Americas Cardroom features a wide range of promotions, one of which is a Bad Beat Jackpot. The jackpot is distributed whenever a player at a Bad Beat Jackpot table loses a hand with Quad 8s or better.
The "loser" of the poker hand would receive the largest share of the jackpot, followed by the player who placed the bad beat and then the other players who participated in the hand.
The jackpot itself is currently nearly $350,000, and that money comes from a contribution taken from each hand played at Bad Beat Jackpot tables.
Until now, the maximum contribution towards the jackpot was $0.50, but that is being reduced to $0.25.
While such a change may not seem significant, this may have a serious impact on the profits of players who play at Bad Beat Jackpot tables. For example, if a table is playing 80 hands per hour, this new change means that the players at the table are paying a full $20 less in jackpot contribution now.
Perhaps the best part of all is that the current jackpot remains unchanged. At half the cost, players can still attempt to win the massive (nearly $350,000) jackpot that currently exists, which was seeded by contributions at the previous level.
Basically, it's a good time to try and get lucky at Americas Cardroom. Or should we say "unlucky"?
