188 GamingEvidence supported Gaming Commission’s conclusion that signage on progressive video poker machine was ambiguous, thus entitling casino patron to primary progressive jackpot for descending sequential royal heart flush, even though machine’s signage listed royal flush in ascending order; there was evidence that a sequential royal flush could be ascending or descending, and machine’s signage could be interpreted as merely setting forth an example of a sequential royal flush.
