Restrictions on progressive jackpots.

House-banked card room licensees operating progressive jackpots must follow these restrictions and procedures:
(1) Progressive jackpot funds must accrue according to the rules of the game.
(2) At each gambling table, licensees must prominently post the amount of the progressive jackpot that players can win along with any associated pay tables.
(3) Licensees may establish a maximum limit on a progressive jackpot prize. If licensees establish a limit, they must make the amount equal to, or greater than, the amount of the jackpot when they imposed the limit. They must prominently post a notice of the limit at or near the game.
(4) Licensees may connect progressive jackpots. Progressive jackpots are considered "connected" when jackpot prize displays at gaming tables incrementally increase at the same time after players place jackpot wagers. Connected progressive jackpot displays must show the same prize amounts. Licensees may only connect progressive jackpots:
(a) When offered on the same card game on multiple tables within the same licensed location; or
(b) When offered on different card games on multiple tables within the same licensed location when the following requirements are met. Only one progressive jackpot may be operated on a card game at a time and the card games must have:
(i) The same probability of winning the jackpot prize; and
(ii) The same winning hand.
(5) When gambling equipment will allow a progressive jackpot between different manufacturers, the gambling equipment must be submitted for testing for interoperability in accordance with WAC 230-06-050.
