TigerGaming's Bad Beat Jackpot Approaches $580K

TigerGaming's Bad Beat Jackpot Approaches $580K 0001
Sharelines
  • It's been three months since “5 Fives” hit the Bad Beat Jackpot at TigerGaming for over $150K. Who is next?

With the TigerGaming Bad Beat Jackpot remarkably up to more than $578,000, now is the time to log on to the site and play for your chance at a piece of the pie.

Since its recent addition to TigerGaming, the jackpot has been hit three times, resulting in six-figure scores for all three of the principal beneficiaries. “ONEnDONE” hit it first Feb. 9, 2017 for $137,178. Since then, “Catfancy” and “5 Fives” have also cashed in on their bad beats for $229,350 and $151,711, respectively, the most recent one being hit on July 21.

Though it sounds too good to be true, all you have to do is get in the game, and you could be next.

How it Works

All players who are active on a Bad Beat Jackpot-designated table are eligible to qualify. At these tables, $0.10 for every $4 in the pot goes into the Bad Beat Jackpot fund up to $0.50 per hand.

Then, if a player loses with four of a kind, jacks or better, the Bad Beat Jackpot is triggered and the payouts ensue.

The jackpot is paid out as follows:

  • The loser of the hand receives 35 percent of the bonus
  • The winner of the hand gets 17.5 percent
  • Remaining tablemates split up 17.5 percent
  • 30 percent goes back into the Bad Beat Jackpot fund to seed the next one

As it currently sits, the next player to lose with quad jacks or better will be more than $200,000 richer, making them at least the second-largest jackpot winner on the site, depending how soon it hits. The person to deliver the bad beat will collect just more than $100,000, while another $100,000 will be divided among the lucky players seated at the table where the bad beat occurred. And remember, these amounts are constantly growing.
