Player Hits $500K Jackpot With Royal Flush at Rivers Casino
A poker player at the Rivers Casino & Resort in Schenectady won an impressive $497,152 from a single hand after hitting the table’s progressive jackpot.
He drew a 10, a King and an Ace of Spades to combine with a Queen and Jack of Spades in the dealer’s bonus hand to form a Royal Flush and hit the jackpot. There were four other players at the table who had bet on the progressive and they each received a $5,000 ‘envy’ payout. The player has chosen to remain anonymous but it is certain that he will have celebrated his win.
Rivers is one of three new casinos in upstate New York and it has paid out nearly $20 million in jackpots since it opened last year. The casino is home to 67 gaming tables, 16 poker tables and 1,150 slot machines.
