October 14, 2009 (CAP Newswire) — When the UltimateBet Bad Beat jackpot reached the $50,000 mark a few weeks ago, the news was received with excitement by online poker players everywhere.
Surprisingly, since then, it's only grown larger — the amount has soared up past the $320,000 mark, and it’s still climbing.
“Should a player have horrific luck, losing their four of a kind of 8's or better on a showdown, they will be entitled to the largest chunk of this jackpot,” explains Glen at USAPlayers.com. “As of now, over $150,000 dollars will go to the lucky loser on that hand, presumably making up for what could be a life time of poker losses.”
Online poker affiliates can count this among the many enticements to offer players itching for a big poker score. “Hesitate not, however,” Glen continues, “as this jackpot could go back to nothing with the blink of an eye.”
