    Venetian has one but I believe that is in their daily tournaments only.

    Palace Station may still have one.


    Caesar's Group had one but shut it down Jan. 11th of this year.

    New promos there are:

    4 of a kind $100, Straight Flush $200, Royal $500

    Ace and faces cracked limit games only. Aces and Kings $100, Jacks $50

    Yeah... you'll find plenty of high hand bonuses around at some of the budget friendly properties around Vegas.

    I can't find anything about CET shutting down the mega beat jackpot. It may have happened. I just can't find where they shut it down.

    Confirmed CET bad beat is no more. Stations has a multiple property that starts at a 100k and has a room share. Starts at quad sixes beat and never climbs very high because it gets hit every couple weeks. Mirage has an in house bad beat that is something like aces full beat by quads or better for 1,200. Not a lot of options on this promo that are worth your time IMO.

    According to their website, the Monte Carlo has a high hand jackpot, and something called "9am flush or better morning promotion" which is a little vague. No idea what these pay. If I play here, which is likely, I will report back.

    It shut down in mid January then reopened for a few weeks when they realised there was still money left in the "pot", it got hit at the Flamingo in the middle of Feb so there's no more BBJ.

    The general opinion is that it got hit more often than they expected and the drop off in rake after it got hit due to players playing elsewhere cost them more than the extra rake it brought it when the jackpot got to a larger amount.

    most poker rooms will have some type of promotion running either a "high hand" or bad beat. If you download the bravo poker live app you can see the promo's listed at the top. I believe allvegaspoker also lists the promotions.

    The "high hand" promotions are actually much better for the tourist as your chance of hitting one during your trip is pretty good, wheres, hitting a bad beat is about the same as hitting the lottery.
