It was a Labor Day to remember at The Venetian Resort Las Vegas when a guest who wished to remain anonymous turned a $7.00 bet into more than $2m. The guest was playing Buffalo Diamond Extreme by Aristocrat Gaming when the Grand Jackpot hit in the bonus round to trigger a payout of $2,158,526.
In addition, the major tier of the resort’s Millionaire Progressive hit twice recently. On August 6, a guest, who wished to remain anonymous was dealt a heart royal flush while playing Mississippi Stud. By making the side bet, they were eligible for the major tier of the Millionaire Progressive and won $259,589.
On July 30, a lucky guest was dealt a club royal flush while playing Texas Hold’em and won the major tier of the Millionaire Progressive on Sunday, July 30. Gustavo Morales from Illinois made the $5 side bet making him eligible to win the major tier of the resort’s Millionaire Progressive for $269,611.
In late 2018, The Venetian Resort launched Millionaire Progressive, one of the largest table games progressives in Las Vegas. A player becomes eligible for the mega tier of the Millionaire Progressive, which begins at $1m and increases incrementally, once the player makes the $5 side bet. To win, the player must then be dealt a natural spade royal flush. 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 11 millionaires since inception.
