Hit the Jackpot for a Royal Sum at Pacific Poker

Share this
It could happen in an instant. You could get a message, fall in love, or change your mind. Your phone could ring, lightning could strike, or you could hit the Royal Flush Jackpot at Pacific Poker and pocket a huge sum of money—$25,000 or more—in an instant. Here’s how.

Simply play the same poker game you know and love, but at one of Pacific Poker’s Royal Flush Jackpot tables. The jackpot tables are listed under the “Jackpots” tab in the lobby and are labeled with the word “Royal” in brackets beside the table name. Each Royal jackpot starts at $25,000 and increases with every raked hand, until someone gets lucky and scoops up the prize!

Once you select a table, you will see the sum of the Royal jackpot and its progression posted above the chat box. At the beginning of each hand, a window will appear and remain for a total of seven seconds notifying you that it’s time to place your jackpot Extra Bet. If you choose to participate in the jackpot, simply click “Place Jackpot Bet.” Or if you want to automatically place an Extra Bet on future hands, click the “Auto Post jackpot Extra Bet” box in the lower left corner of the screen.

At least two players must contribute to the jackpot or the hand will not be eligible. In that case, all contributions from participating players will be returned to their bankrolls. To see which of the players placed jackpot bets, look for a green “JP” icon in the player’s name boxes. Players with a red icon in their name box did not place jackpot bets and are not qualified to win, nor are players who are sitting out.

Jackpot contributions are collected only once during the hand and are added to the jackpot until it’s hit. If you get a Spade Royal Flush, you’ll bank 100% of that jackpot amount. Get any other Royal Flush and you’ll pocket a tidy 10% of the jackpot. The winning hand must include both hole cards and the hand must go to the showdown.

Keep in mind that any hand where you haven’t contributed to the progressive Royal jackpot pool will not be considered eligible, regardless of whether or not the jackpot auto-play box has been selected. This could occur, for example, during the first hand of a session at any Royal jackpot table, the first active hand following a disconnection and the first active hand after sitting out. In the event there are technical difficulties that prevent the game’s completion, the hand will not participate in the jackpot and all contributions will be returned to the players’ bankrolls.

Every time the jackpot is hit, 100% of the jackpot amount is distributed, to the Royal jackpot winner only, as follows: 100% to a Spade Royal Flush and 10% to all other Royal Flushes. Pacific Poker will then replenish the jackpot with another $25,000.

Start playing the Royal Flush Jackpot tables at Pacific Poker now for your chance to pocket $25,000 or more. And don’t worry, if you hit the jackpot but aren’t paying attention, you’ll be notified with a pop-up message—instantly!
