Spending $5 never felt so good.
A guest playing Ultimate Texas Hold’em at The Venetian was dealt a spade royal flush, earning $1,042,938, according to a company spokesperson.
The jackpot hit Tuesday night, and the winner chose to remain anonymous. Making the $5 side bet made the bettor eligible to win the mega tier of the resort’s Millionaire Progressive.
To win, the player must be dealt a natural spade royal flush. It is the eighth millionaire since the progressive jackpot was launched in 2018 at The Venetian and Palazzo.
