  • Absolute Poker $800K Bad Beat Jackpot Finally Hit

    Wednesday, April 1st, 2009 by t2admin

Absolute Poker offers players a unique option when playing online poker. Players can play online poker at the Bad Beat Jackpot tables and have the opportunity to win a substantial amount of money. The only difference is the big jackpot can be won by losing. EMILIE14 is the lucky player whose hand was beat by PEACE2UALL’s Royal Flush.

EMILIE14 hit the jackpot on March 26th after he lost his hand against PEACE2UALL, who held a Royal Flush. EMILIE14 won $270,843.03 of the $800K jackpot while PEACE2UALL won $132,904.14 for beating EMILIE14.

What luck to be one of the other players at the table with EMILIE14 and PEACE2UALL or just playing the AbsolutePoker bad beat tables at the same time as the lucky players! The two other players at the table won $2,678.25 while fifty seven other players won $1,678.25 just for playing at the tables!

The way the jackpot works is that fifty cents is added to the jackpot for each qualifying hand. The jackpot continues to grow until a player loses a hand at the Bad Beat Jackpot tables by someone holding four eights or anything better.
65% of the jackpot is divided among the Bad Beat Jackpot tables while 35% goes to help build the jackpot for the next lucky player…I mean loser!
