Bad Beat Jackpot Hit!
With increased activity in online poker, it’s not surprising to see another jackpot being hit – this time in the form of the Bad Beat Jackpot…
Don’t forget to opt in!
The Bad Beat Jackpot sees the loser in a massive hand actually win the BBJ, so that if the poker gods turn your would-be winning monster into a loser, you’ll be rewarded by receiving the lion’s share of the progressive jackpot! However, you’ll only benefit from the BBJ’s player-friendly payout structure if you’ve remembered to opt in, and you do this by simply clicking on the BB icon when sitting down to play at an eligible Cash table (€0.10/€0.20 minimum blinds) on our Classic software.
Latest BBJ hit
Yesterday saw a BBJ hit when two very big hands clashed at a €50 max table. The running total at the time had reached €29,278 when four of a kind (fives) ran into an 8-high straight flush.
Note that if you’re playing at the same stakes when the BBJ hits you’ll win a chunk of the booty as long as you opted in. As it turned out, only one player had done so, and was subsequently the recipient of a €2,927 payout…
Meanwhile, with the Bad Beat Jackpot being decommissioned next month, make sure you have any of your unused contributions returned by simply logging on during 2020 (before 4th May). Also, any excess funds will be paid in out in a special Freeroll on 18th May!
Log on, opt in, good luck and have fun!
