A Houston, Texas, resident won $35,000 by hitting a Royal Flush on Let It Ride Bonus at the Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino Tuesday.
Greg Voskian walked away with the payout after hitting the highest possible hand on the table game at 4:30 p.m. Oct. 14.
In Let It Ride, players make three equal bets and receive three cards that will be combined with two community cards to create a five-card poker hand. After seeing their first three cards, players may withdraw their first bet or may “Let It Ride.” The dealer then reveals the first community card and players can withdraw their second wager or “Let It Ride.” Once each player has made their second wager decision, the dealer reveals the final community card and pays any winning payouts. The 3 Card Bonus side bet rewards players if their first three cards are a pair or better. This wager is made at the beginning of the game when the standard and Let It Ride Bonus wagers are placed.
In addition to Let It Ride, the Golden Nugget offers other popular table games like Blackjack, Roulette, Craps, Pai Gow Poker, 3 Card Poker and Mini-Baccarat. The property also has a plush 10-table Poker Room, relaxing Keno Lounge and thousands of slot favorites.
