Jonathan B. Collects $119,348 From Bovada Casino’s Caribbean Hold’Em
A progressive jackpot strikes again! This time it was at Bovada Casino, where a Texas player landed the top hand playing Caribbean Hold’Em over the weekend. A grand total of $119,348 was collected from the poker-inspired table game.
After putting $25 on the Ante, Jonathan B. was dealt Ad10D. He liked his odds and subsequently raised $50. What happened next is the stuff dreams are made of. The flop came in with KdJdQd, giving Jonathan a Royal flush. There were still two more cards to be dealt, but it didn’t even matter. The dealer qualified, but couldn’t compete with Jonathan’s hand, so a 100-1 payout was sent Jonathan’s way.
A 100-1 payout on $75 is $7,500, but Jonathan collected far more than that thanks to a side bet. Before the start of the round, Jonathan placed $1 on the Progressive Jackpot bet, which pays players for landing a flush and up. Jonathan’s Royal flush got him the whole pot – a whopping $111,848. Now that’s how you play Caribbean Hold’Em.
