A New Jersey plumber and HVAC contractor hit a $1.3 million jackpot last weekend at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City.
“James,” who asked that his last name not be used, hit the Royal Flush Mega Jackpot on Ultimate Texas Hold ’em with a $5 progressive bet, the casino announced on Tuesday.
“It is surreal to have hit a $1.3 million jackpot, especially because playing cards is a little different than laying pipe,” the instant millionaire said after his big win Sunday night.
James said he plans to take put some money away for his kids and take his wife on a deserved vacation.
In addition to the $1.3 million prize, a Mays Landing resident on Monday won $90,000 playing Blazing 7s on Monday. The winnings this week also extend to a $168,657 Dollar Storm and $80,000 Double Gold slot machine jackpot, both of which were hit Sunday, according to the casino.
