Bad Beat Jackpot

It's not a nice feeling to get a bad beat. You just cannot avoid a bad beat even with all your poker skill. That's why we had to design the best bad beat jackpot promotion for our players. Our bad beat promotion not only eases the pain of that gut-wrenching beat you just got, but also gives you a shot at winning our huge jackpot. Even though skill is the deciding factor for winning poker games, you never know when bad luck would come knocking at your door.

Not wild luck, but the simple fact that an opponent may have done better than you, but you don’t know it till it is revealed. In poker, it is not uncommon that a player starts out with a great starting hand that assures victory, only to be outdone by another in the later stages of betting and dealing.

Such an outcome is called a “Bad Beat” in poker. It can be blamed on the fact that even though poker gameplay is  governed by mathematical chance and yet, situations that could be JUST beyond your control or calculation do arise.

At, we respect skill, and want to reward it as often as possible. Recognizing a promising hand takes skill. So, if you suffer from that rare ‘bad beat’ and lose to another player in spite of your skill, we offer you a chance to redeem your losses.

We give you the Bad Beat Jackpot.
