Lucky player wins $260,682 Pai Gow progressive jackpot at Eastside Cannery

18 April 2012

LAS VEGAS (PRESS RELEASE) -- Wow! That’s one way to describe the $260,682 progressive Pai Gow jackpot won this weekend at the Eastside Cannery Casino & Hotel.

The player, a frequent Eastside Cannery customer, played a seven card straight flush Saturday night, winning the progressive jackpot prize of $260,682.

Last month, the Cannery Casino and Hotel and the Eastside Cannery Casino linked their Pai Gow progressive jackpots, offering the largest progressive jackpot in town at $250,000. The multi-property feature means the jackpot increases in value much faster and will offer larger jackpots in the future. In addition, in 2011, Cannery Casino Resorts, LLC (CCR), which owns and operates the Cannery and Eastside Cannery Casinos, partnered with DEQ Systems Corporation (DEQ) to provide a No Commission variation of the game.

Most Pai Gow games in Las Vegas charge a 5% commission fee on the base wager when a player’s hand wins, but CCR's No Commission version allows players to keep all their winnings and also speeds up the Pai Gow game.

For Pai Gow players, these changes mean the Cannery and Eastside Cannery are the only casinos to offer No Commission, multi-property linked progressive Pai Gow games.
