GTECH G2’s IPN Poker Network Pays Out €507,144 Bad Beat Jackpot

Bad Beat Jackpot at Europe’s Largest Independent Poker Network Easier to Win than Most

Wednesday 30th December 2009

Bad Beat Jackpot at Europe’s Largest Independent Poker Network Easier to Win than Most 30-12-2009 (Stockholm, Sweden) – A player on GTECH G2’s International Poker Network (IPN) hit the network’s massive Bad Beat Jackpot this week when his Quad Kings lost to a Royal Flush. A player known as 72osROCKS!, the loser of the hand but winner of the Bad Beat Jackpot, received €177,500. Hand winner Nogis22 got €88,750 and the other three players at the table each won €29,583. “I was pretty EXCITED when I found myself holding four Kings,” said the winner, “My heart sank when I saw my opponent’s Royal Flush – but that changed quickly when I realized I was playing at a Bad Beat table!” The Bad Beat Jackpot was created to help ease the frustration of losing even when you’re dealt great cards. With a jackpot requirement starting at Quad 6s, the IPN’s Bad Beat Jackpot is easier to win than most. To qualify for the Bad Beat at IPN poker rooms, players must be at a designated Bad Beat table and use both pocket cards in their winning or losing hand. The losing hand must be four-of-a-kind sixes or better. Four or more players must be dealt into the hand. The IPN is Europe’s largest independent Poker Network. It recently celebrated its 3,000,000th player and dealt its billionth hand last year. The IPN includes such popular poker sites as VirginPoker.com, PokerHeaven.com and the Casino-Club.com poker room. There is a list of International Poker Network poker sites at http://www.ipnpoker.com/ipn_poker_rooms/area-52.html. GTECH G2 is the igaming division of lottery industry giant, GTECH.
