Pai gow jackpots top $1 million through April at Station Casinos

Progressive pai gow poker is paying off at locals casinos across Las Vegas.

Station Casinos said its progressive jackpot winnings surpassed $1 million for the year through April, three months after linking games at 10 of its properties. Top winners included a $216,000 jackpot on Jan. 31 and $213,500 on Feb. 16.

Players become eligible for the progressive when they place a $1 side bet with a standard wager. Seven-card straight flushes, with or without a joker, pull in the big jackpot. A hand of five aces takes 10 percent of the progressive pot.

Players at two Cannery casinos won a combined $316,000 in the first month of its non-commissioned progressive games.

Pai gow is similar to a Chinese domino game of the same name. It uses a 53-card deck with a joker. Players compete one-on-one with the dealer.
