$499K table game jackpot hits at Las Vegas Strip casino

One Omar Moreno patrolled center field for the “We Are Family” 1979 World Series champion Pittsburgh Pirates. Another Omar Moreno had a very good weekend on the Las Vegas Strip.

We will focus on the latter.

Moreno of Santa Ana, California, won $499,171 Sunday night after hitting the Mega Progressive jackpot on Three Card Poker at the Flamingo, according to a Caesars Entertainment spokesperson.

The winning hand was a five card royal flush. Moreno said he was visiting Las Vegas on vacation to celebrate a friend’s birthday and won the money after 30 minutes at the table. He plans on using the winnings to purchase a home.
