Top 10 Poker Bad Beat Jackpots

Last Updated on October 2, 2018 Author:Adrian Sterne

A Bad Beat Jackpot is a progressive type of jackpot that is often attached to one specific poker game, the idea behind this jackpot is that if one of the strongest poker hands available gets beaten by an even stronger one such as four Aces getting beaten by a Royal Flush at a live poker table, then the player who lost out to the Royal Flush hand, and occasionally every other players involved in that hand picks up a share of the Bad Beat Jackpot.

The beauty of these types of jackpots is that you never know when they are going to hit, and when they do even if you wasn’t one of the two players involved in the final showdown you will still get to pick up a share of the Bad Beat Jackpot payout!
