From Rags to Riches: Casino Pays Out $1.3 Million on $5 Wager

Share Article

Online casino and gaming giant paid out $1.3 million on a $5 wager. The lucky winner was playing video poker when he won big in the Bodog Casino.

Another Bodog Casino player has landed in the millionaires club after going on an amazing run in the Bodog 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 sizeable $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 Bodog's video poker," says Bodog's Founder Calvin Ayre. "Bodog's casino continuously aims to raise the bar with this type of entertainment and we couldn't be more happy to make some dreams happen while we're at it."

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 - a great betting opportunity that involves no house edge so players have a 50/50 chance of winning each time they double up. The British national took full advantage of this and proceeded to double up successfully 16 times in a row and walk away as Bodog's newest millionaire.

"I'm a gambler. I like to gamble," he said. "I thought about cashing out after breaking $40,000, but decided to continue. Then when I broke one million, I was tempted by the thought of doubling up on over one million dollars, but finally decided against it."

What did the millionaire do after his win? "I went on a long walk and smiled a great deal," he said.
