Bad beat jackpot world record is smashed



Gibraltar – 15th August 2008 – At 23.12 ET on Thursday 14th August the world record for an online poker Bad Beat Jackpot was broken. The industry record previously stood at $992,000 but during frenzied action last night on one lucky table hit a whopping $1,013,381.63!!!

The Bad Beat Jackpot is won on special tables if you lose with a hand featuring four of a kind, 8’s or better and this is what happened to online player ‘Judith75’, from Germany when they hit quad 9’s! With such a hand it has to be very hard to think that you will lose the pot but ‘Hiyall’ from Scotland was sitting with the absolute nuts – a royal flush - a hand that is regarded by many as a 649/739/1 chance! The carnage on the table continued, however, as another player ‘Shoulderguy,’ from Germany, was sat with a full house!

The win came on a $0.50/$1 table and the actual pot itself was only worth $24! With the quad 9’s being beaten by the royal flush, Judith75 won $354,683.57 and hand winner Hiyall scooped $177,341.79 + $24 from the POT!!!! The other players at the table won $22,167.72. That is quite some result! A full hand history of this world record breaking action is attached.

The famous Bad Beat Jackpot is only available on specially designated tables available under the ‘Cash Game’ tab at Of the distributed amount, 50% goes to the loser of the hand who is subject to the bad beat, 25% will go to the winner, and the remaining 25% will be split between the other seated players who took part in the hand. Players who sat out of the hand will not receive a portion of the jackpot. In this case 10 players benefited from the Bad Beat.

A spokesman said: “Online poker history has been made by setting a new world record for a bad beat jackpot. To hit seven figures is quite something! It has been quite some week at We recently celebrated our seventh birthday and smashed the guarantee for our special Birthday Million tournament!”

“Most of the world’s attention this week is focused on elite athletes going for gold. At the same time it seems that the online poker community has found its own gold mine!”

It is not just that has had a big week. One lucky player won $1.06 million on the Godfather slot machine on, while on the 8th August and launched their first £1 million jackpot game.
