Mexican man wins more than $920,000 at Planet Hollywood hotel-casino poker table
The easing of coronavirus restrictions has significantly improved attendance at gambling establishments in the American gambling capital, Las Vegas. This circumstance had a positive effect not only on the profitability of casinos, but also on customer winnings. Thus, one of them practically became a millionaire after playing a few hands at the poker table.
The episode took place within the walls of the Planet Hollywood hotel-casino, which is managed by the gambling and hospitality giant Caesars Entertainment. According to the establishment’s administration, a visitor from Mexico, Edgar Fabian Estrada Madrigal, decided to test his luck in the casino’s poker room.
The game began, the croupier made several hands, and the stakes gradually increased. About half an hour passed, and the Mexican saw a straight flush combination in front of him. It turned out that Edgar Fabian Estrada Madrigal had a set of cards in his hands, which provided him a payout of $920,728. After all, the game was played under pai gow rules, and the table itself participated in a progressive jackpot program.
“When I saw the hand, I couldn’t believe my eyes. A few seconds just fell out of my life,” said Edgar Fabian.
The lucky winner of the big winnings also admitted that he already has plans for this money. First of all, he will begin to invest in various securities and funds. In addition, part of the funds will be spent on his education, support for family and friends, as well as the construction of new housing.
