Canada Casino Player wins $3M Table Game Jackpot after just a Few Hands

A casino player in Canada has won over CA$3 million (US$2.24 million) after playing a progressive table game for just a few minutes.

Claude Martin and his wife (pictured) celebrate his $3 million win at Casino de Montreal on January 20, 2023. Martin's progressive jackpot was the casino's richest table game payout in its 30-year history, says Casino de Montreal.

Biggest Casino in Canada
Casino de Montreal is the biggest casino in Canada, with over 3,000 slot machines and 115 table games. It opened in October 1993, and it is owned and operated by Loto-Quebec, a crown enterprise.

Claude Martin, a resident of Lanaudiere, had plans to attend a Roch Voisine show at the casino's Cabaret music venue, but first decided to grace the casino floor.

Martin shared that after having dinner with his wife at Le Montreal Seafood and Grill, they both sat down at a 3 Card Poker table to kill some time before the concert. After playing just a few hands, Martin was dealt a royal flush in spades. The hand won the table game's progressive jackpot, which at the time reached CA$3,056,175!

Emotions got so intense that the couple didn't make it to the Canadian singer's concert.


Progressive Jackpot
Loto-Quebec's progressive table game jackpot is offered at its four casinos. The jackpot is funded from play on 3 Card Poker and Ultimate Texas Hold'em tables. The min bet on 3 Card Poker is $25, while on Ultimate Texas Hold'em it is $20.

To join in the progressive jackpot, a player must put a separate $5 side bet. The jackpot can only be won when a player gets a royal flush on either game with the additional $5 side bet wagered.

The progressive jackpot is offered at Casino de Montreal, Casino du Lac-Leamy, Casino de Charlevoix, and Casino de Mont-Tremblant.

Still Keeping Day Job
Martin, in his early 60s, is a construction worker.

Despite his age and the grueling job he has, Martin told the casino representatives that he has no plans to quit his day job, but of course, he does intend to splurge a bit of his freshly-won wealth.

Martin revealed he will probably buy the "car of his dreams" without saying any further detail on what vehicle or brand it might be. He also said he's going to look into buying a lakeside cottage in Quebec.

He also happily promised his wife that he will take her to another Roch Voisine show.

some people risk good money

always in these games you should make a good bankroll management to avoid bankruptcy, these games give a lot of variance that is why you have to be very responsible to play, always bet the minimum and go climbing when you have enough bankroll.

we always adapt during the game in case things go well and if something better is won, it's nice. I didn't dream of big prizes until i was younger, but for several years i prefer to win, and not have losses.

This couple must have had the best day of their lives, they have won more than 3 million dollars in this slot game, their perseverance and love for these games have made the destiny to give a joy to these people.

I do not know exactly how this happened , I mean they play normal poker at these games and they just put aside 5 dollars per hand aside for the jackpot ?? Is this obligatory or you bet aside only if you want to claim sth from the jackpot ?? They pay only the royal flush or also other hands sth (less money but sth ) ?? If it's only the jackpot , then it doesn't worth the money if you are a player with small bankroll . But if you have bigger Bankroll , you can play anything you like but ofcourse

Extra money for jackpot and only for royal flush! Thats why jackpot is so big!

I tax in Canada
 CALICUL11/02/2023 05:53:25 GMT
each person bets as he can or plays what he wants, it is not obligatory for anyone to participate in higher stakes for huge jackpots. We only have to adapt to what we want.

such a win is every player's dream.. you have to be very lucky because such an amount can change a person's life completely, as long as someone doesn't lose it later and spend or invest this money well... nothing else left for me but to congratulate the person, who won and dream that something similar will happen to me someday Blink
 CALICUL11/02/2023 11:41:59 GMT
need a lot of luck, of course Smile
 geseco1213/02/2023 20:45:28 GMT
This couple will never forget that day where they won more than 3 million dollars with just a few hands played in this casino, a crazy prize they won, the happiness can be seen in their eyes...
 dule-vu13/02/2023 20:45:39 GMT
Yes, they will never!
 geseco1215/02/2023 23:52:35 GMT
sometimes when luck is on your side no matter how old you are you will always benefit, this couple for sure have many years playing these games and finally they got a very big prize for them, the happiness can be seen in their face.

That's right my friend, sometimes this happens at the moment we least imagine, I hope we can enjoy a moment like this at some stage of our life, it would be very satisfying to have this happen.
 CALICUL17/02/2023 00:44:28 GMT
I like it when everything is correct and the players have a guarantee that the prizes are in order. Many places have this credibility, but not all. Those who could gain credibility do not want changes and because of this people do not play more, otherwise we would have seen prizes much more often
 geseco1218/02/2023 02:56:24 GMT
I hope this can change in the not too distant future, I have heard many people say that this is not transparent, that many things are hidden regarding the winners of millions of dollars in these games, I don't know what to say, I would like this to be very clear.
 CALICUL18/02/2023 03:07:22 GMT
there are other winners who go home with millions and some are brave and take photos for the players, to see. Unfortunately, not everyone does this for other reasons, because they will not have peace... if they expose themselves.
 geseco1220/02/2023 03:50:40 GMT
There are always advantages and disadvantages to this, sometimes it can be that taking a picture or giving a lot of information about the opponent can be very dangerous for that player, in these cases it should always be kept very private.
 dule-vu20/02/2023 06:05:19 GMT
This is live casino game and everybody already saw him!
 geseco1221/02/2023 05:03:56 GMT
I still don't know how I would react if I won a big prize like this in the casino games, it is an indescribable joy, unique in our lives, but for that to be achieved we have to try at least.
 dule-vu21/02/2023 06:15:45 GMT
you when you stick to some thread, you dont let them till they close it, same as for xmas calendar or bitstars threads or football world cup! yeah, its great win,every man on earth would be happy to get amount like this and nobody know how we would react in that moment, especially on live table like this couple!
 geseco1223/02/2023 18:02:33 GMT
I think the truth is, as long as I feel like commenting on the news of these threads I will do it, I have no problem, I always get excited when I see news like this, who is not going to be excited about this, for sure everyone.
 CALICUL23/02/2023 18:05:26 GMT
it's nice to go to the casino and win important sums, but unfortunately few have this luck. Online, i don't know what the biggest gain is, but i hope to see similar news in the future.
