Our Visitors Have Hit

So far that we know of two players that have visited our site have hit these bad beat jackpots. We got word that two players hit a jackpot on the same day, one winning $128,000 and another person from here was sitting at the same table and won $18,000. The main winner won $258,000 for his quad fours getting beat by quad sevens. Those are two unlucky lucky guys! This was one of the biggest jackpots that we know of that our players have hit, but there surely have been more, and they do happen on a daily basis!

Not Just Playing Online

Bad beat jackpots have been becoming more and more popular at live based 'brick and mortar' casinos. If you navigate our site you'll find our expanding section of casinos that have bad beat pots. The rules tend to change quite a bit for these jackpots so it's always good to ask the dealers what the requirements are.

A Couple Quick Tips

Right now, I'd have to say if you're going to play online, do so at They have a large player database so the bad beat jackpot is constantly rising and falling. Of course, you want to play when it's peaking. BetOnline is also a poker site accepted from the US. There's really no point in playing in my opinion if the jackpot is low because we pretty much always have one site listed where the jackpot is over $100,000.

PokerStars or Full Tilt Jackpots

Because these two sites have the most players of any sites out there combined (even though they don't accept USA players), there is a real possibility for some mega jackpots to happen. It is something we've talked to Pokerstars and Full Tilt about having but at this time they are not adding any poker jackpot tables. Despite this, we still see demand because the jackpots could get into the 10,000,000 range if done properly, along with daily $1,000,000 jackpots. It is our intention to stay on top of these two sites to bring you the mega jackpots. Anyways, for now good luck on getting unlucky!

The Bad Beat Jackpot applies only to Texas Hold'em ring games, either limit or no-limit.

In order to qualify for a Bad Beat Jackpot, the hand's pot must have had a minimum of $5.

A Bad Beat Jackpot will be paid out if a minimum of Full House loses to Quads.

Many places with a bad beat jackpot require both the winning and losing hands to use both of their hole cards. Fight Club Poker uses relaxed hand requirements so that the Bad Beat Jackpot is paid out more often. Quads is the only hand that must use both of their hole cards. Also, quads must have pocket pair. All other qualifying hands (Straight flush winning and losing hands, and full house losing hands,) need only use one hole card.

If there are multiple full house hands that lose to Quads on the jackpot hand, the high ranking full house wins the Bad Beat Jackpot.

Bad Beat Payout

  1. The losing hand is paid 50% of the Jackpot (The lower ranking hand)
  2. The winning hand is paid 10% of the Jackpot (The higher ranking hand)
  3. The remaining 40% is split between all players dealt into the Jackpot hand. (including the winning and losing hand)
