King's Resort Owner Leon Tsoukernik Scoops $1.5m Slots Jackpot
King's Resort owner Leon Tsoukernik might not have cashed in the CAPT Seefeld High Roller, but lady luck was shining on him shortly afterwards when he sat down to play on one of Casino Seefeld's selection of slot machines.
The Czech entrepreneur and art collector is no stranger to the CAPT, with his first-ever record live cash coming back in 2011 when he finished runner-up in the CAPT Innsbruck Main Event for €33,020 ($47,248).
However, that amount is a drop in the ocean, as with Tsoukernik playing €1,000 a spin, he managed to win the machine's jackpot of €1,372,500 (~$1,530,500)!
To put that into perspective, if it was added to Tsoukernik's list of poker cashes, it would be good enough for second overall, behind his fourth-place finish in the 2017 Super High Roller Bowl for $1,800,000.
Tsoukernik was recently in the news after purchasing the Casino Atrium at the Hilton Hotel Prague, home to the European Poker Tour Prague stop. This was the venue where he won the 2016 EPT Prague €50,000 Super High Roller for €741,000, an amount which still stands as the second-biggest tournament victory of his career.
