Our €3 buy-in Flush Royale tournament, which is held every night at 8pm (UK time), isn’t just a fun, popular fixture because it’s a cheap buy-in tourney with €500 in guaranteed prizes. There’s also a special prize for hitting a royal flush – namely a fantastic €1,500 package to the next leg of the MPN Poker Tour, which will take place in Tallinn, Estonia, 11-14 August.
A royal flush has always been seen as an extra special kind of ‘achievement’ in poker – if we win a few euros with a royal in a cash game, or one of many hands in a tournament, our excitement is simultaneously tinged with a feeling of disappointment that we didn’t receive any more than is the case with ‘normal’ hands that go our way. However memorable, these events are ultimately no different from when we win with king-high.
This is not the case, however, with Flush Royale, and numerous 32Red Poker players have found themselves with more than just a fond memory after hitting a royal flush. The latest recipient of Lady Luck’s fortune is Ronald Alino (alias: RapsCC). Ronald, who hails from Toronto, Canada, has been a 32Red player for well over a decade. He’s also taken full advantage of the bankroll-friendly satellite structure we provide so that poker enthusiasts can make the most of the qualification process to find themselves at big money poker festivals around the globe. Thus far Ronald has qualified for events in Dublin, Tbilisi and Vienna, enjoying some exciting times both at the tables and in and around a collection of European capital cities.
The €1,500 Tallinn package includes the €550 buy-in for the Main Event, €100 buy-in for the €15,000 side event, four nights for two at the Hilton Tallinn Park Hotel and €250 towards travel/expenses, and this time Ronald won the prize with a single hand after hitting the royal flush.
Here’s how it happened… Dealt Jc 10c, Ronald joined two other players to see the Flop bring Kc 8c Ks. All three checked and the Turn was the Ac, meaning the Qc would fill the magical hand. Put all-in by an opponent holding a K, Ronald duly called and Christmas came a couple of seasons early when the river was indeed the Qc!!
In Ronald’s words…
“32Red continues to offer great tournaments like the Flush Royale. I was lucky enough to win a MPNPT package by winning a hand with a royal flush. I had Jc 10c and called preflop. No one raised and there were two other people in the hand. The flop came Kc Ks 8c. Everyone checked. Turn Ac. First player to act checked, I checked and the other player in the hand shoved all in with Kh 4h. The player who initially checked for some reason used up all the time he was allowed to take – which was over two minutes – and then folded. For those two long minutes I had to continue to play six other tables while carefully avoiding an accidental misclick and folding a royal flush draw. I then called in the hope of the Qc. River Qc. I wasn’t sure if I had won the bonus because no one on the table seemed to notice and/or didn’t care. All I know is that I am going to play in the next MPNPT event thanks to 32Red.
I’ve been to three MPNPT events in the past and it gets better each time. I would say it is a good experience for any poker player. I look forward to playing in the next event and hope to be fortunate enough to win more packages in the MPNPT satellites.”
So after missing a visit to Tallinn when it first played host to the MPNPT last year, Ronald will now get a chance to see Estonia’s pretty capital in August thanks to a hand in a €3 buy-in tournament. Easy game, poker…
Remember that at 32Red Poker there are numerous qualifying routes to MPN festivals, with satellites starting as low as 25 cents! Go to Tournaments > Satellites in the Poker Lobby to see the schedule, and keep tuning in to 32Red Poker to look out for special satellites, too, where you can win €500 MPN seats as well as the €1,500 package.
Have fun, and good luck!
The player-friendly, progressive Bad Beat Jackpot has a payout structure that rewards you even for playing at the same blind level as the winning hand. All you need to do to opt in is click on the BB icon, after which you’re eligible for a share of the money.
And there’s even more to play for, because we’ve added a great bonus prize to the Bad Beat Jackpot at 32Red Poker – now the winner will receive a €1,500 MPN Poker Tour package, too! The next stop on the MPNPT will be Tallinn (11-14 August), and whoever wins the actual Bad Beat Jackpot will also be awarded this fantastic package to the €150,000 festival in Estonia’s picturesque capital.
The most recent hit was at a €50 max table, with the jackpot standing at a massive €51,979.50 – four of a kind, queens, lost to a royal flush! The hand winner, Frodo86, pocketed €11,138.46 for his royal.
A total of 6 players had opted in across the stake, each seeing a juicy €742.56 added to their bankrolls.
Don’t miss out – opt in!
Hitting a royal flush is the ultimate ‘achievement’ for poker players, being the game’s equivalent of golf’s hole-in-one. Our Flush Royale tournament, which has a €500 guaranteed prize pool and runs every night at 8pm (UK time), makes the prospect of getting a royal flush even more exciting by rewarding the lucky recipient with a €1,500 MPN Poker Tour package – a fantastic return for the modest €3 buy-in!
A number of 32Red Poker players have found themselves winging their way to various destinations around the globe – experiencing the thrill of MPNPT live events – after seeing their hole cards combine with the board to produce a magical royal.
