Leon Tsoukernik, the owner of King's Resort in Czech Republic, may not have won some money in the Casinos Austria Poker Tour (CAPT) Seefeld High Roller, but Lady Luck had another great plan in store for him shortly after that as he sat down to play on one of the slot machines in Casino Seefeld to play the popular game Book of Ra.
This is not the first trip to the CAPT for the 46-year-old Czech entrepreneur and art collector, with his first-ever live cash win recorded back in 2011 when he settled in 2nd place in the CAPT Innsbruck Main Event for €33,020 ($47,248).
For a casino owner, how to win big at slots? Bet big, of course! And that's what Tsoukernik did here, by playing €1,000 a spin, he managed to win the machine's jackpot prize worth €1,372,500 (approx. $1,530,500)!
If this slots win was added to his list of poker cashes, it would place 2nd, just behind his 4th place finish in the 2017 Super High Roller Bowl for $1,800,000.

Tsoukernik was also in the news recently, after buying the Casino Atrium at the Hilton Hotel Prague, home of the European Poker Tour Prague stop. This was where he got his second biggest tournament score of €741,000 in his poker career, after winning the 2016 EPT Prague €50,000 Super High Roller event.
