The online player community marveled this week at a new development in the long-running saga of the Jackpot Poker progressive jackpot at Casino Club.com.
our readers may recall that the casino has been embroiled since 2008 in a dispute with a player over a Euro 167 500 jackpot.
The issue has resulted in accusations against the player and the involvement of the Malta regulator, along with the controversial use of a clause in Malta law that gambling debts are unenforceable.
Adding heat to the debate has been a questionable decision by the casino to hold on to the disputed jackpot – which players fund from each wager – long after the case had been finalised.
Last week Casino Club, under some pressure on the forums, agreed to replace the jackpot, and was good for its word, re-fuelling the Jackpot Poker game on October 1st.
Almost immediately, the jackpot was hit again, according to a report on the casino website over the weekend which reads:
“Jackpot Poker just got even better. From the 1st of October the sensational amount of Euro 200,000 has been added to the jackpot of the popular Video Poker game.
“Gavin already hit the jackpot of more than Euro 235,000 in Jackpot Poker.”
The announcement goes on to detail special promotional offers on the game, noting that the
withdrawal requirement for the bonus offer is 30 times, bonus plus deposit.
The jackpot has been reset to Euro 25,875.29 at Euro 25 per hand.
