Jackpot Digital’s Jake Kalpakian: “Jackpot Blitz is Different than Other Automated Tables”

In the business world, one of the key things to have is a leader that not only knows his product and audience but also has the vision to move forward in that industry. Jake Kalpakian, the Chief Executive Officer of Jackpot Digital, is arguably one of those people. Through his vision and leadership, he has moved Jackpot Digital from mobile phones into the casino gaming industry and, by extension, into the poker arena. Jackpot Digital’s major offering for the poker world is its entirely automated table known as Jackpot Blitz. The Jackpot Blitz table will be making its debut in 2018, but it has roots that stretch back a decade. With Kalpakian helming the company, the Jackpot Blitz table may make more of an impact on the live poker world than its predecessors did. Poker News Daily had a chance to speak with Kalpakian recently, where we learned more about

Poker Players Await Ruling on Stations Casino Bad Beat Jackpot Denial

When you think you have the goods in a poker hand and lose big, it hurts. But when you think you have the goods, lose big, but in turn hit a casino’s Bad Beat Jackpot, it feels amazing. Now take that to the next, depressing level and think you won the Bad Beat Jackpot only to have the casino say, “Not so fast, my friend.” That is the situation facing poker players who were playing at the Station casinos on July 7th at about noon. According to a report by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Len Schreter beat Avi Shamir in a poker game at Red Rock Resort with a straight flush over straight flush. As this qualified for the Bad Beat Jackpot (it looks like Aces full must be beaten and both hole cards must be used; if Aces full, one hole card must be an Ace), a sign lit

Can Jackpot Digital Change Minds Regarding Automated Poker Tables?

One of the things that can be said about poker players is they are set in their ways. Perhaps it is because of the nature of the game, doing things with a certain repetition as to not give up any information, that causes this staid nature. It can be seen in some poker player’s reactions to what is an eventuality in the world of casino games, the move towards automation. Check out any gaming convention around the world and see just what is being put out as the “next big thing” in casino gaming. It is automated tables, using video games and/or video production instead of putting physical gaming product (dice, cards, chips, etc.) on the floor. Blackjack games are becoming digitalized, with no cards or chips in sight, and other games like baccarat and roulette are also moving in that direction. While this may have been a recent phenomenon,

Bovada Launches Jackpot Sit & Go’s

It took long enough, but Bovada Poker finally joined the year 2017 and launched its own version of the Lottery Sit & Go called Jackpot Sit & Go. Actually, I shouldn’t be harsh in such a sarcastic tone, as Bovada only recently brought its online poker room back to life after selling it to Ignition Casino, so I suppose this was really pretty quick work on Bovada’s part. The Jackpot Sit & Go doesn’t really vary much any other poker offering of its type. It is three-handed, blinds go up quickly, stacks are short, and the winner takes the entire prize pool except in instances where that prize pool is excessively large. And, as usual, the prize pool is determined by a random spin before the game starts, calculated as a multiple of the buy-in. The table of possible prize pool multiples and their buy-ins: 2x – 74,995 in 100,000
