Based on the ‘Let it Ride’ progressive casino game that has proved hugely popular in land based casinos across the United States, Progressive Poker Ride is one of the few non-slot based games that offers players a chance at a progressive jackpot.
The game is based on Microgaming’s popular Poker Pursuit game, with a few modifications to make it playable as a table game and also to generate a progressive jackpot win.
Microgaming have also copied the way in which players are rewarded with a Royal Flush triggering the big progressive win, while a straight flush sees the player pocket 10% of the jackpot, the same as players can win in land based casinos.
To play the player simply decides how much they wish to bet on a hand from their chip stack (from 0.50 to 100) and they must also decide if they want to be eligible for the progressive jackpot by paying 1 credit if they wish to opt in.
When the bet is made, three cards are dealt face up, with a further two cards face down. The player then uses the five cards as they are revealed to make the best possible poker hand.
If you manage to get a pair or 10s or better in your hand then you win and the amount you win is determined by the odds for the hand you have. A pair of 10s or better pays out at even money, two pairs at 2-1, three of a kind at 3-1, a straight at 5-1 and so on, up to a Royal Flush at 1000/1.
However, if you have opted in to the Progressive Jackpot bet at the start of the hand, then you can win an extra 50 credits for a flush, 100 credits for a full house, 500 credits for four of a kind, 10% of the progressive jackpot for a straight flush and the entire progressive jackpot for a royal flush.
The action is fast and furious and Progressive Poker Ride offers a great way to compete for top in game prizes as well as a fantastic progressive jackpot.
