver Legacy Resort Casino located in Reno last week.
