The online player community marveled this week at a new development in the long-running saga of the Jackpot Poker progressive jackpot at Casino Club. InfoPowa readers may recall that the casino has been embroiled since 2008 in a dispute with a player over a €167,500 jackpot.
The issue has resulted in accusations against the player and the involvement of the Malta regulator, along with the controversial use of a clause in Malta law that gambling debts are unenforceable.
Adding heat to the debate has been a questionable decision by the casino to hold on to the disputed jackpot - which players fund from each wager - long after the case had been finalised.
Last week Casino Club, under some pressure on the forums, agreed to replace the jackpot, and was good for its word, re-fuelling the Jackpot Poker game on October 1st.
Almost immediately, the jackpot was hit again, according to a report on the casino website over the weekend which reads:
"Jackpot Poker just got even better. From the 1st of October the sensational amount of €200,000 has been added to the jackpot of the popular Video Poker game.
"Gavin already hit the jackpot of more than €235,000 in Jackpot Poker."
The jackpot has been reset to €25,875.29 at €5 per hand.
