LAS VEGAS — A Las Vegas tourist became an instant millionaire after winning a jackpot while in town for March Madness.

Kenneth Snoots, a Maryland resident, hit a royal flush while playing Mississippi Stud on Thursday at Bally’s on the Las Vegas Strip.

The jackpot was worth $1,094,138.95, according to a company news release.

Caesars Entertainment said it has introduced more ways for players to cash in on these types of jackpots with linked table games.
