Kathy Wayda wins $1 Million Jackpot at Caesars Atlantic City
Three card poker games in Atlantic City have become fairly popular over the years due to the huge jackpots being offered. In fact, somebody managed to win a $1 million jackpot at Harrah’s Atlantic City while playing this game. And that feat was duplicated just recently by Kathy Wayda as she hit a $1 million prize at Caesars Atlantic Casino.
Getting into the specifics, Wayda was playing Three Card Poker – 6 Card Bonus. While making the qualifying $20 bets on each hand, she managed to get a Super Diamond Royal Flush, which netted her the $1m windfall. Assuming she’d hit the royal flush in another suit, she would have “only” won $100,000.
After winning the huge prize, Wayda discussed her emotions by saying, “There were three other people sitting down at my table and everybody wanted to see what was going on. When I saw all six cards, I thought, ‘I cannot believe this, this is impossible.’ It was just a great feeling.”
As if this wasn’t incredible enough, the Michigan woman also talked about how somebody before her had won a $1m jackpot one week earlier. Wayda explained this by mentioning, “They had told me that after mine had shown-up, that someone hit a week ago, I could not believe it. I had played Three Card Poker before with the 6 Card Bonus side bet, but I didn’t even know this additional million dollar prize had been implemented until we got to Atlantic City.”
Before winning the $1 million payout, Kathy Wayda had never earned more than $2,000 with a single gambling prize. However, she never stopped playing casino games, which led to her winning a fortune while playing three card poker.
