Did it change recently? Even the FAQ on page 1 still lists it as 200-500.

Re: Parx Casino (Bensalem, PA) -- FAQ updated 2011.09.08

Concerning the bad beat jackpot - Regulars are the heart and soul of Parx. They are the ones who pay in more accumulated rake than all recreational players combined. Why should anyone have to pay in an extra $1 per hand everyday to a jackpot they will probably never see returned in their lifetime. Plus a percentage of that jackpot goes to advertising, a percentage goes to extra security, a percentage goes to extra man hours to handle it and count it. It's not all coming back to the poker community. And by the off chance, you are struck by lightning and happen to hit the bad beat jackpot, you would have paid so much into the bad beat jackpot in your lifetime that you only break even or lose after paying taxes and tipping the dealer. It'll make games run slower with more fills, more change making, wasting valuable game time. As far as bringing more recreational players and business...NOT TRUE. Those recreational players will only come in when the jackpot is high and when it's hit, business is back to normal. In this process of acquiring the occasional recreational, non-loyal customers, you will be losing the cream of the crop at Parx. The regular customer at Parx who returns day after day and doesn't deserve a $6 rake to pay a non-loyal customer's pipe dream. Plus the regulars will be the ones paying for this frivolous instant lotto, and when the bad beat is high, a stampede of recreational players will win it. Someone who plays three times a year, who didn't pay anything into it, and will not put it back into the poker community. The regulars would much rather go to borgata and pay hundreds in less rake a week if the bad beat ever comes to Parx. Thus Parx majority clientele leaving for good.

If you guys want a serious poker room that is more concerned about keeping its customers than accommodating the hit and run media, you will support Parx in its decision to not have this added nuisance.

Parx is hands down the best casino in PA currently, add a BBJ and they are no longer the best.

Re: Parx Casino (Bensalem, PA) -- FAQ updated 2011.09.08

I think most people play Parx because it is the best option for them. Usually this amounts to it being closer than AC, and better run than Harrah's Chester.

Neither of these will change with the BBJP. There will not be a significant change in traffic with a BBJP vs. without, except for the occasional uptick once it gets big enough to attract the jackpot chasers. The regs will not desert the room (as has been proven time and time again in other casinos) despite all the threats.

I don't know a single player who factors "presence of BBJP" into their decision on which casino to play at. How far away is it, how much are gas and tolls, can I stay overnight, is it well run, etc. are all much much bigger factors.

I do not like bbj or rake at 2/5. How about a comprimise time at 2/5 ($5 per half hour) if bbj comes.

Re: Parx Casino (Bensalem, PA) -- FAQ updated 2011.09.08

I usually play at parx twice a week. I went to AC yesterday to take advantage of the free room offer by Revel. Got there at 3pm and zero games were running and not 1 person was on a list waiting. The floor guy told me it was bc harrahs BBJ was huge and everyone is chasing it.

I walked over to Showboat and played there til 1 am. Room had about 11-15 tables running. People were there for 2 reasons. 1. The BBJ was 600k. 2. Showboat offers a free buffet for only an hour of poker play.

This was the first time I ever walked into the showboat(and the last) and I recognized at least 20 people that I see at parx regularly. Unless these people were driving an hour for a free buffet, I'd say the BBJ is a huge draw to poker players. I could car less about it, but it's the only thing everyone at my table was talking about all night. At least 4 dealers commented on the fact that the actually table we were playing on hasn't been used in over a year, basically meaning the room was extra crowded due to the BBJ and more tables were in play.

Parx will have a BBJ when the poker room gets moved to the new building. It doesn't make much sense to add it before the move as the casual pit gambler won't walk outside to parx east to try to hit it. When poker is in the same building, it will attract pit players who otherwise wouldn't step foot ino a card room.

Of course, it's like that at many places with a BBJ. Those suggesting a BBJ would hurt Parx are just silly. How many places have switched to a BBJ, then switched back or gotten rid of the BBJ? It just doesn't happen, it's not because they lost business and are enjoying the quieter, slower room.
