With such a player-friendly payout structure our progressive Bad Beat Jackpot merits your attention – if you’ve not been opting in you’ve been missing out. All you need to be eligible for a share of the booty is to click on the BB icon and then you’re good to go – you get a cut of the money just for playing at the same blind level as the winning hand.
The first of the two recent hits was at an Anonymous €20 max table, with the jackpot standing at €18,880.33 – four of a kind, sevens, lost to JJJJ. Nine players not even seated at the key table had opted in, each earning €209.78…
Then, only a few days later at an Anonymous €100 Max table, there was another hit. The jackpot had returned to a juicy €19,877.19, and four of a kind, fives, ‘lost’ to 8888. €2,236.18 was awarded to 1oib just for being at the same table, while the seven players elsewhere who had opted in are each now €248.46 the richer….
Bad Beat jackpot – don’t miss out! Opt in.
Valentine’s celebrations aren’t just about romance at 32Red – we’re giving away instant €5 awards at our cash tables until a massive €25,000 has been snapped up. It’s all part of our special King of Hearts promotion, which rewards getting a hearts flush.
Apart from adding some spice to your poker in making the prospect of filling a flush in the most ‘romantic’ suit more exciting, King of Hearts is brilliantly simple. This is because you don’t even need to win a pot with your hearts flush to be awarded the €5 prize – it’s enough to merely make the flush. The only condition is that both hole cards are used and the hand reaches showdown.
Starting at 00:00 GMT on February 12th, 2015, King of Hearts will continue until players have been awarded all of the €25,000, the eligible cash tables being No Limit Holdem with minimum blind levels of €0.05/€0.10, and €0.20/€0.40 Fixed Limit Holdem.
Have fun, and keep an eye out for those hearts!
If you still don’t opt in to the Bad Beat Jackpot, then the fact there’s been yet another hit might change your mind – especially when all you need to do to be eligible for a share of the booty is to click on the BB icon. Remember that merely playing at the same blinds level as the jackpot hand is enough to qualify for a share of the spoils.
The latest hit (at an Anonymous €50 max table), with the progressive jackpot at €27,304.46, saw the same hand lose again! Four of a kind – 7777 – lost to mrbad’s JJJJ (earning him a cool €6,143.50). 7Barada777 won €3,413 just for being at the key table!
Meanwhile, only two players had opted in at the same level, thus earning each of them a tidy €682.61 for their forward planning.
Don’t miss out – opt in!
The progressive Bad Beat jackpot is absolutely worth getting involved in, given the potential gains even for those merely playing at the same blind level as the winning hand. All you need to do when playing at these cash tables is opt in by clicking on the BB icon.
Those who opted in during the last few days were well rewarded, with the jackpot being hit twice. On an Anonymous €100 max table, with the running total at €45,475.59, 2222 ‘lost’ to KKKK. Away from the main table only six players had opted in, earning each of them a juicy €757.92… Meanwhile, at an Anonymous €50 max table – the jackpot at €42,931.91 – 3333 was beaten by a devilish 6666, but the ‘loser’ (karralhinho) wasn’t complaining because his share of the jackpot was a cool €18,603.82! This time only two other players had opted in, thus finding themselves €1,431.06 the richer.
Join the Bad Beat quest when next you play cash games at 32Red Poker!
What started out as a small band of players representing 32Red at the Vienna leg of the MPN Poker Tour has taken on unprecedented proportions. The latest player to win a €1,500 package for the €200,000 extravaganza being held at the Montesino Casino, January 21-24 is Martyna Makarove (poker alias: Barbyte), originally from Lithuania but living in the UK and a regular at 32Red Poker since 2008. In fact she managed to win her way to the Austrian capital in a single hand, hitting a royal flush in our €500 Guaranteed, €3 buy-in Flush Royale tournament where the magical ‘royal’ is rewarded with a full €1,500 MPNPT package.
Meanwhile, Maxim Kobeza (C11H12N2O3), from Ukraine, won the Sunday Package final on 6 December, and Simon Millard (Bada_Bing72) from Tunbridge Wells, who played in Dublin, took the 29 November edition – both winning a €1500 package. Don’t forget that you can also win a €550 seat for the Main Event, which is what Dara O’Kearney (HopAlongHnsn) from Ireland (also part of Team 32Red in Dublin) did yet again when finishing 2nd in a €75+5 MPNPT Seat Only Final (2 seats guaranteed). You can even win a special package via Flip format SnG tournaments for €5!
