Last weekend turned out to be a very rewarding day for Peter Ferguson as he hit a jackpot while playing Ultimate Texas Hold’em on the Strip.
Ferguson hit a jackpot of $280,007 after being dealt a diamond royal flush on the popular Ultimate Texas Hold’em game Saturday, according to a company statement released Tuesday.
The win occurred at The Palazzo. It only took a $5 bet and travelling a mere 4,872 miles from Scotland to Las Vegas for Ferguson to hit the jackpot, the statement said.
