LAS VEGAS (AP) — A poker player who left a bag with $300,000 in the back seat of a Las Vegas taxi has given $10,000 to the honest cabbie who returned the money.

Yellow Checker Star Cab Company CEO Bill Shranko said Friday the gambler made good on his promise to reward driver Gerardo Gamboa.

The cab company named Gamboa employee of the year, awarded him another $1,000 and gave him a gift certificate to a Las Vegas steakhouse.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that Gamboa was making a pickup Monday at the Bellagio when a hotel doorman noticed the brown paper bag.

Gamboa found bundles of $100 bills inside.

The driver turned the money in to the cab company, and police linked it to the gambler, who they have not publicly identified.

It is the most comfortable work Ive ever done. Make money working at Home. No gimmicks, no pie in the sky, no bull. Just work for few hours and have more time with friends and family. You can earn up to 500$ a week. It's really user friendly. Official site Buzz95.com

I'm sure the gambler doesn't want to be identified so he doesn't have the IRS looking at him!!!
