Local Las Vegas Player Wins 100K Royal Flush at The Orleans

Royal Flush Video Poker Slot MachineOne lucky local video poker player, who requested to remain anonymous, played big to win even bigger at The Orleans Hotel Casino Sunday.

On the $25 video poker machine, playing a five-coin $125 hand, the bettor hit a natural royal flush to win an astonishing $100,000 jackpot.

The player drew the last two necessary cards, an ace and a queen of hearts around 9AM on Sunday, according to publicist Michael Abante. The player was already holding a 10 of hearts, jack, and king.

This was the second $100,000 jackpot won at The Orleans just within the past two months. The Scientific Games Dancing Drums slot jackpot earned Texas visitor Raymond a $100,000 payout on Dec. 1st. He cashed in on his $26 bet when he selected three matching Grand Fu Babies.

Another Big Win Across the Valley

Sunday was a lucky day in Vegas it seems, because another lucky slots player hit big on the Wheel of Fortune slot machine at the South Point Hotel Casino, winning a $464,287 jackpot on a mere $1.25 wager. The winner also chose to remain anonymous, and there’s no telling whether they are a Las Vegas local or a visitor.
