A lucky Caesars Rewards member hit a Mega Progressive Jackpot on Face Up Pai Gow for $920,728 at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on Tuesday, Aug. 31.
The guest, Edgar Fabian Estrada Madrigal, was visiting the property by way of Mexico.
Madrigal had visited Planet Hollywood once before on vacation and enjoyed it so much he made plans for another visit this summer. After approximately 30 minutes of playing at the same Face Up Pai Gow table, he became a near millionaire with a winning hand suited with diamonds.
Madrigal’s first thought was complete disbelief. With the money, he plans on investing, setting some aside for education, supporting his family, and splurging on a luxury apartment – something he’d never thought he’d be able to treat himself to.
“On behalf of the whole Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino team, we extend our congratulations to our huge jackpot winner from last night,” said SVP and General Manager of Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, Jason Gregorec. “It was great news to find out Mr. Madrigal is a repeat visitor and traveled all the way from Mexico. Stories like this inspire us to continue to create unforgettable experiences in hospitality, gaming, and entertainment for visitors across the world.”
