Hit a Big Hand and claim your share of the Jackpot
Yet another feature that shakes up poker to improve the game. Make one of the top three hands and win your share of the Big Hand Jackpot.
What is the Big Hand Jackpot?
It’s simple – hit Four of a Kind, a Straight Flush or a Royal Flush in any Hold’em or Omaha cash game and you’ll instantly receive your share of the Big Hand Jackpot for your troubles.
You don’t even have to win the hand to hit the Big Hand Jackpot and get paid – once you’ve met the requirements, you can fold and win the jackpot! For players who aren’t gunning for a Big Hand, there’s lots of action to look forward to. As high-end draws will rise in potential value, Hold’em and Omaha cash games are going to become more exciting than ever before as players reach for the extra loot.
The amount you’re paid relates the difficulty of obtaining the Big Hand that you hit. The Big Hand Jackpot payout differs based on the stakes from which the jackpot hit occurs –the higher the stakes, the bigger the jackpot total that you claim. For example, making a valid Straight Flush at $5/$10 Hold’em tables will yield abigger jackpot payout than the equivalent Straight Flush at $0.05/$0.10.
Four of a Kind
How does the Big Hand Jackpot work?
Hit the Big Hand Jackpot by making one of the top three ranked hands while meeting the following conditions:
When you make your Big Hand, the amount you have committed to the pot must be equal to or greater than 15 big blinds.
Your current best 5 cards to make the Big Hand must include both of your hole cards (Hold’em).
If both players agree to run the hand more than once, you can win the Big Hand or Flush jackpot on only the first run. You cannot win it on the second or third running.
You must be holding a pocket pair in order to qualify for a Four of a Kind Jackpot win (both Hold’em hold cards and the two Omaha hole cards that make up your eligible 5 card hand).
Big Hand Jackpot Fund
All Hold’em and Omaha cash games share the same jackpot fund for all hits and payouts. The Big Hand Jackpot is funded via cash games. Player’s profits exceeding the amount of 30 big blinds will be allocated to the Jackpot, capped at 1 big blind maximum, allowing the jackpot to grow and grow no matter how often it is hit.
