A Las Vegas Uber Driver Returns $7K Lost Money To World Series Poker Player
A World Series of Poker player says he hit an â€œemotional jackpotâ€ thanks to an Uber driver who returned his $7,000 ante.
Jacob Brundage of Florida says he lost a tote filled with cash and playingchips June 1.
The 39-year-old realized the bag was in an Uber car that he rode from The Venetian to the Rio.
Brundage failed to reach the driver through the app and enlisted a group of waiting Uber drivers to help.
The driver, who wants to remain anonymous, called Brundage and returned the bag.
Brundage gave him $200 as a reward.
Maui Cheska Orozo, a spokeswoman for San Francisco-based Uber, says this is likely the most expensive item ever left in an Uber car in Las Vegas.
