When you pull up a chair in your favorite Texas Holdem game at Carbon Poker, not only can you take home some cash for your skillful online poker play, but you can earn a bonus payout for your losing hand when you are dealt a Bad Beat!
Catch a Bad Beat? We’ve all been there. Just when you think you’re going to take down the pot, you lose in a flash on the river when your opponent catches that one outer. Of course it makes you want to scream in frustration and throw your monitor out the window; but now when you play on the listed Texas Holdem Bad Beat tables at Carbon Poker, you just might end up winning anyway! Your big loser can turn into a big winner when you hit the Bad Beat Jackpot that will leave you smiling all the way to the bank!
When you catch four 7s or better, why wouldn’t you go all-in expecting to take the pot? What are the odds that your opponent is holding a higher set of quads, or maybe even a Straight Flush? We all know that no matter what the odds are, bad beats happen all the time and now when you find yourself with such a monster hand, you can hope to get beat so that you can win the huge jackpot instead of just the pot!
The Carbon Poker Bad Beat Jackpot is seeded with $.50 from every pot on all of the specially labeled Texas Holdem Bad Beat ring game tables. The jackpot continues to build until a player takes an eligible Bad Beat and collects the jackpot cash. Each player participating in the hand at the table where the Bad Beat takes place will also receive a percentage of the prize money, while the player with the losing hand will take the lion’s share of 35%! For the Bad Beat Jackpot to pay out, both the winning and losing hands must include both hole cards, at least four players must be dealt in at the start of the hand, and the hand must have generated jackpot rake. Finally, two or more players must be active at the end of the hand, and it must go to showdown.
On the flip side, when you catch a Royal Flush, the best of all hands, you can grab a bonus of up to $500 Free Cash! If you manage to score a Royal Flush with your hole cards while playing at any Carbon Poker real-money Texas Holdem ring game, you will earn a bonus of 100 x the big blind! That means that at a table with $2/$4 stakes, this would calculate to be a cash bonus of $400! So if you feel it is time for you to hit a Royal, the higher the stakes you play - the bigger the bonus you can earn! To be eligible to receive the Royal Flush bonus, a player must win the hand/pot with the Royal Flush and no rabbit hunts are allowed. Also, if the Royal Flush comes down on a Deal It Twice table only the first dealt turn and river qualify for the bonus.
