Evolution Gaming Adds Jumbo 7 Progressive Jackpot to Casino Hold’em
Evolution Gaming, the world’s leading Live Casino supplier, has once again made history with the release of the industry’s biggest online Live Casino Progressive Jackpot. They call it the Jumbo 7 Jackpot and it will be available on their Casino Hold’em game very soon.
Having added a progressive jackpot to their Live Caribbean Poker earlier in February, the company and its players seem to be pleased with the extra feature and are hungry for more. Following the success, Evolution decided to step it up a notch and fund the new progressive pool with EUR 1 million, to begin with.
Here’s how Todd Haushalter, Chief Product Officer at Evolution, described it: “By Evolution contributing the whole €1,000,000 to start the Jackpot, it is our way of saying ‘thank you’ to operators and players. With the player volumes we see on Casino Hold’em this could potentially grow to be bigger than all of the online progressive slots combined. That means it could grow to in excess of €30 million, which will put it in contention to be the biggest jackpot in the history of table games or slots. That sort of money makes playing the game a lot more fun, and that is our mission with this Jackpot version of Casino Hold’em.”
The brand-new Jumbo 7 Jackpot will be available on their Casino Hold’em game, which is available next to other live poker tables such as Three Card Poker, Caribbean Stud Poker, and Ultimate Texas Hold’em.
To win the jackpot, you simply have to place a side bet. Note that it pays even if you fold or get beaten by the dealer’s hand in the main. There are two prize levels, one of which is the full amount. It can only be won with a 7 Card Straight Flush. The second level of jackpot prizes can be yours for a range of other poker hands, which pays 5,000 for 1.
The progressive Casino Hold’em from Evolution will be available through an optional programme for Evolution licensees. The specific date is unknown, but it’s likely to be within the quarter. Meanwhile, you can familiarise with their other recent innovations like the world’s fastest Speed Roulette, which only takes 25 seconds from spin to spin.
