|To qualify for the Jackpot
||- The losing hand must contain Four-of-a Kind, 8's or better.
- Four or more players must be dealt into the hand.
- The hand must be a raked hand and the Jackpot contribution is collected from the hand.
- The best hand of the winner and
the loser must include both the hole cards, and the hand must go to a showdown.
The Jackpot contribution is only collected once during a hand.
The value of the Jackpot contribution is $0.50. Once the rake has reached $1.00, an additional $0.50 is taken for the Bad Beat Progressive.
The Jackpot contribution is displayed as a separate rake chip stack, to the right of the normal rake chip stack, on the chip tray.
Jackpot contributions are accumulated until the Jackpot is won.
The current Bad Beat Jackpot value is displayed in the Lobby and on every Jackpot table.
The Bad Beat Jackpot applies to specified tables only. Players must be seated at one of these tables and actively participate in the hand to qualify for any payouts.
Players can qualify for the table share of the Jackpot if they were dealt into the hand but folded before the showdown.
If the minimum number of players does not participate in the hand, the hand does not qualify for the progressive and the progressive rake is not taken.
If there are more than two hands involved in a Bad Beat in a hand, then the two highest hands are considered for the Jackpot. The higher of the two hands is the winning hand and the other hand wins the Bad Beat.
In the event that two qualifying Jackpot hands occur at the same time, the hand that is completed first is awarded the Bad Beat Jackpot.
Players must play their hands independently. Players cannot tell opponents what to do or to reveal their hand to other players. Any contravention of this will result in the hand being disqualified for the Jackpot.

||- 70% is distributed as winnings:
||+ 50% to the losing hand, the Bad Beat
+ 25% to the winner of the hand
+ 25% evenly split between the other Players who actively participated in the hand
