$82K Jackpot is Claimed by Lucky Bovada Casino Player

It's always great to hear news of a slots player winning one of the progressive jackpots available at an online casino. We've now gone one better, as we've got news of one lucky Ohio player, James S, scooping a massive win while playing one of the table games at Bovada Casino.

James decided to give the Caribbean Stud Poker game a whirl on April 11th this year. It turned out to be a great decision. He decided to wager $4 on the round, but also opted to take on the side bet that gave him a shot at winning the progressive jackpot. This requires an additional $1 over the main bet. We think he must be very glad he wagered that extra dollar, because after doing so he managed to trigger a Royal Flush. Even if you're not fully familiar with poker, we think you'll recognize that is a good hand!

The Royal Flush triggered the entire progressive jackpot to be paid out to him. And since it had been climbing for a while, James won an incredible $82,180. If he'd managed a straight flush, 10% of the total jackpot amount would have been paid. We're guessing he would have been delighted with that, but thankfully it was the Royal Flush that was dealt to him. Now, that's what we call being dealt a great hand! Well done, James!
