Can't find this anywhere on the web. Found the natural odds, but need to know odds with joker. Would like to get a 1 in so and so million chance formula for the answer. I am a dealer who just dealt this jackpot in fortune pai gow 1 week ago today and would love to be able to add the odds of 1 in so and so million to my story that I will be talking about for the rest of my life. And for all of you players, "Yes, it can happen to you....."

Thank-you. Well I guess I'll just have to say 1 in approx. 3/4 million. It was still a great day that I and my player will never forget. He won just a tad over $300,000 with the progressive and his fortune bet and yes he tipped me very well.....

very nice win and tip. Good publicity for the House also, business might pick up a bit.
Some people need to reimagine their thinking.

A buddy's girlfriend got this one. Unfortunately, they were at a casino without the bonus bet- which they would have played had it been there. Go figure...
Lack of prior planning on your part doesn't constitute an emergency on my part.

I know what you mean, I always feel slightly ripped off if there's not a progressive bonus bet when I play. You never know when it will hit. (Which is what I tell my players.)

Last time, at Gold Coast, one player hit $290,000 and tipped the dealer $200, and every dealer cried. They all remembered him, came from Southern CA.

Yeah, we tend to remember those really good tippers and the really bad ones. We keep our own so those wide swings are especially memorable. A large payout can be a dream come true or a nightmare.
