wow that's sweet... 2.9 millions of dollaros is really astonishing win, of course as always this shows just one side of the picture. maybe this same dude is down lets say $5 millions already this year, so he can still be in red even after this win.

No he can do a lot of side bets with this winning or play some interesting live events. But this big cash winning was the dream of every player and 2.9 millions are amazing. I´m waiting since many years for a royal flush, but i´m sure that my opponent have only 10 big blinds in his stack...

dont know how much he had to pay, but even if it was 10k$ it is worth it a lot IMO just play evry single suited broadway cards and your chances are bigger...even when they 3-bet or 4-bet you it was worth to see flop even with TJs

The conditions for winning were certainly not very simple and this player managed to do it ... almost three million dollars a night a wonderful result ... my congratulations to a happy player and now the most important thing is not to try to win as much ... it will not work out

These progressive jackpots in casino worth it some times.
I dont know if it happens in all of them, but they have also smallest fixed prizes for lower
than royal flush.
But imagine playing a low buy in game leaving with that cash Smile

This is the stuff that dreams are made of and it is nice to see someone winning big for such a small outlay. This gives all us smaller gamblers hopes of winning a life changing sum

Huge congratulations go out to a lucky punter who scooped over $2.9 million in a game of poker at Crown Casino. A weekend of a lifetime! There are tons of things he can do with $2.9 million. If I had a few million dollars to spare, I would move to South Africa.

yeah like some dudes said- playing progressive slots is a good idea, sure realistically playing slots is a terrible idea as a whole (for that matter playing any casino game is a terrible idea in the long run), but with those progressive slots if you manage to win big, it is usually very big...

This is so huge money really, I think no one of us in this forum have no idea what it feels to win so much money and what you can do with it. People can buy a new home, or maybe evn two or three, stop working and travel the world as much as they like, wow so amazing to win money like this.

now come to think of it, if i would win 3 millions of dollaros one day for no reason at all, i would probably buy myself an epic amount of land and start growing weed there. you know every dude has to think of time when he is old and wrinkly and money is hard to come by, therefore a field of weed is a handy thing to have in this situation...

They have to pay in order for the people keep going to casinos.
But of course that doesnt mean, that they wont try to find something to say no
in some cases Blink
What a better way for a casino to get the jackpot back to their own pockets.

2.9 million, even in Australian dollars is a huge amount of money. Good on the player for taking part and good on the club for coming up with that idea.....an idea that already exists in a number of poker sites..... keep trying your luck cos eventually it will come.... and it's nice cos you don't often win a load in a hand with a royal flush as the winning hand.
