Maui Progressive Poker Jackpot Sit and Go
One of the similarities shared by the dozens of poker rooms on iPoker network are the new and exciting poker promotions, including the Maui Jackpot Sit & Go offered to players, which is worth just $5 + $1 with $5 from each player’s buy-in goes to the prize pool. The $1 that goes toward rake may seem a bit excessive, but this is to compensate for the progressive jackpot.
In addition to the regular tournament winnings, players who participate in this promotion compete for a massive guaranteed $15,000 jackpot, but for each week that goes by without the jackpot being collected, an additional $3,500 goes towards the prize pool, making for a very attractive prize pool. It’s not at all uncommon for the jackpot to get up to as much as $50,000 when a player hasn’t hit the jackpot in months.
In order to be eligible for the jackpot, you will certainly need a bit of luck on your side. If you can manage to win five 10-player SNGs in a row then the jackpot is yours, just as long as it’s done within 14-days.
