What is a Bad Beat Jackpot?

You feel like screaming. You claw at your hair in agony. You’ve just lost a huge pot to a really bad suck out. You just took a really Bad Beat. Though instead of the agony and frustration…what if there was cash. Lots of cash. More cash than you could count.

Well if you’re playing on the listed bad beat tables at CarbonPoker your worst bad beat may become the best hand you ever play with the massive Bad Beat Jackpot. In any Texas Hold’em game, you will be looking to maximise your value when you pick up Quads. The chance to go all-in is automatic, but what happens if your opponent is holding higher Quads, or even a Straight Flush?

These are the worst of the Bad Beats, though with the Bad Beat Jackpot, these hands could see you pocketing thick wads of cash.

The jackpot is seeded by taking 50 cents from every pot on the specially labelled ring game tables. As soon as a player has a monster hand cracked, the jackpot will be won, with every active player at the table receiving a portion of the prize money! The player with the losing hand will pick up the biggest percentage, so if you have Quad sevens or better using both hole cards, you should definitely hope to get beaten!
