Big Progressive Jackpots at Caesars Las Vegas
Caesars has some of the largest progressive side bets in the country at its Las Vegas casinos.
Side bets at casinos around the country can be as low as $1 and as much as $5 plus the original wager placed. The Caesars jackpots are large for two reasons.
1) The more money that’s in play for each progressive jackpot means there will be a larger progressive.
2) Caesars links all of its Las Vegas casinos progressive jackpots. The following casinos participate in the linked progressive jackpots for all Caesars table games:
- Caesars Palace
- The Cromwell
- Planet Hollywood
- Rio (when open)
The combination of linked progressive jackpots and larger side bet wager equals big progressive jackpots.
Blackjack is one of the most popular games which means more people are playing and winning progressive jackpots. This means the jackpot wins won’t be as high as other games. Six-figure jackpots are no joke but they’re also not large by comparison to other games.
