Jennifer Tilly, who’s best known for her role in Bride of Chucky (1998) and voice work in Family Guy, hit a large video poker jackpot this week.

The 59-year-old actress was playing a multi-hand video poker machine for $100 per hand.

And while this is definitely a lot to wager, it paid off when she hit a jackpot worth $16,025.

She tweeted a screenshot about the win, which shows that she landed two club royal flushes in the same turn.

Tilly is a regular on televised poker shows, so it’s unlikely that she follows through on her idea about quitting poker. But you can be sure that she’ll be playing more video poker in the future.

Besides being on poker TV shows, Tilly is also a skilled tournament player. She’s won almost $1 million in a poker career that dates back to 2005. This is the same year when she captured the 2005 WSOP $1k Ladies Hold’em event and $158,335.

Tilly doesn’t play poker tournaments as frequently these days. Instead, she mainly focuses on cash games and her acting career. Regarding the latter, her acting career has spanned from 1983 until now.

She’s spent 18 years voicing Bonnie Swanson on Family Guy. She continues to land both TV and movie roles, with her most-recent credits including I’ll Be Next Door for Christmas (2018), Walk to Vegas (2017), and Renaissance Girl (2017).

Given everything that she has going on in the acting world, Tilly continues to be a Hollywood success. And it appears that she’s got a talent for playing video poker and Texas hold’em too.
