First Ever $1,000 Royal Flush Winner

matt w 160wIt has finally happened!  Matt Wolff from Spicer, MN who plays in leagues all of the state of MN, has done it!  Matt scratched off the Royal Flush to qualify for the Golden Ticket National Championship AND WIN $1,000 in cold hard cash!  Every scratch poker card has the chance of winning $1,000 instantly and Matt was lucky enough to get the A-K-Q-J-10 of hearts.  It took all seven attempts as Matt said he was open ended with the K-Q-J-10.  On his last attempt he started scratching and saw a red ace.  He was now down to a 50/50 with the ace of diamonds giving him nothing just missing out and the ace of hearts landing him a thousand bucks.  After continued scratching to reveal the ace of hearts Matt said his hands were shaking and he almost started hyperventilating not believing his luck.  It just goes to prove at any night in the poker league you could be the next $1,000 instant winner!
