A Las Vegas local resident made a trip to The Orleans Hotel and Casino he’ll never forget, after hitting Boyd Gaming’s regional linked Pai Gow Poker progressive jackpot for a payday of nearly $340,000 on Friday, 29 July.
The Orleans regular, who requested to remain anonymous, was playing Face Up Pai Gow Poker with his wife late Friday afternoon when he hit a seven-card straight flush (two to eight of spades with a joker), capturing a Pai Gow Poker progressive jackpot of $338,703.99. He also placed a dragon bonus side bet that won him an additional $5,000.
Six Boyd Gaming destinations are participants in the company’s regional linked Pai Gow Poker progressive, including The Orleans, Gold Coast, Aliante, Cannery, Sam’s Town and Suncoast. 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 huge win is the first Pai-Gow progressive jackpot since July 2021, when a lucky player won a $119,000 prize at the Orleans. Boyd Gaming’s Pai Gow Poker progressive jackpot has reset at $75,168
