Only days after its re-launch and the first big win, BetVictor's Bad Beat Jackpot paid big once again. This time, on March 21 the Jackpot hit at Euro 377,029, but similarly to the last time, the winner of the bad beat hadn't opted-in, so he stayed without an Euro 150,811 prize!
On the other hand, the winner of the hand who had opted-in was paid Euro 76,976, and another opted in player at the table was paid Euro 39,273, while all other opted in players at the same stake (Euro 1/Euro 2) were paid Euro 1,571 for each table at the same stake at which they were opted in.
On the next day, the Jackpot went berserk again and got triggered at Euro 227,303 at a Euro 1/ Euro 2 table. And once again, the winner of the bad beat had failed to opt-in and missed out on a Euro 90,921 payout, while the winner of the hand who was opted-in was paid Euro 45,460 on top of the pot they had scooped.
Such incredible bad beats triggered a statement from Andy Horne, head of poker at BetVictor, who 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 Euro 426,000 going unclaimed.
'It really is the definition of 'you have to be in to win' and we'd encourage all our cash game players to hit the 'opt in' button or potentially face the bad beat story of a lifetime!"
