Poker Rooms Launch Progressive Mega Beat Jackpot Poker
Win For Losing in Multi-Property Texas Hold’em Progressive
Las Vegas, NV – Poker enthusiasts have the chance to earn $50,000 or more playing Texas Hold’em at any one of six participating Harrah’s properties during the new Mega Beat Jackpot Live Poker promotion. Starting today, poker rooms at Harrah’s Las Vegas, Flamingo Las Vegas, O’Sheas Casino, Bally’s Las Vegas, Paris Las Vegas and Harrah’s Laughlin are introducing the mammoth jackpot promotion that makes designated losing hands a winner.
The new Mega Beat Jackpot starts at $50,000 and increases daily the more the game is played without a winner. The initial qualifying hand to win the Mega Beat Jackpot is when four 10’s or higher is beaten by a higher four-of-a-kind or better. Each week the Mega Beat Jackpot isn’t won, the qualifying hand will drop numerically until the Mega Beat Jackpot is won. Once the jackpot is claimed, the prize will reset at $50,000 and the qualifying hand will return to four 10’s.
“We’re excited to introduce this multi-property promotion to our poker players,” said Mark Kelly, Vice President of Table Games for Harrah’s and Flamingo Las Vegas. “Avid players know the disappointment when a seemingly winning hand is crushed by an even better hand. With the Mega Beat Jackpot, even a losing hand can be a winner and the jackpot has the potential to grow daily.”
To add to the excitement, when a Mega Beat Jackpot is hit, all active players engaged in an eligible Texas Hold’em game at any one of the participating casinos will win a share of the Mega Beat Jackpot. Official rules and regulations about the Mega Beat Jackpot Promotion are available in the poker room of each participating casino.
