Las Vegas Poker Player Hits Record Pai Gow Poker Progressive Jackpot of $6.4m
A life-changing win
A poker player in Las Vegas has hit the biggest Pai Gow progressive jackpot of all time. Thomas Evans Zanot won the $6.4m jackpot on Saturday night at the Flamingo Online Casino resort from a stake of just $5.
It will be hard to beat this as one of the biggest Online Casino jackpot wins of any kind in Las Vegas this year. The Caesars Entertainment-owned Flamingo tweeted a picture of Zanot with his oversized jackpot check:
An experienced winner
Talking about his big Pai Gow jackpot win on Twitter, Zanot explained that he had lost about $375 over the 11 or so hours of playing before he won the jackpot. A picture posted by an onlooker on Twitter shows the hand that ultimately Zanot won the life-changing sum (the Online Casino later rearranged the hand for the photo-op):
Pai Gow poker is a game that players play against the house, with each person dealt seven cards. After a draw, players choose a low hand with two cards and a high hand with five cards in an attempt to beat the dealer’s hand. Online Casinos often offer side bets as part of Pai Gow poker hands, such as the one that saw Zanot win a progressive jackpot.
