here in Oklahoma City we have a soft cap on our ace pots what that means is up to $200 everything goes into the ace pot after $200 has been reached we split it 50/50 so if the acepot is $200 and we collect $50 on a mini night the new acepot is $225 with $25 going into a carryover pot.if we fill the carryover to $200 we will start a 2nd using the same 50/50 method.so the original acepot will continue to grow but at the same time were building the next pot.
we dont seperate club members from non-club members as far as who can win the pot now but there has been talk of using a daily pot for non-members as we have people that flock to get a chance at a big acepot that wouldnt normaly show up
also our acepots are not combined we have a seperate pot for each mini
as far as cali players or mulli aces..we pay half the pot for a mulli ace and only pay for the first throw on cali unless you pay a complete second entry then you get paid on either.
No matter how you do it someone will not like it ..my advise "be upfront with the rules to your acepot or mini they may not like it but they knew before they signed up"
