An NFL rookie found a way to outearn the Pro Bowlers this weekend in Las Vegas.
Running back Ronnie Rivers, a Fresno State product who saw action in eight games with the Los Angeles Rams, won $514,837 on Saturday after hitting a mega jackpot on Three Card Poker at Caesars Palace, according to a Caesars Entertainment spokesperson.
(By the way, each member of the Pro Bowl’s winning NFC roster earned $84,000, while the losing AFC counterparts picked up $42,000 each.)
Rivers, 24, was in town to celebrate his and his mom’s birthday. He said he plans on taking his winnings and buying a house.
Another type of rookie scored Monday at Harrah’s Las Vegas.
Timothy Roesler of Athens, Wisconsin, won $117,000 after hitting a major jackpot on Ultimate Texas Hold’em.
Roesler was playing the game for the first time and landed the win just after one hour.
