Do you remember the first time you entered a live poker room to find the big overhead screen flashing the current size of the jackpot? First timers may get excited and think today might be their big payday. Jackpots brew excitement and make for good conversations. They have a profound effect on drawing in new players, and when one hits, oh boy it's time to fasten your seat belts. That's precisely what happened when the biggest poker bad beat jackpot in U.S. history hit at the Motor City Casino for $1,068,590.80 back on January 16. It’s something all players dream about.
That being said, jackpots are on the back of our minds, and we never think that we will be the lucky winner because the requirements are often too demanding. GGNetwork is about to change all that as we will soon introduce a new variation of the jackpot that will thrill players. On June 25, we will launch our new Flush Jackpot, and as the name suggests, your players will be able to hit the jackpot by making an Ace-High Flush, Straight Flush, or Royal Flush in Hold'em cash games. The jackpot payouts will also be exponentially bigger according to the difficulty of the flush hand the player hits.
(Important Note: This will only apply to Hold’em cash games and not to be confused with the All-In or Fold Jackpot. It will not apply to Omaha cash games and Featured Tables.)
Additionally, the most appealing point about the new Flush Jackpot is that players will not have to worry about folding to bigger hands to give up the chance of forgoing jackpots. That's right. The Flush Jackpot does not require players to win their hands. As long as you have already met the jackpot requirements, you can still fold to minimize your cash game losses while winning the jackpot at the same time; this creates ease of mind to fold when you know you are beat. Also, this further incentivize players to play more flush draws for a shot at jackpot glory. It’s time to bring out the confetti and pop the champagne bottles!
