It’s an optional extra for Evolution Live Casinos so it may be a while before we see a widespread uptake.
It’s a side bet that costs £1 to play and will payout the jackpot if the player hand is dealt a Royal Flush.
All players playing the progressive jackpot at the time a Royal Flush is hit will receive a share of the published jackpot.
To keep things interesting there are 6 lower value fixed prizes to be won if you hit a hand that is 3 of a Kind or greater in value.
You’ll win the amount displayed below. This is not shared amongst other players.
The prizes in order are:
Evolution Gaming has seeded the first jackpot with €50,000. For every £1 bet a sum will be put aside in a reseed pot, so that when the Progressive Jackpot is won a new pot can be provided.
All bets and payouts are in the local currency you’re playing in.
All progressive prizes are paid out even if the player folds his hand or is beaten by the dealer.
A quick whizz around my favourite casinos has revealed that you can play the Progressive Jackpot at:
If the game is cancelled before five cards were dealt, then the Jackpot bet is refunded to the players.
If the game is cancelled after the dealer has dealt five or more cards, and the player wins on the Jackpot side bet, payment to the player will be reviewed and made after the licensee has confirmed the payout and the player notified via email.
I have tried to be objective and consistent with all my live casino reviews. Hopefully, they will strike a chord with you, but I thought it might be helpful to explain the criteria I use to mark each of the casinos. Hopefully, the categories and explanations make sense.
Playability – What is the overall impression of the casino? Did I have a good time? are the dealers nice and chatty and is everything easy to understand? Does it have a good set of games and is there a comprehensive set of betting options? Are high stakes players taken care of?
Software – What is the software like to use and does it integrate well with the rest of the casino?. Are the images clear and is the video streaming fast? Have they taken more than the default shared tables? Is it available on mobile?
Payment Options – Does the casino have a good variety of payment options? Do they payout quickly and on time?
Security – How good is the reputation of the casino amongst other players? Do they hold a valid gaming license? Are they transparent about the security measures they have in place? Are they regularly audited? Do they publish this information?
Support – Do they have multiple methods for communication with me? Is support available 24×7? Do they have instant chat and are they quick to respond? Are they able to help me immediately? Do they have an online FAQ and self-help library? Are the support people knowledgeable about the product I’m playing?
Bonuses – Do they have bonuses?. How strict are the wagering requirements? Do they offer repeat bonuses?. Do they offer loyalty points and can they be redeemed for cash or playing credits?
After all that, would I play there regularly?
