LAS VEGAS – Following a successful trial that linked Pai Gow progressive jackpots at gaming tables at Sunset Station and Red Rock Resort, the progressive expanded February 1 to include all 10 Station Casinos and Fiesta properties including Aliante Station, Boulder Station, Fiesta Henderson, Fiesta Rancho, Green Valley Ranch resort, Palace Station, Red Rock Resort, Santa Fe Station, Sunset Station and Texas Station. The additional properties give Station Casinos the largest multi-property linked Pai Gow progressive in Southern Nevada, which results in higher jackpots.
The expansion of the program means jackpots will start higher, grow faster and players will hit more often with more than 30 tables that are linked company-wide. The beginning jackpot after all properties connected was more than $200,000. Less than seven hours after the progressive was linked to Palace Station, which is coincidentally the final property to be connected, a Virginia man hit that progressive jackpot with a 7-card straight-flush that included a joker. With any regular bet, players become eligible for the progressive with a side bet of only $1. The progressive is won with a seven card straight-flush with or without a joker. The jackpot is once again over $200,000 as of the release date.
Players at Station Casinos can also win 10% of the progressive jackpot with a winning hand of five aces. The initial linked Pai Gow progressive involving Sunset Station and Red Rock Resort was a pilot performed in partnership with ShuffleMaster that began in October. As a result of the program’s success and popularity, Station Casinos expanded it to 10 properties allowing the opportunity for greater jackpots at more locations throughout the Valley.
