Hit a flush and claim your share of the Flush Jackpot
Doesn’t it just suck when you make your nut flush, only to get outdrawn later with a paired board? Well, worry no more, because Flush Jackpot is about to change things up. You might still get outdrawn, but you’ll be getting your cut of the Flush Jackpot at the end of the hand.
What’s a Flush Jackpot?
Make a flush in Hold’em cash games and reap the rewards. With the Flush Jackpot, we’re introducing a new type of jackpot that’s more attainable for all players. You don’t even have to win the hand to hit the Flush Jackpot and get paid – once you’ve met the requirements, you can still fold and win the jackpot! For players who aren’t gunning for a flush in a hand, there’s lots of action to look forward to. As flush draws will rise in potential value, Hold’em cash games are going to become more exciting than ever before. The amount you’re paid relates the difficulty of obtaining the flush you hit. There’s three levels of Flush rarity to make:
How does the Flush Jackpot work?
Hit the Flush Jackpot for an instant payout by making one of the three types of jackpot hands (Ace-high Flush, Straight Flush or Royal Flush) while meeting the following conditions:
When you make your Flush Jackpot hand, the amount you have committed to the pot must be equal to or greater than 15 big blinds
Your current best 5 cards must include both of your hole cards
If you have commited less than 15 big blinds to the pot and make an eligible flush hand, you will not hit the jackpot unless you commit additional funds to the pot (to bring you to 15 big blinds or more) and improve your hand further once the big blind requirement is met. When it comes to the Flush Jackpot, the core requirement is the 15 big blinds; a strategy of limping into every pot and hitting your flush prior to betting will not work out!
How much can I win from the Flush Jackpot?
Flush Jackpot payouts differ based on the stake from which the jackpot is hit. All blind levels share the same relative jackpot payout percentage:
Flush Jackpot Fund
All Hold’em cash games share the same jackpot fund for all hits and payouts. The Flush Jackpot is funded via Hold’em cash games. Player’s profits exceeding the amount of 15 big blinds will be allocated to the Flush Jackpot, capped at 1 big blind maximum, allowing the jackpot to grow and grow no matter how often it is hit.
Flush Jackpot Terms & Conditions
Once you fold, your jackpot will not improve with hand progression.
If the amount you have committed to the pot is less than 15 big blinds when you make a flush, you will not qualify for the Flush Jackpot. Your flush must improve on a later street where your pot-committed amount becomes 15 big blinds or more.
Once you’ve qualified for the Flush Jackpot, Run It Three Times will not affect the payout you have already earned.
Making a Flush while playing out Run It Three Times will not qualify for the Flush Jackpot.
Hand improvements that occur during Run It Three Times will not improve your Flush Jackpot payout.
Once you have qualified for the Flush Jackpot, leaving the table or disconnections will not cancel the jackpot payout you have already earned.
