Two Lucrative Wins Only a Few Hours Apart at Olympic Casino Last Night
Posted on 23.11.2005Last night two major wins were sealed at Olympic Casino only a few hours apart. Both wins – one in the amount of 400,000 kroons (the equivalent of €25,500) and another in the amount of 258,745 (€16,500) – were won in poker games and went to Estonian men in their thirties.
The succession of wins was initiated at 7 p.m. by Egon from Tallinn who increased his wealth by 400,000 kroons gambling on a slot machine in Olympic City Casino on Pärnu road. The winning combination was a royal flush in Draw Poker on the Game Maker poker machine.
Only four hours later, three minutes before midnight, another lucrative win was awarded at the Reval Park Hotel&Casinos, the most exclusive casino of Olympic Casino. The 258,745-kroon win went to Aivo, a man in his thirties who was playing poker at a poker table. He had placed a 300-kroon bet, and the quarter-of-a-million win came from a bonus bet made on the jackpot connecting all the tables of oasis poker.
The jackpot of oasis poker has increased to a little over one million kroons. To win this jackpot, it is necessary to place an extra 50-kroon bonus bet in addition to the regular bet, and then be dealt a royal flush. Straight flush may bring home 20% of the poker jackpot, and this is what happened last night.
