The jackpot has been increasing in value each day and one lucky winner who hits a royal flush on a progressive game at any of the three resorts will take home the jackpot.

Launched in December 2016, the multi-link progressive has been hit 12 times since inception, the last time on Aug. 5, 2019, for $187,000.

The jackpot is usually hit three or four times a year.

For a chance to win, guests will need to play an eligible table game, which includes Four Card Poker, Let It Ride, Three Card Poker, Ultimate Texas Hold’em, Mississippi Stud Poker and Texas Hold’em Poker.

To be eligible you must make the additional $5 progressive wager at the beginning of the hand.
