Jennifer Tilly Wins Video Poker Jackpot

Jennifer Tilly has had a very long poker career that includes a WSOP gold bracelet and plenty of appearances on televised poker shows.

But she recently hit a video poker jackpot worth $16,025 and began pondering a switch to machine-based games.

Here’s a look at her tweet on the matter:

I can assume that Tilly isn’t serious about quitting poker just because she won a $16k video poker jackpot. After all, she is worth $25 million¬†and makes the bulk of her money through acting. Nevertheless, this is definitely a nice win.

As you can see from the screenshot, she was betting $100 per hand at the time of the win. So there’s a good chance that she had to spend lots of money to make money in this case.

Huck Seed is the Ultimate Poker-to-Video Poker Champ

No poker player has had more success on the video poker machines than Huck Seed. The 1996 WSOP champion once won a progressive jackpot worth $670,665.

He was playing a progressive machine at the Aria in Las Vegas when he won. This was no random-luck occurrence either because Seed studied strategy, then chose the right game based on the progressive jackpot size.

The only catch is that Seed had to bet $500 per hand with the hope that he’d win and earn positive ROI. Lucky for him, this is exactly what happened.