The latest is André Silva, from Fernao Ferro, Portugal. Andre, 23, had this to say: “I’m speechless… this must be only the second time I’ve made a royal in four years of poker!” A typical reaction to such good fortune, you might think, but especially so given that he had recently won a package in the MPNPT Sunday Package Final!
Remember that it could be you, so put a note in your poker diary to play the nightly Flush Royale tournament.
As well as the usual qualifying process through satellites and so on (see below), you can also earn your place at the €250,000 Main Event by making a royal flush in our €300 Guaranteed Flush Royale tournament, held nightly at 8.30pm UK time.
With a great value €4+1 buy-in and the option to take advantage of €4 rebuys and a €4 add-on, this is a no-brainer fixture for poker fans, especially when the reward for hitting a royal flush is so attractive.
The €1,500 package includes entry to the $550 Main Event at the prestigious Sports Palace in Tbilisi’s May Square, entry to a $100 Side Event, four nights accommodation at the Holiday Inn (May Square), €400 travel/expenses and an invite to a welcome drinks reception with players and organisers.

Jackpots are good. The word in itself already conjures up a bit of excitement, and the prospect of hitting a jackpot adds a bit of spice to the game, whether it’s for a Bad Beat (when a big hand ‘loses’ to a bigger hand) or for finding yourself with a Royal Flush, as is the case for 32Red’s fun Flush Royale tournament, where a whopping €1000 is waiting for anyone who manages to hit poker’s magical hand using both hole cards.
One such player who did this – and on New Year’s Eve, no less – is LuckyRacoon (yes – someone called Lucky saw good fortune come his way; funny old world). No doubt happy to see in the New Year by playing in the well structured, €250 Guaranteed tournament, LuckyRacoon was dealt Ad Qd, got jiggy with it and the flop came Ah Kd 9s. His opponent had K9 and thus hit two pair, and the poker gods sent through the ether the Jd on the turn and then what must have been a beautiful looking Td to complete the royal flush. And with it a welcome €1000 jackpot.
He had this to say: It was a great start to my 2014, when on New Years eve, i played the 32Red Flush Royale tournament, starting at 9pm, and gaining popularity, day, by day, including a few 32Red regs, and thanks to 1 regular (Juicy-puice) hitting Her 2 pair on the flop, helped me to see the river card, and very fortunately, i hit my royal flush, and in so doing, i had a nice little bonus of €1000. I bubbled the prize pool, but felt only fair to the rest of the players; can’t be too greedy 😉
A big thanks goes out to Nick Diaz, and all at 32Red, for putting on great promotions, and i hope they all continue. You have now got one great big fan
For those looking to get their hands on the jackpot, the Flush Royale tournament is held every night at 9pm (UK time) and has a buy-in of €5+1, 1500 starting chips, 8-minute rebuys, €5 rebuys (1500 chips) and a €7.50 add-on (3000 chips).
Good luck at the tables!Luck
Our Flush Royale tournament goes from strength to strength. Held every night at 9pm UK time, the prize fund has continued to increase to the present €175 guaranteed thanks to the excitement generated by the Flush Royale progressive jackpot.
In addition to the usual battle for the top places (the tension being cranked up by the €3 + €0.30 rebuys and €5 + €0.50 add-on), this offers players the added incentive of showing down a magical royal flush for the lion’s share of whatever the jackpot is at the time, which is exactly what ooblio managed in our latest instalment of the tournament. At that point the ever-growing jackpot had reached a juicy €912.37…
With 50% (€456.19) of the lolly going to ooblio and 25% (€228.09) being used to seed the next Jackpot, 25% (€228.09) was then split between the rest of the players at the Jackpot table, meaning TrickyVi-275, juicy-puice, -CR1ME_P4YS- and Pkrzender trousered €57.02 each for being in the right place at the right time! Not bad for a €3 + €0.30 buy-in.
Thanks to the success of the new Bad Beat Jackpot, with a lower ‘winning’ hand threshold, more frequent wins and a well distributed prize pool, another jackpot that promises to be great fun is the Flush Royale progressive jackpot. This revolves around a nightly multi-table rebuy tournament (with a buy-in of only €3+0.30) so that, as well as gunning for the jackpot as we hunt for a royal flush, everyone is also in the running for the prize money paid out to the top finishers. At least with two bites at quite different cherries we know that even if we’re nursing a short stack there’s still a chance to pocket – or earn a share of – the jackpot.
The quest for poker’s best, magical hand starts every night at 9pm UK time, and the aim of the game is to show down a Royal Flush, of any suit, using both hole cards. Manage this, and you win a share of the Flush Royale progressive jackpot.
Here’s how it works: 50% of the entry, rebuy and add-on fees goes towards the jackpot to keep it ticking along until it is hit, at which point the payout consists of 50% to the player making the Royal Flush, 25% split between the rest of the players at the table and the remaining 25% seeding the next jackpot.
Of course we need to remember that as well as keeping our fingers crossed that Lady Luck helps us find a royal flush (or at least that we’re sitting at the table where the jackpot is triggered), we’re also playing in a tournament, although we could do worse than invest some of our chips in any suited cards 10 or over.
Good luck at the Flush Royale tables!
