With Party Poker’s Bad Beat Jackpot, losing is not necessarily the opposite of winning. Play on one of the Party Poker’s Bad Beat Jackpot tables and you can take home the money instead of screaming for agony because of an unexpected Bad Beat.

How much is it?

Every pot produced by a raked hand played on one of the Party Poker’s Bad Beat Jackpot tables adds a certain amount to the Jackpot. The rate for the jackpot rake collection is at $0.01 per $0.10 pot and can reach up to $0.50 per pot with $5.00 or higher. This means that the jackpot keeps on growing as long as there is someone playing on the designated tables. And it will keep on getting bigger until the jackpot is hit. As of now, there are more than a hundred tables allocated for this promotion. Therefore, the jackpot increases by about a thousand dollars per hour.

From the total amount of rakes collected, 20% will be added to the next jackpot. This is to ensure a handsome amount for every Bad Beat Jackpot. 10% will go to Party Poker as administrative fee. The remaining 70% of the collected rake will be the amount to be given away (total amount paid out). Half of this portion will be awarded to the loser, the Bad Beat. The player who has the winning hand will also take home a part of the jackpot. He or she will be awarded 25% of the total amount paid out.  To top it off, the other players involved in the hand will divide among themselves the rest of the 70%. However, players who sat out during the hand will not receive a part of the jackpot.

How to win?

To win the Jackpot, you have to catch a Four of a Kind 8s, or better. But without a terrible lost the promotion wouldn’t be called the Bad Beat Jackpot. You have to lose with your monster hand.

How to qualify?

The Party Poker’s Bad Beat Jackpot promotion is only applicable to designated tables under the ‘Cash Game’ tab. The winning hand must make the jackpot contribution and must be raked for it to qualify. If two or more qualifying jackpot hands occurred at simultaneously, the hand that started first wins the jackpot. The winning hand should be dealt to four or more active players. By ‘active’, it means that players who sat out during the hand are not counted.

More importantly, the Bad Beat hand should be a Four of a Kind 8s, or better. Both the winning and the losing (the Bad Beat) hands must include the two hole cards. Lastly, a showdown is required. If there are more than two qualifying hands (Four of a Kind 8s, or better), the highest hand will be the winning hand and the second highest hand will be the Bad Beat hand. Players must not reveal their cards to their opponents. It will result to the hand’s ineligibility to join the Bad Beat Jackpot.
