It was huge news when the Bad Beat Jackpot at TigerGaming passed the unprecedented level of $500,000. Players flocked to the site in the hopes of cashing big.
The jackpot has now grown leaps and bounds since then and stands at a huge $853,000 and growing!
Playing for the bad beat of your lifetime couldn't be any easier. Simply start playing at any of the bad beat tables with the letter "J" designating them for a chance.
To win the lion's share of the jackpot (35 percent), you must lose a hand with quad jacks or better whenever there are at least four players in the hand. Both you and your opponent must also use both of your hole cards to qualify.
You can even win big even if you aren't the player to "suffer" the bad beat. The player with the winning hand that triggered the jackpot will be awarded half as much as the person that lost the hand. Everyone else at the table will also be awarded handsomely.
The Bad Beat Jackpot is paid as follows:
- 35 percent of the bonus goes to the player who suffered the bad beat
- 17.5 percent goes to the winner of the hand, i.e. the player who caused the bad beat
- 17.5 percent is split evenly among the rest of the table where the bad beat took place
- 30 percent is used to seed the bonus for the next Bad Beat Jackpot
Based on where the jackpot is right now, the player to suffer the bad beat would be awarded almost $300,000. The winner of the hand would bank almost $150,000 and the rest of the table would share another $150,000. Thirty percent of the remaining funds would be used to seed the bonus for the next jackpot.
