A long-time customer at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City has won a $1,681,458 progressive jackpot at a poker table with only a $5 investment. The lucky winner was identified as a Monmouth County woman and takes the record for the largest jackpot payout on a progressive poker game at a Caesars Entertainment property in Atlantic City.
Long-time Customer Wins $1.7 Million Jackpot
The poker side game is a part of Caesars Entertainment’s multi-linked All-In Progressive Poker Jackpot, a table games side bet offered at Caesars, Tropicana, and Harrah’s Resort in Atlantic City.
Big jackpot wins aren’t uncommon in the casino world but it seems that every time we hear about one there is a new discussion about how much the winner should tip.
She Tipped the Dealer $77,000!
Fortunately for the casino dealers, the woman was in a festive mood and decided to tip a cool $77,000, approximately 4.7% of the huge win.
This is a lot more than the measly $200 a big winner handed over last year after binking a $1.1 million jackpot on the Crazy 4 Poker progressive at Las Vegas’ Golden Nugget in August 2021.
I am an over tipper typically. But you are 100% correct. The idea of the customers paying corporate employees through tipping is ridiculous. They should make a regular salary & if an employee goes above and beyond & deserves a tip then I can do that knowing that is extra for them

A couple of months ago, poker Twitter saw a debate on tipping in poker games and how much is necessary for a professional player.
As you might expect, there is never a general consensus on this topic, even among Americans where the tipping culture is most prevalent.
You lost me at, “If you play poker for a living”… it doesn’t matter if you play for a living or not. Tip reasonably. 1/2 game, a buck. Bigger, a couple bucks. Keep in mind you’re getting a better dealer in bigger games. Tip respectively.
