6-figure table game jackpots hit on, off the Strip

Whether it was three or seven cards, two lucky visitors to Las Vegas are thrilled they fell their way this weekend.

A first-time visitor from Utah won nearly $250,000 playing pai gow poker on Friday morning at The Orleans.

The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, had bet $1 when he hit the rare natural seven-card straight flush, winning him a progressive jackpot of more than $223,000 at 1:46 a.m., according to a Boyd Gaming spokesperson.

The player also placed a fortune bonus side bet of $5 that won him an extra $25,000. In total, the guest won $248,396 during his visit.

At Paris Las Vegas, a visitor from California won a $120,000 jackpot on Blazing 7s Blackjack just after midnight Sunday, according to a Caesars Entertainment spokesperson.

The man said he is expecting a grandchild soon and will spoil the newest addition with gifts as well as share his good fortune with the rest of the family.

Both winners chose to remain anonymous.
