One Lucky PokerStars Player Will Win a Monster-Sized Jackpot in The Deal
Now is the time to play The Deal if you have been on the fence about doing so. The gargantuan jackpot could trigger any minute, and you do not want to miss out.
The Deal is a progressive jackpot mini-game exclusive to PokerStars players playing on the EE, EU, and UK licenses. There are two buy-in levels of 7 StarsCoin or 70 StarsCoin, with the latter increasing players' chances of hitting a life-changing jackpot. Not too dissimilar to video poker, The Deal sees players win prizes ranging from 1-500 StarsCoin, and cash prizes ranging from $10 to $300 for making five-card poker hands.
The biggest prizes become possible if you make a royal flush in a 7 StarsCoin or any straight flush when playing in 70 StarsCoin games. Doing so triggers the jackpot round.
Players are guaranteed a substantial cash prize once they are in the jackpot round, but it is the all-important jackpot that everyone wants to hit. Should the winner-spinner land on the singular jackpot segment, 50% of the total jackpot is awarded to the winner, with the remaining 50% evenly distributed among all players who tried their luck on The Deal within the 12 hours prior to the jackpot hitting.
