Bad Beat Jackpot Grows to $473,000 at TigerGaming
Losing big means winning big at TigerGaming thanks to the online poker room's lucrative bad beat jackpot which currently stands at nearly $473,000.
Players can trigger the huge jackpot by losing a hand with quad-jacks or better with at least four players in the hand at designated bad beat jackpot tables.
The big "loser" of the hand will collect a huge 27.5 percent of the jackpot while the "winner" of the hand will walk away with 15 percent of the princely sum. Everyone else at the table will share 15 percent of the jackpot as long as they were dealt into the hand.
Players at other jackpot tables will also reap in some benefits if the jackpot is triggered, sharing another five percent of the jackpot. TigerGaming collects 10 percent of the jackpot as an administrative fee and the next jackpot starts off with 27.5 percent of the last jackpot so there is always something worthwhile for players to play for right away.
The last time the bad beat jackpot was triggered was on Jan. 7 and it was a doozy. "Tyrant" won the most by losing a hand with quad-jacks against his opponent's straight flush and collected a TigerGaming bad beat jackpot record of $273,383.
