Coconut Creek goes for tiered high hands

  High hand jackpots have soared past the $1,000-per-hour mark in many instances this year, and now Seminole Casino Coconut Creek has a poker promotion that could yield $2,500 -- if you hit a royal flush.

  The Stax Poker Lounge is going with a tiered high hand jackpot in November for those playing $2-$4 limit and higher. ($2 straight tables are eligible for half.)

   Every 30 minutes from 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., if the high hand is a full house, it's $250; if it's four of a kind, it's $500; a straight flush nets $1,000 and the royal flush (which I've never, ever hit), $2,500.

 During other hours, the high hand is $175 with roll over from 8:15 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 8:15 p.m. to midnight. From 1 a.m. to 8 a.m., it's $150.
