Rivers Schenectady pays out nearly $500K jackpot

30 October 2017

(PRESS RELEASE) -- One lucky guest became nearly a half-million dollars richer in an instant at the Three Card Poker table at Rivers Casino & Resort Schenectady this weekend.

The player, who wishes to remain anonymous, won $497,152 on a single hand on Saturday night after hitting the table's progressive jackpot. He drew a 10, king and ace of spades, which combined with the queen and jack of spades in the dealer's bonus hand to make a royal flush. It was the largest jackpot paid since Rivers Casino opened in February.

Four other players at the table bet the progressive and all received a $5,000 "envy" payout.

"Having many ways to play means many ways to win, and at Rivers Casino, we love a winner," said Rivers Casino & Resort Schenectady General Manager Mary Cheeks. "We have paid out nearly $20 million in jackpots alone since opening, and we look forward to celebrating even more winners."

A jackpot is a win of $1,200 or more.

Rivers Casino & Resort Schenectady features the only live table gaming in the Capital Region, with 67 tables of gaming action.
