A punter from Western Australia has proved this weekend that the house isn't always the winner as he walked out of Crown Casino Perth in the wee hours of Sunday $2.9 million richer.
To have the chance to win big, punters need to place a progressive jackpot wager during any poker game.
The jackpot prize is won when a player manages to bring up a Royal Flush - the best possible hand in a standard poker game, with a total of five cards (10, jack, queen, king, and ace) all having the same suit.
The massive win came at around 3 a.m. last Sunday, June 4, in the $15 Progressive Poker jackpot at Crown Casino located in Perth, Australia.
The unnamed lucky player went home with $2,936,311 in winnings.
