A New Yorker who has remained unidentified has hit the mega progressive jackpot and skipped up a whooping $436,000 prize at Paris Las Vegas, joining the roster of recent winners on The Strip

According to a press release from Caesars Entertainment, a very lucky player from Middle Village, New York enjoyed a particularly fun and lucrative gambling session at Paris Las Vegas Casino earlier in the week. 

$436,000 Jackpot at Three-Card Poker

The poker player, whose identity has remained undisclosed, was in town to show support for his nephew who was playing in the World Series of Poker

Much to his surprise, the man hit the Mega Progressive jackpot with the help of a royal flush while engaged in a three-card poker game. 

He left the casino $436,588 richer, as the press release mentioned. 

When asked what he plans to do with the unexpected win, he said he wants to invest it. 

Impressive Roster of Winners on the Las Vegas Strip 

In mid-May, a young man who was celebrating his 21st birthday in Sin City took home a surprising $362,640 jackpot

Half an hour. That’s all Damon Howell, a resident of Union City, Ohio, needed to hit the Mega Progressive Jackpot at a game of Ultimate Texas Hold’em at the LINQ Hotel+ Experience on The Strip. 

While still “overwhelmed with shock and disbelief,” the young man didn’t provide a lot of details regarding what he plans to do with the money. However, he hinted that he might buy a house. 

In March, another lucky player won $165,000 while firing up the slot machine reels at 5 am at Caesars Palace Las Vegas, kept playing, and ended up striking a breathtaking $545,000 jackpot just five hours later

Just a week before the fabulous double win was recorded, a guest at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino grabbed a jackpot with more than $1.2 million after hitting the Mega Progressive Jackpot at a game of Pai Gow Poker

Similar to the double win story, in April, a player in Las Vegas won more than $1.36 million across not one, not two, not three, but four slot machine jackpots within two weeks. 

His first three big wins were recorded in just three hours.

Caesars Palace described the player’s impressive winning streak as “a remarkable feat!”

The first win of $125,000 came at a Dragon Link slot machine in the Caesars Palace casino followed by a second win of $383,500 on the same game. 

Three hours after the first win, he hit the third jackpot of $159,250, followed by the fourth and final one of $692,500

Earlier this week, analyst Barry Jonas of Truist Securities spoke about the strong performance recorded by the Las Vegas Strip, while detailing his optimistic overview regarding the gambling hub’s growth prospects.
