If your kings always run into aces and your aces always get cracked, then you luck could change at Party Poker. The legendary poker room look poised to break a world record for the biggest ever Bad Beat Jackpot.
Currently at over $950,000, it is just a matter of time before the $1 million mark is hit and one lucky/unlucky player will be able to retire because of a sick outdraw. The record breaking Bad Beat Jackpot is only available on specially designated tables available under the 'Cash Game' tab at PartyPoker.com and with the chance of a world record being broken (current record $992,000) the tables are as busy as ever. Of the distributed amount, 50% will go 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 (which is a bit of a bad beat in itself).
But before you start thinking that you always lose with ace-king so you are bound to scoop up this prize, don't forget that you need to lose with a hand that is quads eights or higher. The odds of even flopping this hand is remote so losing with it would be a real long shot…..but it does happen.
A PartyPoker.com spokesman said: "The PartyPoker.com Bad Beat jackpot is the original and still the best. The possibility that a world record could be broken has just kept creeping up and is now a serious possibility. We are expecting some serious action on the tables. The problem is it could be hit at any minute, even while I am making this statement!"
It has been a record breaking day for PartyCasino.com as well. One lucky player has just won $1.06 million on 'The Godfather' slot machine!!!!!
