Venetian Las Vegas guest dealt million-dollar hand

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Thursday evening, July 21, a guest at The Venetian Las Vegas was dealt a million-dollar hand. The guest, who wished to remain anonymous, was playing Three Card Poker and was dealt a spade royal flush. The guest made the $5 side bet making them eligible to win the mega tier of the resort’s Millionaire Progressive for $1,040,235.

In late 2018, The Venetian Resort launched one of the largest table game progressives in the city. A player becomes eligible for the mega tier of the Millionaire Progressive, which begins at $1 million and increases incrementally once the player makes the $5 side bet. To win, the player must be dealt a natural spade royal flush, and a millionaire is born.

The progressive is available on several table games: Ultimate Texas Hold’em, Three Card Poker, Let it Ride, Crazy 4 Poker and Mississippi Stud in both The Venetian and The Palazzo casinos. The Millionaire Progressive has minted 10 millionaires since inception.
