What is a Bad Beat Jackpot ?
A Bad Beat jackpot is offered by Pokamaax when a very good hand loses to an even better one. Its a way to comfort the players and reward everyone at the table !
You can see the current state of the Bad Beat Jackpot on Pokamaax software at all times.

Dante holds KK
The community cards are: K-10-A-K-A
Dante would have four of a kind Kings but still loses to Stewart who holds four of a kind Aces.
In this case, Dante receives 35% of the total jackpot, Stewart gets 20% and the rest of the players at the table split another 20%!

How is Pokamaax’s Bad Beat Jackpot split ?
First, know that we have two Bad Beat Jackpots on our Hold’Em tables : The Miami Jackpot on $0,15/0,30, and the Vegas Jackpot on $1,50/3.
Then, here is how the Jackpot are divided :
– 35% for the player who suffered the bad beat, i.e. had the second highest winning combination, at least four twos.
– 20% for the winner of the hand, i.e. The player with the highest winning combination.
– 20% shared evenly between the other players who were dealt cards that hand.
– 25% will be used as a basis for the new Bad Beat Jackpot.
