A bad beat jackpot valued at over $430,000 was recently triggered at TigerGaming on July 21.
A player with the screenname "5 Fives" suffered the bad beat of his lifetime and collected a huge sum of $151,711, with other players at the tables also being awarded.
It didn't take too much time for the bad beat jackpot at TigerGaming to climb once again as it is now over $225,000. While the jackpot won't be easy to trigger, it isn't as hard as you may be thinking.
The first step is to find a table where you can qualify for the jackpot. These tables are clearly designated as bad beat tables with a star next to it.
The next step is to grind away hoping for a really huge bad beat that would normally give you nightmares. You can trigger the jackpot if you lose a hand with quad jacks or better while both you and your opponent are using both of your hole cards in a game with at least four players initially dealt cards.
You don't have to be the loser in the hand that triggered the bad beat jackpot, although it certainly helps considering you would walk away with 35 percent of the jackpot. The winner of the hand also is handsomely awarded 17.5 percent of the jackpot and simply by participating in the hand you will be awarded something as the rest of the table will share 17.5 percent. The remaining 30 percent will be used to seed the next jackpot which is one reason the current jackpot was able to grow so fast.
