A new side bet at Three Card Poker tables could pay off up to $1 million, thanks to a bonus jackpot available exclusively at Caesars Entertainment Las Vegas resorts.

The game, Three Card Poker 6 Card Bonus™, was unveiled this summer, and pays players generously if their three cards and the dealer’s three cards combine to make certain five- and six-card hands. Top prize for a six-card Diamond Super Royal is a cool $1 million; players hitting other suited Super Royals rake in $100,000.

Unlike other table-game jackpots, which take time to build and reset to lower amounts once they’ve hit, the top prize in the new Three Card Poker 6 Card Bonus™ pays $1 million all the time without any progressive element. That has Jeff Kowalchuk, Caesars Entertainment’s director of corporate table games, excited about the possibilities for players to strike it rich, and he expects the jackpot to attract more players. In anticipation, Caesars Entertainment has 83 Three Card Poker 6 Card Bonus™ tables across its Vegas properties.

“Giant, life-changing jackpots always have been available on slot machines, but there has never been a table-game jackpot of this magnitude available to customers on an everyday basis,” he says. “Our goal was to create something new.”
