Christmas came early for a poker player in New Jersey. A woman from Monmouth County won the progressive jackpot at a poker table at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City. Thus, she won $1.7 million from her $5 bet.

Officials at the Caesars Entertainment-run casino said the woman was a longtime client. Also, online casino software developers learned the touching story of the woman who tipped her dealers $77,000 for the holidays.

The dealers’ part of the prize pool was five figures, or 4.6% of the pot, which is not a bad holiday bonus. Meanwhile, the winner has earned 33,629,060 percent on her $5 bet, giving her plenty of spending money for Christmas presents.

Benjamin Flanagan, from West Virginia, won $1.2 million from the bad beat prize in the poker table at Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh in August after losing a hand in which he held quad aces. However, his opponent had a royal flush. The bad beat jackpot was reportedly the greatest in live poker history in the United States.

According to gambling industry news reports, the Playground Poker Club in Canada set a new record in June when a player who lost with quad tens won over $845,000 from a $2.2 million prize.

In January, GGPoker handed up $366,159 to Ibai Delgado, who had won the largest Omaha Bad Beat Jackpot in the site’s history, totaling $593,177.
