Gambler’s Royal Flush Sees $5 Punt Turn Into $1.1million
27 Feb

Frank Nagy’s Royal Flush netted him more than $1.1million this month, and the Atlantic City casino regular made sure the dealers got in on the new-found riches, tipping them $50,000 of his jackpot win!

It was the biggest win of the Tropicana Casino regular’s life, and it was also one of the biggest progressive jackpot in the history of the casino’s parent company, Caesars Entertainment.

Building up since it was last won in August 2019, Nagy’s chosen casino game of Four Card Poker was one of six that make up the Tropicana’s progressive jackpot.

The Monmouth County man’s $5 sidebet joined those from games such as Let It Ride, Mississippi Stud Poker, Texas Hold’em Poker, Three Card Poker and Ultimate Texas Hold’em to build up the $1million+ pot.

When the Royal Flush was dealt to him, Nagy was a newly-minted millionaire, and made sure the dealers at his favourite casino didn’t miss out on the celebration – handing over $50k to be shared among them.

“We are thrilled to celebrate this huge win with one of our long-time customers at Tropicana,” said Steve Callender, regional president for Caesars Entertainment Atlantic City.

There have been numerous big jackpot wins at casino poker games over the years, one Texas Hold’em Poker player’s strike at the Crown Perth Casino in 2019 worth AUD$3.6million (US$2.5million) breaking the Australian record.

That same year saw a lucky Pai Gow player pocket more than $2.3million in Las Vegas when he hit the Face Up Progressive Jackpot with a 7-card straight flush in diamonds.

The huge win came at another Caesars Entertainment-owned property, the Paris Las Vegas, where an anonymous player scooped the massive $2,330,133.44 jackpot, which had built up across 48 linked Pai Gow tables in 13 Caesars statewide venues.
