As a top provider of solutions for Live Casino gaming, Evolution Gaming has just announced plans to launch an addition to their Casino Hold’em game in the near term. Evolution has plans to create the largest online Progressive Jackpot for live casino gaming in the world with the introduction of the Jumbo 7 Jackpot.
The new Jumbo 7 Jackpot version of Casino Hold’em will provide players with an additional level of game play. Evolution plans on seeding the initial jackpot with EUR 1 million which gives players quite the advantage once the game goes live.
Evolution’s Chief Product Officer, Todd Haushalter, commented on the €1 million contribution by stating that the addition of the big cash jackpot is a way for the company to stay thank you to the operators as well as players of their games. Haushalter pointed out that with the volume of players seen on the Casino Hold’em game, the inclusion of the major jackpot could see the game grow larger than all the online progressive slot games of Evolution combined.
The CPO stated that the jackpot could actually grow to more than €30 million which would put the game in contention to be the largest jackpot in the history of slots or table games. With that sort of money, it makes playing the game a lot more fun.
The Casino Hold’em game and UI have integrated Jumbo 7 Jackpot and will provide the extra winnings based on a side bet. Players who place the side bet will be able to qualify for the win even if they fold their hand or lose to the dealer during the main game. As every game is played, the jackpot grows bigger as a percentage of each side bet is placed within the jackpot.
The top jackpot prize can be won with a 7 Card Straight Flush with the full amount of the prize money awarded to the lucky player. The next level of prizes provides cash as well as lower fixed payouts that will be awarded based on particular hands starting with a straight to a 6 card straight flush.
For this table, the Casino Hold’em Jumbo 7 Jackpot is offered via an optional program. Licensees of Evolution who have signed up for the program will be able to have the optional progressive jackpot side bet enabled for their members.
