Rivers Casino and Resort in Schenectady said it just paid out the largest jackpot since opened in February. A lucky poker gambler drew into a royal flush at a Three Card Poker table with a 10, a king, and ace of spades, which combined with a queen and jack of spades to win $497,152!
Four other players at the table bet the progressive, and each received a $5,000 “envy” payout.
The casino said it has paid out nearly $20 million in jackpots since it opened. A jackpot is a win of $1,200 or more.
