A player has won a $1.1 million jackpot at the Venetian Casino Hotel in Las Vegas.

Last month, we were excited to report that the progressive jackpot Mega Moolah set a new win record and reminded us that it is possible to win a lot of cash on a slot game. But that's no reason to assume that online slots are the only games where you can get rich on a moment’s notice. This is indeed possible on a live casino table, as we will report in today's news.

At the Venetian Casino Hotel

On February 1st, Kevin Ripski from Ontario, Canada visited the gambling city of Las Vegas. As a lover of poker, he sat down at a Caribbean Stud poker table at the Venetian Casino, located right in the centre of the famous Las Vegas Strip.

The Venetian Jackpot

Royal flush hand

He was playing Caribbean Stud Poker when the dealer revealed his cards to be a royal flush, which awarded him the jackpot.

At this particular table it was possible to make an additional bet for the chance at a progressive jackpot. The player had always made this bet and in one game the strategy paid off. When the dealer revealed his cards, they showed a royal flush and the lucky winner collected the jackpot worth $1,144,079.

If you want to try your own luck at a table game, you can find many games in the online casinos: SlotsMillion, LeoVegas and Mr Green.
