The jackpot has finally been won! The Jackpot hit was a massive 370k+ Euro payout and this is one piece of news Stan James are more than happy to share with their army of loyal regular poker players.
Stan James Poker is in fact on the Microgaming Poker Network and has been around for many years now in the online environment, they originally started out as a land based bookmaker operating a large chain of betting offices throughout the UK.

The winner of this life changing Bad Beat jackpot winning is a man who lives in Rochdale in the UK and Stan James Poker have only released his first name, that being Peter.
A Bad Beat Jackpot is paid when one certain very high valued Poker hand is beaten in live play by a stronger hand, players have to opt in to get a chance of sharing the jackpot should such hands be dealt out to either themselves or their fellow players.
All of the other players sitting and playing at the Poker table where these two hands had been dealt out, if they opted in received a very generous 47k+ Euro payout each.
Sadly the player who actually won the game had not opted into the Bad Beat Jackpot pool and as such he missed out on his share of the jackpot which was 20% of the prize pool!
This means that this 20% share is now carried forward and has been added to the current Bad Beat Jackpot which is now starting to grow quite quickly. If there is a lesson to be learnt from this news it is that if you are playing at a Poker site such as Stan James Poker on a Poker game offering such a Bad Beat Jackpot then always make sure you opt in or you could end up missing out on that huge jackpot or a share of it, like the winner of the base game did.
