Massive Pai Gow Poker win at The Orleans

25 January 2021

(PRESS RELEASE) -- A first-time visitor from Utah tried his luck at The Orleans Hotel and Casino and hit a nearly $250,000 regional linked Pai Gow Poker progressive jackpot on Friday, 22 January.

The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, was playing Pai Gow Poker and bet $1 when he hit the rare natural seven-card straight flush, winning him a Pai Gow Poker progressive jackpot of more than $223,000 at 1:46 a.m. The player also placed a fortune bonus side bet of $5 that won him an extra $25,000. In total, the guest won $248,396 during his visit.

Six Boyd Gaming destinations participated in the Company’s regional linked Pai Gow Poker progressive, including The Orleans, Aliante, Gold Coast, Suncoast, Sam’s Town and Cannery. By offering the Pai Gow Poker progressive at multiple destinations citywide, players have a shot at winning a much larger jackpot than individual properties could offer.

The properties’ Pai Gow Poker progressive jackpot has reset at more than $150,000.

In October 2020, Jesus, a Las Vegas local and frequent visitor to Aliante Casino + Hotel + Spa, was playing Face Up Pai Gow Poker when he hit a seven-card straight flush with a joker, capturing a Pai Gow Poker progressive jackpot of $531,639. The more than half-a-million-dollar jackpot was one of the highest Pai Gow Poker progressive jackpots of the year, and he used his winnings to pay off his mortgage.
