Leon Tsoukernik, King’s Resort owner might have been dejected after not cashing in the CAPT Seefeld High Roller, but a bit of luck shined on him moments later when he decided to sit and play on a selection of Casino Seefeld’s slot machines.
Of course, the entrepreneur and art collector who hails from Czech is not new to the CAPT, with him having his foremost record live cashback in 2011, having finished as the runner-up in the CAPT Innsbruck Main Event for €33,020 ($47,248).
Nonetheless, that amount is a child’s play compared to him playing €1,000 a spin; he strived to win the machine’s jackpot of €1,372,500 (~$1,530,500)!
In a form of comparison, adding to the list of Tsoukernik’s poker flows of cash, it probably will get the second spot, of course behind his Super High Roller Bowl fourth-place finish for $1,800,000.
Tsoukernik recently made the news headlines after he purchased the Casino Atrium at the Hilton Hotel Prague, the home of the European Poker Tour Prague stop. At this venue in 2016, he won the year’s edition of EPT Prague €50,000 Super High Roller for €741,000; and that amounts happens to be his career’s second-biggest tournament victory.