Thus far 18 packages and 9 seats have been won by our players, and we’re proud to say that 32Red, with the most satellites, is the best place to qualify for the MPN Poker Tour! For more information, including the events schedule, CLICK HERE
Forget how many days there are until Christmas – the best date to stick in your diary is 21-24 January, 2016, which is when the MPN Poker Tour will herald its arrival in Vienna. You could be going there as part of Team 32Red by winning a €1,500 package or the €550 buy-in!
As well as the weekly Sunday Package Final (with two packages!), additional package available on Thursdays and a €500 seat every Tuesday, there are currently new SNG Flip Satellites that offer an alternative, fun way to qualify for the €200,000 Main Event. And it’s even possible to qualify for pennies, with first level satellites starting as low as 25c!
Not surprisingly a number of our players have now joined the ranks of the growing Team 32Red squad currently through to Vienna. James Mcgeorge (alias: NickDiaz) from Llangollen in Wales, recently won a €550 seat, while Marko Harkonen (alias: Pipa1888) from Helsinki in Finland won a €1,500 package, as did Piotr Bienia (alias: piter013) from Krosno in Poland.

Our quest at 32Red Poker to see our players enjoy the thrills and spills of the international MPN Poker Tour continues… The next stop is Vienna (21-24 January, 2016), and the MPNPT Sunday Package Final, with two €1,500 packages to play for, saw 32Red players emerge victorious. These were Dara O’Kearney (alias: HopAlongHnsn), who is currently enjoying some good form, and Michael Rettie (UrABawBag2) of Glasgow, who has been playing at 32Red Poker for over 1000 days and whose name regularly appears at the business end of tournament results.
A day earlier, our exclusive Saturday Surprise had as its prize a €550 seat for Vienna and, this time, Simon Millard (Bada_Bing72) made the most of his chances and secured the seat. Having enjoyed a poker tour baptism of fire in Dublin in September, Simon, from Tunbridge Wells, will be waltzing his way to Vienna…
It’s Omaha time at 32Red Poker!
Whether this variant – with players being dealt four hole cards – is your favourite, or you’re yet to give it a try, we’ve got an Omaha bonanza this week in the form of our Four Card Fright Fest. The thrill of the game will get your poker juices flowing, and there’s also a lot of money to be won.
First we have the €12,000 Guaranteed Fright Fest Tournament Series, with two tournaments each night from Monday 26 October, culminating in the €5,000 Guaranteed event at 7.30pm GMT, Sunday 1 November. Note that playing just one hand of Omaha will instantly earn you €5+€0.50 satellite ticket for this €55 buy-in tournament, with satellites at 8pm GMT every night during Four Card Fright Fest.
Meanwhile, you can also get involved in our Added Money Pot Limit Omaha and Omaha Hi/Lo SNGs – the more €1-€20 buy-in SNGs you play, the more added money you can get your hands on (see the Sit & Go lobby for details).
With Team 32Red, groups of online qualifiers, having represented 32Red Poker at the first three MPN Poker Tour events – the most recent being Dublin in September – we’re already building up a formidable looking band of raiders for the next stop on the tour, which will be Vienna, 21-24 January 2016.
Given that the Main Event – held at Montesino Casino in Austria’s grand capital – will have a guaranteed prize fund of €200,000, yet the qualification process starts at a minuscule 25c, it’s a no-brainer when it comes to giving the satellites a go and earning your place at what promises to be a fantastic poker festival.

Join the quest to Vienna now, and win your way on to Team 32Red!
A so-called ‘bad beat‘ – when a seemingly unbeatable hand actually gets beaten – is the poker fan’s ultimate banana skin on the road to fame and fortune. You could be sitting with the best hand you’ve seen in ages, worried only about the ‘problem’ of how to extract the maximum from your unwitting opponent, hoping that they have something big enough to not only remain involved in the hunt but to justify putting their entire stack on the line. Everything might well go to plan, with all available chips in play, but there’s a single, crucial detail causing the ending to this would-be fairy tale to induce a sudden shortness of breath – your monster loses to another monster. Fate has, quite literally, dealt out two enormous hands at the same time and, however mighty your quads looked, there’s no prize for second.
Well, that’s what happens normally. But at 32Red Poker a bad beat could instead be very good news indeed, thanks to our player-friendly, multi-payout progressive Bad Beat Jackpot. Quite simply, the losing hand wins, the jackpot having built up continuously until the above scenario happens – and not only do the other players involved, at the table, receive a share of the spoils, but so does anyone playing at the same blinds level! All you need to do to be eligible is to opt in, which is simply a matter of clicking on the BB icon. And there you go.
The latest hit, for example, was on a €20 max table, with the running total at a massive €51,062… 5555 ‘lost’ to an 8-high straight flush. Only three players had opted in, and each received a juicy €1,702.07 for a mere click.
