Aliante Guest Wins More Than $530,000 Pai Gow Poker Progressive Jackpot

LAS VEGASBoyd Gaming awarded one of the highest Pai Gow Poker progressive jackpots of the year – more than a half a million dollars – to a Las Vegas local at Aliante Casino + Hotel + Spa on Sunday, October 4.

Jesus, a frequent visitor to Aliante, was playing Face Up Pai Gow Poker at around noon when he hit a seven-card straight flush with a joker, capturing a Pai Gow Poker progressive jackpot of $531,639. Jesus, who had been planning to refinance his house this week, said he would instead pay off his mortgage with his winnings.

Six Boyd Gaming destinations participated in the Company’s regional linked Pai Gow Poker progressive, including Aliante, The Orleans, Gold Coast, Suncoast, Sam’s Town and Cannery. 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 properties’ Pai Gow Poker progressive jackpot will now reset at $150,000.
