Station Casinos kicked off the holiday season last week with the debut of a progressive triple play video poker game, "Station Casinos Triple Play Progressive Link." The linked machines will be in six of Station’s gaming properties in Las Vegas.

Triple Play Progressive Link will be the only progressive game linked between locals’ casinos in Nevada. It’s exclusive to Station Casinos.

It will be offered in nickel and quarter denominations at Palace Station, Boulder Station, Texas Station, Sunset Station, Wild Wild West and Barley’s Casino & Brewing Co.

It links daily denominational play from the six properties, where the game carousels will feature two progressive meters displaying jackpots for a Station Casinos’ traditional Reversible Royals hand and a standard Royal Flush hand.

The 25-cent jackpot for Reversible Royals will start at $37,500, and $3,000 for a standard Royal Flush. The nickel jackpot for Reversible Royals will start at $7,500 and $600 for a standard Royal Flush. All maximum jackpots will be based on maximum coin play.

"This new game combines two of the most popular elements of slot play in gaming today, progressive and triple play, with one of Station Casinos’ original video poker trademarks, Reversible Royals," said Blake L. Sartini, executive vice president and chief operating officer. "We think it will be a winning entertainment combination for everyone who enjoys video poker."

IGT’s Triple Play video poker has been the hottest video poker machine to hit the casino in years. Available in most formats -- Bonus Poker, Deuces Wild, Double Bonus, etc. -- it features a dealt hand, plus two additional "draw" hands. In effect, the player has three games going on at once, and three times the payoffs!
