Rampart Casino last week christened another Progressive Pai Gow Poker Jackpot winner. On Tuesday, California resident Dennis Perkins was dealt a seven-card straight flush and won $92,204 as a primary progressive prize plus $5,000 on the fortune bonus for a total payout of $97,204.

Since Rampart Casino added the progressive feature to Pai Gow Poker a little over a year ago it has given away a total of $740,652. Currently, Rampart Casino’s primary Progressive Pai Gow Poker Jackpot is still over $40,000.

Progressive Pai Gow Poker allows players to make a small progressive wager in addition to their standard Pai Gow Poker bet to be eligible to win a progressive jackpot in addition to their odds payouts. The top hand in the game, a seven-card straight flush, pays 8,000 to 1 and 100% of the jackpot.
