Regular 32Red players have no excuse for not opting into the progressive Bad Beat jackpot when at the cash tables. Apart from the potentially massive payouts for the winning hand (which goes to bad beats such as four kings losing to four aces), as well as those involved in the pot and at the table itself, anyone playing at the same blind level of the hand in question is also eligible for a share of the jackpot! As long as you click on the BB icon to opt in, you’re in the running for a chunk of cash when the jackpot hits.
And, just to remind you that this does indeed happen more frequently than you might imagine, the jackpot has been hit three times during a four day period! First, on €20 max table, with the running total at a whopping €50,215.48, four queens ‘lost’ to four kings. Even the 18 players who had opted in at that blinds level enjoyed a generous payout, each receiving €278.97 for their shrewdness. Not long after, on the same day(!), there was another hit, this time on a €50 max table, 2222 being pipped at the post by 4444. The Jackpot was then at € 45,329.52, so the 10 additional opted in players at the same stake pocketed €453.29…
Within three days history repeated itself, again at a €50 max table, and the excitement must have been almost unbearable when, with the progressive jackpot at €43,499.12, KKKK came up against a straight flush. 15 players had wisely clicked the BB icon to be opted in and, due to their playing at the same stakes, were rewarded with €271.86 each!
Get involved with the Bad Beat Jackpot, have fun, and good luck!
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.

After the Flush Royale Jackpot was hit recently when someone flopped a royal flush to pocket the €1,000 jackpot, another 32Red Poker player has seen the magical hand materialise in front of him – and this time the prize is a €1,500 package for the Tbilisi leg of the MPN Poker Tour! The latest lucky winner is Darrell Hewitt, from Mablethorpe, UK, who plays under the alias UFO003. Having been dealt Ad Jd he called a pre-flop all-in bet, and must have been pleased to see the flop bring Qd Td 3h… The nut flush was filled when the Turn brought the 5d, but Christmas came early when the River card was the Kd, filling the royal flush and sending Darrell on his way to Georgia’s historic capital for the €250,000 Main Event…

Jackpots are good. The word in itself already conjures up a bit of excitement, and the prospect of hitting a jackpot adds a bit of spice to the game, whether it’s for a Bad Beat (when a big hand ‘loses’ to a bigger hand) or for finding yourself with a Royal Flush, as is the case for 32Red’s fun Flush Royale tournament, where a whopping €1000 is waiting for anyone who manages to hit poker’s magical hand using both hole cards.
One such player who did this – and on New Year’s Eve, no less – is LuckyRacoon (yes – someone called Lucky saw good fortune come his way; funny old world). No doubt happy to see in the New Year by playing in the well structured, €250 Guaranteed tournament, LuckyRacoon was dealt Ad Qd, got jiggy with it and the flop came Ah Kd 9s. His opponent had K9 and thus hit two pair, and the poker gods sent through the ether the Jd on the turn and then what must have been a beautiful looking Td to complete the royal flush. And with it a welcome €1000 jackpot.
He had this to say: It was a great start to my 2014, when on New Years eve, i played the 32Red Flush Royale tournament, starting at 9pm, and gaining popularity, day, by day, including a few 32Red regs, and thanks to 1 regular (Juicy-puice) hitting Her 2 pair on the flop, helped me to see the river card, and very fortunately, i hit my royal flush, and in so doing, i had a nice little bonus of €1000. I bubbled the prize pool, but felt only fair to the rest of the players; can’t be too greedy 😉
A big thanks goes out to Nick Diaz, and all at 32Red, for putting on great promotions, and i hope they all continue. You have now got one great big fan
For those looking to get their hands on the jackpot, the Flush Royale tournament is held every night at 9pm (UK time) and has a buy-in of €5+1, 1500 starting chips, 8-minute rebuys, €5 rebuys (1500 chips) and a €7.50 add-on (3000 chips).
Good luck at the tables!Luck
Thanks to the success of the new Bad Beat Jackpot, with a lower ‘winning’ hand threshold, more frequent wins and a well distributed prize pool, another jackpot that promises to be great fun is the Flush Royale progressive jackpot. This revolves around a nightly multi-table rebuy tournament (with a buy-in of only €3+0.30) so that, as well as gunning for the jackpot as we hunt for a royal flush, everyone is also in the running for the prize money paid out to the top finishers. At least with two bites at quite different cherries we know that even if we’re nursing a short stack there’s still a chance to pocket – or earn a share of – the jackpot.
The quest for poker’s best, magical hand starts every night at 9pm UK time, and the aim of the game is to show down a Royal Flush, of any suit, using both hole cards. Manage this, and you win a share of the Flush Royale progressive jackpot.
Here’s how it works: 50% of the entry, rebuy and add-on fees goes towards the jackpot to keep it ticking along until it is hit, at which point the payout consists of 50% to the player making the Royal Flush, 25% split between the rest of the players at the table and the remaining 25% seeding the next jackpot.
Of course we need to remember that as well as keeping our fingers crossed that Lady Luck helps us find a royal flush (or at least that we’re sitting at the table where the jackpot is triggered), we’re also playing in a tournament, although we could do worse than invest some of our chips in any suited cards 10 or over.
Good luck at the Flush Royale tables!

Very few things in life can’t be tweaked to our advantage and, as exciting as the Bad Beat Jackpot has been at 32Red Poker, the latest version, which comes into effect today, promises to put smiles on more faces and thus make our quest all the more promising when hunting down the elusive ‘losing’ jackpot hand at the Bad Beat tables.
Whereas we have been used to the only recipients of the jackpot being those at the actual table where the hand was finally played (where the minimum blinds were €0.50/€1), the all-new Bad Beat Jackpot enables players sitting at any of the €0.10/€0.20 or higher special Hold’em tables a chance of poker riches, just by virtue of opting in!
And opting in is done simply by clicking the Bad Beat icon found at the bottom right of every qualifying table. After that we contribute 2 cents per hand toward the jackpot and (the point…) everyone opted in at their particular stake is then eligible to win a piece of the jackpot when the hand finally does appear somewhere.
As for hand criteria, there is good news here, too, as the losing hand, which used to have to contain four of a kind 8s or better, has now been downsized to a lower four of a kind 2s or better. And the jackpot hits even if those involved in the actual Bad Beat aren’t opted in!
Now that the action is going to hot up considerably on the Bad Beat tables as everyone will be going with any pair, we might as well acquaint ourselves with how the jackpot is distributed. In order to keep the ball rolling, 20% of the total is used to ‘seed’ the new jackpot, so the remaining 80% is shared out as follows:
- 40% goes to the Bad Beat Jackpot winner (i.e. the player with the losing hand at showdown)
- 20% goes to the player with the winning hand
- 10% is shared between the remaining players at the table triggering the jackpot
- 10% is shared between the players at the same stakes!
