Evolution launches Largest Live Casino Progressive Jackpot

Just when we thought there was no way to make the digital gambling world any more interesting, Evolution Gaming found a way. The award-winning live dealer creator has launched the Jumbo 7 Jackpot on its Live Casino Holdem tables. It is by far the largest live casino progressive jackpot to date.

Live Casino Progressive Jumbo 7 Jackpot

The Casino Holdem Jumbo 7 Jackpot was launched earlier this week with a massive €1,000,000 jackpot seed, supplied entirely by Evolution. It’s already a huge hit among players, especially those who appreciate the largest progressive jackpots online.

The Jumbo 7 Jackpot is sure to grow far beyond its Million Euro seed before it strikes. Every side bet wager placed on these special live casino progressive tables will see a small percentage go into the jackpot—hence the ‘progressive‘ nature of the side bet. Plus, the odds of hitting that jackpot are… well, let’s just say they’re pretty long odds.

To win the progressive, a player will need to be dealt a 7-Card Straight Flush. That’s right, a standard 5-card straight flush won’t do the trick. A player will have to combine their two hole cards, with all five community cards, in order to release the big €1M+.

There are only 32 card combinations, out of a possible 133,784,560 combinations, that will produce the Jumbo 7. Therefore the actual odds of being dealt such a perfect hand are 0.00000024%, or 1 in 4,166,666.67 hands.

It may seem like a long shot, but the fact is, someone is going to win it. And when that happens, it will reseed at another €1 million before it’s won again, and again, and again…

In the meantime, there are other nice payouts that can be won, aside from the live casino progressive Jumbo 7 Jackpot. See the following pay table for all pays on the Live Casino Holdem Jumbo side bet.

6-Card Straight Flush €5,000
5-Card Straight Flush €250

Full House €5
Flush €4
Straight €2
Other €0 (Lose)


Note that the live casino progressive jackpot will pay out regardless of whether a player folds their hand, or is beaten by the dealer.

Evolution Celebrates Live Casino Progressive

The company’s Chief Product Officer, Todd Haushalter, commented enthusiastically on the recent launch of the online realm’s largest live casino progressive jackpot. He was particularly proud of Evolution’s exorbitant seed contribution to kick off the new jackpot game.

By Evolution contributing the whole €1,000,000 to start the Jackpot, it is our way of saying ‘thank you’ to operators and players,” he said.

With the player volumes we see on Casino Hold’em this could potentially grow to be bigger than all of the online progressive slots combined. That means it could grow to in excess of €30 million, which will put it in contention to be the biggest jackpot in the history of table games or slots,” said Haushalter.

That sort of money makes playing the game a lot more fun, and that is our mission with this Jackpot version of Casino Hold’em.”

Due to the immensely lucrative nature of this game—both for players and the casinos that host them—Evolution is supplying the new live casino holdem games to exclusively to operators who sign up for the special licence. Other Evolution-powered online casinos will only provide the original live casino holdem game, without the Jumbo 7 Jackpot.

At present, only LeoVegas and UniBet offer the live casino progressive jackpot.
