He won the jackpot while playing Crazy 4 Poker at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino on Monday. The 29-year-old played the table game for about an hour before winning a mega progressive jackpot with a royal flush. That game was the first time he had played poker on a casino floor.

Aynsley was visiting Las Vegas on vacation with friends when he decided to stop off at the Caesars Entertainment property. He plans to invest some of the money and share the rest with his family.

Aynsley later revealed that his positive outlook helped him win the jackpot, according to a statement from Caesars Entertainment.

Overcoming Odds

But Aynsley didn’t always have a positive attitude toward life, battling obesity, loneliness, and low self-esteem as a teenager, according to Essentially Sports, a website that covers athletics and athletes. He was frequently bullied in his younger days and even contemplated suicide as a child, the report revealed.

He made it through those years by playing the video game Minecraft. As he grew older, Aynsley discovered the world of physical fitness and body conditioning. The fitness influencer with 1.4 million followers on Instagram now stands 6 feet tall and weighs about 195 pounds.

“God works in mysterious yet beautiful ways,” Aynsley said in an Instagram post after his win.
