Caesars has been an innovative casino company for a long time, setting trends that other operators all over the world also applied later. Jay Bean is the Vice President of Caesars Enterprise Table Games, and he has announced some really exciting changes that could revolutionize the way table games work in Caesars’ casinos.
Bean admitted to being envious of all the video slot games with progressive jackpots that eventually became an essential part of many slots. Whenever you play a progressive jackpot slot, you get an opportunity to win a huge prize which is the product of many people placing bets. As long as nobody wins a progressive jackpot, the final prize will continue to rise. At the moment someone wins the jackpot, the prize resets to the lowest set value and continues to grow once again as new players come to play.
Bean stated that table games had always been a very simple product that involved only cards, dice, and chips. Unlike slots, which are continually being upgraded, table games pretty much remained the same with a couple of variants that were offered to the players. According to Bean, table games were never able to offer a life-changing sum of money to lucky players.
However, the officials at Caesars decided to put an end to such a division and, in a way, revolutionized how table games work, making them more inviting to the casino game lovers. This huge change has been happening for more than a year as Caesars has slowly been introducing progressive jackpots to table games. This concept was always associated with slot machines, but it seems that it has found its way into table games as well, and Caesars officials are very happy with how things are going when it comes to this novelty.
The History of Table Games Progressive Jackpots
The first progressive jackpot in table games was introduced after Caesars unveiled a Fortune Pai Gow Poker Progressive Jackpot all over Nevada last years. Not long after that, they did the same for all their blackjack games as well as poker derivative tables. In other words, progressive jackpots at table games were all over Nevada starting 2019.
The expansion was pretty quick and, at the moment, they have approximately 270 table games that have progressive jackpots. There is a total of 140 poker derivative tables, 90 blackjack tables, and 40 pai gow poker tables. These are spread across 12 properties in the state, becoming the biggest linked table network in the country.

Bean also added that the officials at Caesars loved the new addition to their table games as players really seemed to enjoy it and as they couldn’t be matched by other competitors. Furthermore, he added that smaller places such as Reno and Laughlin had a huge benefit as they would never be able to make a $2 million progressive jackpot on their own. Now that they are a part of this huge casino network, the progressive jackpot created by all players from all Caesar casinos will be accessible even to the players who visit those properties.
A couple of players were also lucky enough to win the progressive jackpot, and the three luckiest ones managed to win jackpots which were over a million.
