$920K table game jackpot hits at Strip casino

Updated September 2, 2021 - 8:46 pm

A visitor from Mexico found Planet Hollywood so nice, he has visited twice. And the second time around paid off greatly.

Edgar Fabian Estrada Madrigal hit a straight flush on Face Up Pai Gow to win the $920,728 mega progressive jackpot Tuesday night at the Strip casino, according to a Caesars Entertainment spokesperson.

Madrigal, who had visited and enjoyed his Planet Hollywood experience before, played for about 30 minutes before the winning hand appeared. He said his first thought was complete disbelief.

With the money, he plans on investing, setting some aside for education, supporting his family and splurging on a luxury apartment.
