Whether it was three or seven cards, two lucky visitors to Las Vegas are thrilled they fell their way this weekend.
A first-time visitor from Utah won nearly $250,000 playing pai gow poker on Friday morning at The Orleans.
The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, had bet $1 when he hit the rare natural seven-card straight flush, winning him a progressive jackpot of more than $223,000 at 1:46 a.m., according to a Boyd Gaming spokesperson.
