Hitting the Jackpot

To hit the Bad Beat Jackpot, you need to satisfy the following conditions:

  2. Both the winner and the loser must use both hole cards (two hole cards for PLO/PLO-5) to make the best 5 card hand combination.
  3. Pocket pairs are required for winner/loser’s four of a kinds.
Additional Rules:
• In the case of RIMT (Running it multiple times), only the first run will count towards the jackpot.
• If you have already satisfied the jackpot conditions, rewards will be given even if you leave the table or are disconnected.

Jackpot Payout

All blinds share the same jackpot payout percentage, despite the jackpot being allocated differently for each blind.
Jackpot payout percentage is as shown in the table below.

Recipient Prize
Bad Beat Winner (Pot Loser) – 2nd best hand 10%
Bad Beat Opponent (Pot Winner) 3%
Rest of Players (Other Pot Losers) 0.8%


• Jackpot prize will be awarded directly to your wallet.
• If you have already received your hole cards, rest of players rewards will be given even if you leave the table or are disconnected (even if your hand is automatically folded).
• In Rush & Cash, jackpot will not occur in tables with 5 or less dealt players.

Jackpot Fund

Hold’em, PLO, PLO-5, Short Deck, and Rush & Cash will share the same jackpot fund, with its sole purpose being the prize pool for Bad Beat Jackpot hits and its payouts.
The jackpot fund will continue to grow by reserving certain amounts from Hold’em, PLO, PLO-5, Short Deck, and Rush & Cash.
In other words, your cash prize for hitting the jackpot will always be waiting!
