There were two jackpot winners at the same downtown casino on Sunday. One, a Las Vegas local and the other, an Electric Daisy Carnival attendee.

The Las Vegan won nearly $220,000 while playing Pai Gow poker at the Plaza Hotel & Casino, the casino said in a news release.

The casino said his buy in was $200, and he hit a 7-card straight flush to get a total progressive hit of over $206,000 with a Fortune Bonus bet for $12,500.

Later that day, a guest from California who was attending EDC won a $45,000 progressive jackpot on a Buffalo slot machine after placing a $2.25 bet.
