  • B&M Bad Beat Jackpots

    I have played in several brick and mortar casinos in the USA and Canada. The Bad Beat Jackpots have all the typical rules, like both cards in your hand must play, so much money required in the pot, etc.

    What I would like to know is, What is the most ridiculous (ie - the most difficult) bad beat hand you have seen?

    There is one reason for my asking this question - I suffered a bad beat, AAAKK, losing to Royal Flush. Everyone at the table thought we had the bad beat jackpot, but found out the house had upped the losing hand to QUAD 5's. At 40%, I would have taken home $29000, minus taxes.

    So, what bad beat standards have you seen?

        Wow, Quad 8's! Never heard of it that high. I was not even aware of the house having a bad beat jackpot until the locals thought we had hit it. Next time I will ask.

          Was in a bar league final tournament. That means that you play each week in your local pub and winners get certificates...more you win, the more starting chips at the final tourney which they did about every 3 months I guess...anyway.. at the beginning of the tournament the director makes a few announcements including a bad beat jackpot. You had to have quad Aces and lose to qualify.
          After laughing, I thought...why waste our time with this announcement? It was not paid.

              Hey Barry, that was a bad beat, but I may have mislead you by the bold blue text. The topic of the thread is B&M Bad Beat Jackpots. My intention is to find out the standard, if there is such a thing, for the minimum hand to hold and still win the cardroom's bad beat jackpot.

                The bicycle in LA used to be aces full back in the day, not sure what it is now. Won it w/ quad 2s against quad aces (7 stud) was sweetest loss I ever had (14,000+) and that was huge back then (mid 80's)
