Americas Cardroom Bad Beat Jackpot reaches $500,000

31 January 2012

San Jose, Costa Rica –- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Someone at Americas Cardroom is about to laugh all the way to the bank. The Bad Beat Jackpot at Americas Cardroom (Doyles Room) has surpassed the $500,000 mark and is quickly inching into $600k territory. As of yesterday, Bad Beat Jackpot tables were filling up fast with players vying for the shot at a six-figure payday.

The next player to lose a hand of Texas Hold'em with quad eights or anything better while seated at a Bad Beat Jackpot table will pop the Bad Beat Jackpot, sending hundreds of thousands in cash onto the table where the bad beat occurred.

It's all part of the ongoing Bad Beat Jackpot game at Americas Cardroom. The online poker site is softening the blow of losing at the poker tables by paying poker players big money when misfortune strikes. At this moment, the loser of the hand is guaranteed a payout over $100,000.

But it's not just the recipient of the bad beat who walks away a winner. The winner of the hand stands to win 20% of the jackpot, those who participated in the dealt hand will share 10% of the jackpot and 30% is dedicated for reseeding the next jackpot.

The US-friendly online poker site also announced today its largest monthly Points Race yet—a $100,000 test of endurance that includes a $60,000 monthly Points Race and four weekly races using the dealt rake method worth another $40,000, a system that hardcore grinders will love.
