An Auckland poker player surprised people as he transformed a $35 hand into several million dollars in 25th July at Sky City. She won one of the biggest progressive jackpots at New Zealand’s Sky City Casino. The winner visits the casino with her spouse at least once in a couple of months as confirmed by the staff. She hit the jackpot through a Royal Flush upon which a cheque was handed over to her worth $1,108,585.60. In total, she had placed $35 on a single hand and managed a Royal Flush. And, the odds for the same are 649,740 to one which made her win the full jackpot.
Michael Ahearne, the group chief operating officer, said casino staff were electrified and could not believe that the lady won the jackpot. He said it’s a situation of right hand and right place as the progressive jackpot has seldom been so big in the past. It is so good to see a player win such a huge amount through a single hand. This has become the buzzing news and the staff is only talking about it.
The supervisor of the casino said the poker table was filled with people and all players were highly excited and happy for the winner, although she was in a sense of shock after achieving a full jackpot. The winner distributed small amount of money to other players and it was indeed a good gesture said the supervisor.
Caribbean Stud Poker is a traditional poker wherein players are given one hand of 5 cards and have the play against the house so as to gain a 5 card poker hand bigger than that of the dealer. One can also take part in a progressive jackpot bonus using a side bet. The player should be dealt with a Royal Flush and the highest hand in Caribbean Stud Poker wins the entire jackpot.
