      Bad Beat Jackpot Table rules:

      1. Bad Beat Jackpots will be paid out on the real money Hold'em games available titled 'Jackpot' under the Cash Games tabs.
      2. Four or more players must be dealt into the hand. Players sitting out do not qualify for the jackpot.
      3. We will take $0.50 each raked pot ($5.00 pot minimum) as a Bad Beat Jackpot rake.
      4. A 10% administrative fee will be taken out of the Bad Beat Jackpot pool.
      5. A jackpot is hit when a player with four 8s or better is beaten.
      6. The best hands of both the winner and the loser must include their hole cards, and the hand must go to a showdown.
      7. The hand must be raked and the jackpot contribution collected from the hand in order for it to qualify for a Bad Beat Jackpot.
      8. If more than two players qualify for the jackpot within one hand, the two highest hands will be considered for the jackpot. The highest hand will be treated as the winning hand (the winner) and the second-highest hand as the bad beat (the loser of the hand).
      9. In the event that two qualifying jackpot hands are hit at exactly the same time, the hand that started first (based on our system clock) will be awarded the jackpot.
      10. Players must play their hands independently and cannot tell opponents how to act or reveal their hand to other players. Violations will disqualify the hand from the jackpot.
      11. 50% of the amount will go to the loser of the hand (the bad beat), 25% to the winner, and 25% will be split between the other seated players who actively participated in the hand (any player who was sitting out will not receive a portion of the Bad Beat Jackpot).
