Parking Lot Attendant Becomes Millionaire After Winning Poker Tournament

Luck was on Ryan Riess' side when he won the 2013 World Series of Poker. INSIDE EDITION has his story.

It was an electrifying moment as a young man won the World Series of Poker and a jackpot of $8.4 million!

Twenty-three year old Ryan Riess of East Lansing, Michigan stood in disbelief before a giant pile of money as his friends and family cheered him on. Then, it was party time!

It was a wild celebration in his swanky suite in a Vegas hotel, but unlike the Vegas losers who woke up broke in the movie The Hangover, Riess greeted the next day as a very rich man.

Before his big win, he worked at K-Mart and was a parking lot attendant. Now, with money like that, he can afford to be pampered. He had a butler hand him pretzels, one at a time!

His parents are proud of him. He's just won a fortune. In his own words, "Life is good."
