Hitting the Jackpot

To hit the Bad Beat Jackpot, you must meet the following conditions:

  1. The hand must come to showdown.
  2. Both the winner's and loser's hand must use both hole cards (two hole cards for PLO/PLO-5) making the best possible combination of 5 cards.
  3. To win/lose with four of a kind, players must have pocket pair
Additional rules:
- In the case of RIMT (Running it multiple times / Running the board more than once), only the first run counts for the jackpot.
- If you have met the conditions for the jackpot, you do get the rewards of the bad beat jackpot even if you have left the table, or are disconnected.

Jackpot Payout

All blinds share the same payout percentage. However, the jackpot is awarded differently for each blind level.
The jackpot payout percentage is as shown in the table below.

Receiver Price
Bad Beat Winner (Loser of the pot) - 2nd best hand 10%
Bad Beat Opponent (Winner of the Pot) 3%
The rest of the players (Other losers in the pot) 0.8%


  • Jackpot prizes are credited directly to your wallet.
  • If you have received hole cards you are eligible for "The rest of the players" prizes even if you leave the table or are disconnected (even if this automatically folds your hand).
  • In Rush & Cash, the jackpot will not apply at tables where 5 or fewer players are assigned.
  • Make sure you know the Poker Rules of the Game before you play


Jackpot Fund

Hold'em, PLO, PLO-5, Short Deck, and Rush & Cash share in the same Jackpot fund, which is only used to pay out the Bad Beat Jackpot.
The jackpot fund continues to grow by setting aside small amounts from the Hold'em, PLO, PLO-5, Short Deck, and Rush & Cash tables.
In other words, there is always a prize for hitting the bad beat jackpot!
You can see the Bad Beat Jackpot prize pool live in the PC client lobby and tables, and in the mobile client.
