Jumbo 7 is the largest progressive jackpot live dealer game from Evolution Gaming. Evolution Gaming is one of the top Live Casino game providers in New Zealand. With classic table games such as Blackjack, Roulette and Poker under their belts, the firm has announced Jumbo 7 as their newest project for Live Dealer games.
Jumbo 7 Casino Hold ‘Em
The game format for Jumbo 7 will be Casino Hold ‘Em Poker, one of the most popular table games offered by Evolution Gaming. Casino Hold ‘Em, also known as Caribbean Hold ‘Em Poker, is played with seven cards like Omaha Poker. The game is similar to Texas Hold ‘Em, though with some differences, such as side bets.
Jumbo 7 Side Bets
What makes this Live Dealer game different is that NZ players can place side bets. In Casino Hold ‘Em, one of the side bets Kiwis can place is the AA+ bet. The bet pays out based on the poker value of the winning hand in the last round. In the game, side bets will pay out based only on the winner’s pair of cards and the five community cards.
Jumbo 7 Winning Hand
For Jumbo 7 players, a 7 Card Straight Flush is the winning hand to receive the full jackpot. A percentage of each side bet is added to the jackpot, so playing it safe will reward poker fans. However, the progressive game is an optional program, so some online casino operators may choose not to offer the game at first.
Jumbo 7 Jackpot
The new Live Dealer online poker game will start with a EUR1 million jackpot (NZ$1.5 million), according to Evolution’s Chief of Products, Todd Haushalter. According to Haushalter, the jackpot is a ‘thank you’ to operators and players. He went on to say that the jackpot may grow up to EUR30 million due to the popularity of the game.
