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.
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.
The current jackpots stand at (refresh page for latest figure).
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.
Not all Evolutions Casinos have opted for the Progressive Jackpots. Fortunately most of the biggest ones have.
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?
