Glasgow Poker Player Scoops £53,000 Jackpot at Grosvenor Casino Riverboat

A lucky Grosvenor Casino customer managed to win a jackpot of £53,000 by placing a £1. The punter walked away with the large money prize after hitting the jackpot with a £1 at Glasgow’s Grosvenor Casino Riverboat.

The customer won a total amount of £53,000.97 from his Poker Stud side bet. The jackpot winning is hit less than a month after the same side bet of £1 brought a £18,000 prize to another customer.

The latest winning at the Grosvenor Casino Riverboat in Glasgow was commented by the general manager of the venue, John Zokas, shared that the entire team of the casino was very happy for the fact there was another jackpot winner with the casinos’ new Grosvenor Three Card Poker Stud progressive side bet in such a short period of time.

New Progressive Side Bet Brings Massive Jackpot Prizes

Mr. Zokas, who took over the position of general manager of the Riverboat casino only recently, said that it was a great thing that customers enjoyed the gaming area of the casino and found its offerings attractive, as this also boosted the popularity of the casino. Located at the very heart of the city, the Grosvenor Casino Riverboat is considered the premier riverside casino venue in Glasgow. The casino currently offers a variety of games, including blackjack, roulette, three-card poker, as well as Texas Hold’em cash game tables. Electronic roulette and slot games are also available for the venue’s customers.

The Grosvenor Three Card Poker Stud progressive side bet costs £1 per bet and provides punters with a chance to win either one of the two progressive jackpots available. Currently, there is a Minor and a Major jackpot available. The Major jackpot is estimated to the massive sum of £136,000. It has still not been won and awaits the lucky one who could take it down for a bet of £1 only.

The progressive jackpot is a jackpot that increases each time the game is played but the punter does not manage to win the jackpot. When the jackpot is finally won, the jackpot or the next play is reset to a certain value and starts increasing under the same rule again. Such progressive jackpots are most commonly offered at video poker machines and slot machines.

Grosvenor Casino Riverboat in Glasgow is owned and operated by Grosvenor Casinos, which has been one of the most iconic brands of land-based casino venues across the UK. As mentioned above, about a month ago, the management of the casino was taken by John Zokas. Mr. Zokas started his career in the gambling sector in his early twenties. About 17 years ago, he started working as a trainee dealer at the Grosvenor Casino Riverboat, until recently, when he was appointed as the casino’s general manager.
