Playing the $5 Power Play bonus bet, a pai gow player at Silver Legacy in Reno hit a seven-card straight flush, winning a progressive jackpot of $2,487,454.96.

The winning hand hit just before 11:10 p.m. Friday, according to a Caesars Entertainment spokesperson. The winner, who chose to remain anonymous, had a $200 wager on the hand as well as the bonus. The player also won $15,000 on the Fortune Bonus.
