Evolution’s €391,372.10 Progressive Jackpot

Evolution Gaming has announced that 7 lucky players won a share of the Live Caribbean Stud Poker progressive jackpot of €391,372.10.

That’s a whopping €55, 910.30 a person for the outlay of a €1 bet.

The Progressive Jackpot is paid when a Royal Flush is dealt to the players hand.

It would appear that the players were playing the Live Caribbean Stud Poker progressive jackpot at Mr Green, Unibet and Grosvenor Casinos.

The Progressive Jackpot was first introduced in January 2017 and was seeded with an initial €50,000 euros.

5% of each jackpot bet is then set aside to grow the jackpot which reached €391,372.10 figure in June 2018.

Evolution also has progressive jackpots running on Live Casino Hold’em and Texas Hold’em Bonus Poker. All cost 1 £/€ to play.

How Progressive Jackpots Work

A small percentage of a special or jackpot bet (in Evolution’s case 5% of the bet) is set aside and added to a growing jackpot pool.

There is a separate Jackpot Pool for each of the three games running a progressive Jackpot.

There are several prizes available to players with most being paid directly to each player when they are won.

The Jackpot prize for the most difficult hand, normally a Royal Flush, is different, this is split between all the players playing the Jackpot bet when the hand is dealt.

When the jackpot is won, the prize pool is reset to an initial value, in the case of the Caribbean Stud Poker Jackpot that figure is €50,000.

OF course this Progressive Jackpot falls well short of the largest recorded online jackpot win of €17,879,645.

Where can you play the Progressive Jackpots?

Not all Evolutions Casinos have opted for the Progressive Jackpots. Fortunately most of the biggest ones have.

If your not superstitious then Mr Green, Unibet and Grosvenor Casinos are all good bets.

If you prefer playing somewhere that didn’t have a winning player then Leo Vegas and Codeta are good options.

About Neil’s Casino Comparer Reviews

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 used to mark each of the casinos. Hopefully, the categories and explanations make logical sense.

Playability – What is the overall impression of the casino. Did I have a good time?, are the dealers nice and chatty?, is everything easy to understand?. Does it have a good set of games, is there a comprehensive set of betting options? Are high stakes players taken care of?

Software – What is the software like to use, does it integrate well with the rest of the casino?. Are the images clear and 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 & 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?, 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?
