Tuesday evening, Sept. 21, a guest at The Venetian® Resort Las Vegas was dealt a million dollar hand. The guest, who wished to remain anonymous, was playing Ultimate Texas Hold’em and was dealt a spade royal flush.
The guest made the $5 side bet making them eligible to win the mega tier of the resort’s Millionaire Progressive for $1,042,938.
In late 2018, The Venetian Resort launched one of the largest table games progressives in the city. A player becomes eligible for the mega tier of the Millionaire Progressive, which begins at $1 million and increases incrementally, once the player makes the $5 side bet. To win, the player must be dealt a natural spade royal flush, and a millionaire is born! The progressive is available on several table games: Ultimate Texas Hold’em, Three Card Poker, Let it Ride, Crazy 4 Poker, and Mississippi Stud in both The Venetian and The Palazzo® casinos. The Millionaire Progressive has minted eight millionaires since inception.
