Ooops! I failed to read and understand your post, 1BB, and was thinking about the possibility that simultaneous wins could happen at different tables. Based on what you've said I would assume the first table to notify "gaming central" would get the jackpot. I wonder what they would say to the holder of the losing hand who placed the wager while the jackpot amount was still displayed. My guess at your question is the odds of having a second royal diamond jackpot win dealt at the same table is about 0.000521975 (5/9579). Mathletes are welcome (and encouraged) to give a better answer.

[Edit: Odds on first hand deal with the burn card not one of the cards needed for a second winning hand: 0.000525365 (25/47586). With the burn card being a card needed for the second winning hand: 0.000420292 (10/23793).]

I'm assuming the second of the two would win the reseeded jackpot rather than nothing.

Example: Jackpot is at \$430,000, two people hit at the same time. One player gets the \$430,000. Jackpot goes back down to \$100,000. Other player wins \$100,000.

The progressive was hit early this week for about \$550K. This is the third time in about 15 weeks. That doesn't tell us much without knowing how much play the side bet is getting. I see so few playing it that I wasn't going to bother posting this. People aren't that interested and from the grumblings that I've heard, it may have to do with betting \$5. They have already tweaked it once but I wonder if they could find a way to lower the bet.

\$1 Progressive is the key for this game to work long term IMHO. The revision to a 10% hit rate with a \$1 bet amount and having a \$100,000+ payout (e.g. 1/5 of the last couple of jackpot pays) hitting three times in 15 weeks......that will have some people playing!

If only you could go there and talk to them but, remember, these are the folks who couldn't figure out what to do with an established game like Blackjack Switch.

When they introduced linked jackpots in the UK I asked this question. It seems they would use the video recording as they (apparently) synchronise the videos every morning. When there's a small payout (I've never witnessed a large one) they used to turn a key and enter the hand and it's payout showed up - in this case the sum was taken from the running jackpot pool (the 5-card poker version). Thus if there was a jackpot payout it would have to be ordered with any other payouts at the time.

I tried to post a Super 4 Progressive bet of \$4 for me and \$1 for the dealer. The dealer immediately informed me I could not place a bet for him on that side bet. The policy makes sense: with a large jackpot the house doesn't want the person handling the cards to have a shot at the money. I was surprised that the refusal was immediate and did not require a consultation with the pit boss. Mohegan Sun trained the staff well in this case!

Kept the bet in place and the dealer had BJ for a \$25 payout, net \$20. The woman playing next to me was posting the progressive bet every hand. Her husband explained that she had a nice win earlier she was intent on giving it back a nickle at a time.

I just got my regular e-mail from Mohegan Sun Pocono and they are introducing the super 4 progressive there as well (not surprising). I have no immediate plans to head out there but I should make the trip in October or early November. Here is the payout according to the e-mail:

Payouts
Royal Flush - Diamonds - 100% - \$600 envy
Royal Flush - Other ---- 10% - \$200 envy
Trips - ---------------- \$100
Straigh ---------------- \$75
Flush ------------------ \$50
Two Pair --------------- \$25
All same coloer -------- \$15
Pair ------------------- \$10
Any hand --------------- \$4
Dealer Ace Up ---------- \$2

* based on a \$1 wager

No indication of the minimum bet.

The bet in Connecticut is \$5. If you multiply the Pocono payments by 5 the only ones that match would be the two envies and the dealer ace up. The rest are less than Ct. Keep us posted if you can.

By the way, here in Ct. the Pai Gow Fortune progressive is at \$1.7 million.
