Microgaming Poker Jackpot

With PokerStars dominating the market it is easy to miss one feature that gives poker players a massive chance of winning a considerable poker jackpot just for playing the same stakes as the table that instigates what is effectively a progressive jackpot bad beat bonus.

Over the Christmad holidays and leading up to New Year the poker netwroks bonus bad beat program paid out a massive five times giving forty-seven players a Christmas and New Year pay-out!

The bad beat bonus pays out if a player is beaten holding a hand minimum of quad twos, so four-of-a-kind twos or higher and the progressive jackpot is paid out in the following manner:

·         40% of the progressive bad beat jackpot goes to the player with the losing hand
·         20% of the progressive bad beat jackpot goes to the player with the winning hand
·         10% of the progressive bad beat jackpot goes to other players at the table the jackpot was triggered
·         10% of the progressive bad beat jackpot goes to other players playing the same stakes
·         20% will go back in to kick start the next Bad Beat Jackpot just in case it is re-triggered immediately



For players to be a part of the bonus, they need to opt in. Opting in means they pay €0.02 every hand they play. This €0.02 is donated to increase the value of the bad beat jackpot. Right now at the time of this writing it is over €20,000, but you can check by clicking on the following link: MPN casino bonus.

In the past the jackpot wasn’t paying out enough in the eyes of the promoters, so in March last year (2013) they reduced the minimum hand limit to being beaten holding quads. Most player’s tactic is to not opt in until they have player at least 4,100 hands as this is probability of landing quads on the flop. However, those more mathematically minded who like to call their pocket pairs will play after around 3,000 hands as there is always the chance of quads on the turn or river.

That still doesn’t guarantee you will be beaten with quads. In fact you will more than likely win, but if you are real poker odds guru and like to invest your pennies in something that gives you massive pay-out odds use the percentages above and calculate how much you’d get using various scenarios from winning the jackpot to playing on at the same stakes as someone who wins quads.
