Whenever you take your seat at a real money cash table, you’ll earn points towards our weekly leaderboard. 

Players love The Beast because there’s no extra fee to participate.  Instead, we use part of the rake to fund the prize pool. The Beast’s progressive jackpot grows as hands are played.  Of course, The Beast is as fierce as its name suggests.  So far, we’ve given away a whopping $15,812,835!
