New Year bonanza from BetVictor Poker

Online poker site’s bad beat progressive jackpot has topped €484,000 and could be hit any day.

Friday 28th December 2012

One lucky online poker player could be about to start 2013 with a life-changing amount of money after the total amount on offer from BetVictor Poker's bad beat progressive jackpot topped €484,000. BetVictor Poker's bad beat progressive jackpot has not been hit in over five months, the longest such drought since the promotion’s launch in September of 2006, with the current prize of €484,214 the second highest. “Everyone is holding their breath in anticipation of the jackpot being landed,” said Andy Horne from BetVictor Poker. “But the beauty of it is that no one knows when it might hit. The only thing we know is that to be in with a shot of getting lucky you have to be at the tables and be unlucky so we’re not sure whether to wish our players good luck or bad luck. Either way, may the luck be with you.” To be eligible to take home the bad beat progressive jackpot, competitors must be playing at €0.50/€1 to €3/€6 no-limit hold‘em tables and lose a hand holding at least a four-of-a-kind containing eights or better. The loser of any such hand will then pocket 50 percent of the total bad beat amount with the remaining amount split between the overall winner and the remaining participants.
