Absolute Poker Bad Beat Jackpot

5 Jul 2007

Look for Absolute Poker's new 'Bad Beat Jackpot' tables and watch the jackpot grow. Absolute Poker collects $0.50 from the pot of each raked hand. The poker jackpot will keep growing until someone hits an unbelievable bad beat.

What constitutes a bad beat? If you lose a hand holding four eights (8888) or a anything better, that's a bad beat. But at these tables, your luck couldn't be better.

Thanks to your bad beat, everyone at the table will win a piece of the distributed jackpot. And you'll take the majority of the prize.

As soon as someone hits a qualifying bad beat, 70% of the jackpot will be shared between everyone at the online poker table where the bad beat went down. 20% will go towards the next jackpot and 10% will go to the house.

We'll take the new amount and divide it amongst the players seated at the Bad Beat Jackpot table.

  • The loser of the hand – ie. the bad beat victim - will take 50% of the prize
  • The winner of the hand will take 25% of the prize
  • The rest of the players seated at the table will share the remaining 25%

Hit the tables now and discover how good your next bad beat can feel.

Qualifying Terms & Conditions

  • Not all tables qualify for the Bad Beat Jackpot. Look for real money Texas Hold'em tables to play for the jackpot. Bad Beat Jackpot tables will be noted with the word "jackpot" written in brackets after the table name and will be categorized in red text in the lobby.
  • In order to qualify for the Bad Beat Jackpot, four or more players must be dealt in the hand and rake must be collected.
  • The losing hand must contain four eights (8888) or better.
  • Players sitting out at the Bad Beat Jackpot table are not eligible for the jackpot.
  • Both hole cards must be included in the winning and losing hand.
  • The hand must go to a showdown in order to qualify for the Bad Beat Jackpot.
  • If there are two or more hands that qualify for the jackpot within one hand, then the two highest hands will be considered for the jackpot, with the highest hand being the winning hand (the winner) and the second highest hand winning the bad beat (the loser of the hand).
  • Should two qualifying jackpot hands hit at precisely the same time, the jackpot will be awarded to the hand that began first according to AP time.
  • Absolute Poker forbids collusion. All players must act independently and not reveal their hands to other players, nor tell them how to act. Failure to abide by these rules will result in automatic disqualification from the Bad Beat Jackpot. Further action will also be taken.
