Rags-to-Riches Win for UK Poker Player

$5 poker wager wins anonymous man $1,310,720

Tuesday 31st October 2006

A poker player has cemented his spot in the millionaires club after an amazing run in the Casino. The player who hails from Forge Cottage, England, and wishes to remain anonymous, sat down at his computer to play Jacks or Better video poker and before he knew it, his $5 bet won him a whopping $1,310,720.

'For the player who likes a game of skill, a low house edge and the possibility of large wins, there is nothing else that can compare to's video poker,' says's founder Calvin Ayre.

The big winner was playing $1 Jacks or Better and wagering 5 coins, or $5 at a time when an amazing chain of events unfolded. He wagered $5 and got paid $5 for his pair of Queens. From that win, he was then given the option to double up. Since no house edge is involved, players have a 50/50 chance of winning each time they double up. The ballsy Brit proceeded to double up successfully 16 times in a row and walked away a millionaire.

”When I broke one million, I was tempted by the thought of doubling up on over one million dollars,” admitted the winner, “but finally decided against it.'
