January has already produced a number of changes for Kansas Star Casino's poker players in 2014. Patrons of the poker room will discover that there has been a management change, an increase in the number of tables, and a strengthening of the qualifier to hit the bad-beat jackpot.
The most visible change is the increase in tables. Three tables have been added, bringing the number available to 13. Core games of the room continue to be $1-3 to $2-5 no-limit hold'em and $2-5 pot-limit Omaha.
The bad-beat jackpot qualifier has been strengthened as well. From a set full house qualifier it has been increased to any quads beaten. Jackpots should quickly increase in size due the reduced frequency of the bad-beat being hit. The jackpot drop continues to be a $1 per pot. Game rake continues to be 10% to $40 with an additional $1 when a pot reaches $100.
Doug MacKay is no longer working for Kansas Star as its poker room manager. A replacement has not yet been announced.
