Last Wednesday, another mystery player won $401K while playing the same game, video poker, at Caesars Palace. And at the Flamingo Las Vegas last Thursday, Camille Romeo of Edinburg, Pa., won $406,555. She was playing Ultimate Texas Hold’em and her winning hand was a royal flush in clubs.

Romeo was playing for three hours before winning the jackpot. Last week’s jackpot marked the third time she had played the game. She plans on using some of the money to pay off the mortgage on her house. The balance will be saved for the future.

She was visiting Las Vegas for a few days with her sister and said she believes her family brought her good luck.

Sandoval had been playing for an hour before hitting the jackpot and says he’ll use the money to help pay for a new house.
