Not a bad payoff for less than 30 minutes of work.

Troy Bright, visiting Las Vegas from Dana Point, California, won more than $1.1 million on his second hand of Face Up Pai Gow Poker at The Cromwell Saturday night, according to a Caesars news release.

He was playing at the poker table for less than 30 minutes and won the jackpot on his second hand, according to Caesars.

Bright was visiting to attend the Raiders game against the New York Jets at Allegiant Stadium on Sunday. He said he plans on using the winnings to help his family and spend time with them.

Across the street at Caesars Palace, a Caesars Rewards member struck luck after hitting two slots jackpots within one hour, totaling $405,000. The guest hit their first jackpot for $105,000 on Sunday at 1:37 a.m. and won an additional jackpot for $300,000 at 2:37 a.m.
