Progressive Poker-Variant Jackpot At The Venetian And The Palazzo Las Vegas Surpasses $500,000



More than $900,000 in jackpot prizes won since launch in May 2014


The Venetian and The Palazzo recently rolled out a multi-game linked progressive jackpot that as of September 15, 2014, has exceeded $500,000. The three brand games included in the progressive are Caribbean Stud Poker, Ultimate Texas Hold’em, and Three Card Poker, and are found at both The Venetian and The Palazzo.


When playing at any one of these three table games, players can make an optional $5 side bet to be eligible for the progressive payout, of which a portion or all of the jackpot will be paid out when a player receives a straight flush or higher. Any player who is dealt a royal flush will win 100% of the linked progressive jackpot.


“Incorporating this linked progressive jackpot to our poker-variant table games gives players the ability to win a large sum of money while playing their favorite games,” said Sean McCreery, senior vice president of casino operations at The Venetian and The Palazzo. “By linking the games, the jackpot increases faster and gives players the chance to win whether they’re playing at The Venetian or The Palazzo.”


The progressive jackpots are based on a five-card poker hand and the odds of winning the entire progressive jackpot with a Royal Flush are the same across all three games. Progressive amounts continually fluctuate based upon play and jackpot payouts.  The progressive jackpot amount stated above is accurate as of September 15, 2014.
