Progressive, Multi-Property Pai Gow Begins With $250,000 Jackpot at Cannery Casinos
New Game Also Offers No Commission Variation For Pai Gow Players
Starting this week, Cannery Casino and Eastside Cannery Casino will offer the largest multi-property Progressive Pai Gow jackpot in Las Vegas.
The jackpot starts at $250,000 but since the Progressive is linked between Cannery and Eastside Cannery Casinos, it will increase in value at a much faster rate and offer larger jackpots.
“This makes playing Pai Gow at Cannery Casino Resorts properties more exciting for the player, and much more lucrative,” said Xavier Walsh, Chief Operating Officer. “We know players look for the larger Progressive jackpots and now they will find them at Cannery or Eastside Cannery.”
Additionally, those who play Progressive Pai Gow at Cannery or Eastside Cannery Casino will keep all their winnings. Both properties were among the first in Las Vegas to offer a No Commission Progressive variation of the game.
Most Pai Gow games in Las Vegas charge a 5% commission fee when the player’s hand wins. In 2011, Cannery Casino Resorts (CCR), which owns and operates Cannery and Eastside Cannery Casinos, collaborated with DEQ Systems Corporation (DEQ) to provide this No Commission variation of the game.
In lieu of taking 5% of your winnings, CCR made one simple change to the game. When a dealer receives a Queen high Pai Gow, all player-winning hands are pushed.
For Pai Gow players, these exciting changes mean the Cannery and Eastside Cannery are the only casinos to offer No Commission, multi-property linked Progressive Pai Gow games. This combination makes them a smart bet for players looking to win big money on Progressive Pai Gow.
Cannery Casino is located at 2121 E Craig Road in North Las Vegas. Eastside Cannery Casino is located at 5255 Boulder Highway in Las Vegas.
