Prairie Band Casino Win
He was dealt a King, a Jack of Hearts and the flop gave him the extremely lucky 10 of Hearts and Queen of Hearts. This matched his five-card Royal Flush. According to Kansas TV station WIBW, Steven was dealt four cards in a row not long before, which earned him the Minor Progressive in Ultimate Texas Hold’em.
Steven was clearly very fortunate today. However, WIBW cited the casino manager as saying that 661 progressive winners had been made since the Linked Progressive was introduced to Ultimate Texas Hold’em or Mississippi Stud tables. In total, the casino has paid out more $3.9 million in progressive wins. Steven’s win is still one of the largest.
