Bad Beat Jackpot
What is it?
Win huge sums of extra cash with our Bad Beat Jackpots. At all cash poker tables of over £0.10/0.20 you can opt in and grab a share of the jackpot. You don’t even need to be playing at the specific table where the jackpot drops – when the jackpot stake drops, all opted-in players will be eligible for a share.
How do I get involved?
The Bad Beat Jackpot (BBJ) is triggered when a hand of 4-of-a-kind or better is beaten at showdown.
To participate in the Bad Beat Jackpot, “opt- in” by clicking the Bad Beat counter at the bottom-right of any qualifying table. You will then qualify, should the Bad Beat Jackpot be hit at your table.
The value of the jackpot contribution is £0.02 per hand. The current jackpot value is displayed in the lobby and on every jackpot table, unless a player has chosen to hide it.
The BBJ has no administration fee and is not raked.
What can I win?
80% of the jackpot is distributed as winnings:
- 40% goes to the losing hand, the Bad Beat winner
- 20% goes to the winner of the hand
- 10% is evenly distributed to other opted-in players at the winning table. This is known as the table share
- 10% is evenly distributed to all opted-in players at the winning table. This is known as the opt-in share.
The remaining 20% is used to seed the next Bad Beat Jackpot.
