The 2022 World Series of Poker (WSOP) live festival has created another millionaire, but this time around, the winner relied on pure luck to take home the highly-coveted seven-figure sum. The lucky player we’re talking about is Pennsylvania local Matthew Glantz.

Glanz was among the 14,112 participants in the ongoing $1,000 buy-in WSOP Bounty which kicked off over the weekend. On Tuesday, July 5, he won the largest mystery cash prize on offer at the event after digging through a chest filled with envelopes.
