No one is usually a fan of long lines. But it happened to work in favor of actor James Woods on Wednesday.

The “Casino” actor was playing a Five Hand video poker machine at Bally’s when he was dealt a royal flush and won $12,000, according to the actor’s verified Twitter account.

Woods said the line was too long to sign up for a World Series of Poker event, so he decided to relax for a bit.

In addition to “Casino,” Woods has been featured in “Against All Odds,” “Diggstown” and “Family Guy” among his 143 acting credits as listed on IMDb.com.
