Andy Horne, head of poker at BetVictor, said,

What an incredible start to our new Bad Beat Jackpot. We couldn’t have written a script as dramatic with the Jackpot paying out three times in four days, winners losing, losers winning and EUR426,000 going unclaimed. It really is the definition of ‘you have to be in to win’ and we’d encourage all our cash game poker players to hit the ‘opt in’ button or potentially face the bad beat story of a lifetime!

From the 19th of March, those players who would like to get involved with the Bad Beat Jackpot, will have to make use of the new ‘opt-in’ option available at all cash tables which are above EUR0.10/EUR0.20c. After they have opted-in, they will have to contribute 2c to the Jackpot for each hand played.
