A table game player, identified as Kevin Ripski from Ontario, Canada, has become a millionaire after he hit a progressive jackpot on the Las Vegas Strip. He has won the Sands Millionaire Progressive jackpot at The Venetian hotel-casino.
He was playing his favourite game Caribbean Stud when the dealer flipped over his cards revealing a royal flush.
“I let the dealer flip over my cards, so it’s a surprise at the end of the hand,” Ripski said.
And what a surprise it was. The natural royal flush helped Ripski cash the $1,114,079 jackpot.
“I always play the bonus bet for the very reason if you hit it and are not playing the bonus, you will regret it for the rest of your life,” Ripski said.
The progressive jackpot is available on several table games at The Venetian and The Palazzo casinos.
“I’m a huge Philadelphia Flyers and Eagles fan. So, I will be attending some games in the near future. Also, I might do a little traveling and play a little extra golf,” Ripski said, after winning the money.
