Jones told that he’s looking forward to watching the Cash Grab promotion play out this month: “It’s not as complex as it may seem at first blush. If you reach the requirements for Super Turbo status, we give you a 50% bonus on top of what you’d ordinarily earn. If the Super Turbo reward is 16 Gold Chips, we give you 24 instead. If the Super Turbo reward is $80, we give you $120 instead. It’s that simple.”
