Couldn’t resist having a crack Evolution Gaming’s new Jumbo 7 Jackpot side bet today, for a couple reasons.
Firstly, it presented an opportunity to rack up some points in Unibet’s €30K live table tourney (the 10K poker portion that is).
Secondly, I couldn’t help but notice the progressive jackpot sitting at a very auspicious value of $888 thousand. Not that I’m superstitious or anything, but having never witnessed a 7 card Straight Flush on a live casino hold’em table I figured I was going to need all the help I could get.
The Jumbo 7 Jackpot side bet
For those unfamiliar, Evolution Gaming’s new Jumbo 7 Jackpot can be won by placing a side bet (of the same name) that has been introduced on their Live Casino Hold’em table…at a handful of casinos only. Presently Unibet and Leo Vegas offer this new jackpot bet on their hold’em table.
If you place the Jumbo 7 Jackpot bet, and make a 7 card Straight Flush combining your pockets and the 5 community cards…then you share the jackpot with any others who placed the bet. It’s a big jackpot and being progressive, will continue to grow over time as player’s bets contribute to it.
I didn’t win it, so it has sailed past $888,088.83.
I did however manage a few flushes.
