Texas Hold'em poker tables at UltimateBet are boasting record numbers in players due to the Bad Beat Jackpot sitting at over $560,000. The site seems to give out their jackpots to more online players and experts believe this is why the site has seen an increase in their traffic flow. "This is our highest ever Bad Beat Jackpot and it's getting bigger by the second," stated UltimateBet spokesperson George MacLean. "It's only a matter of time before we shower even more online poker players with extreme riches."
And with the recent two bad beat jackpots hit in four hours I am sure traffic will continue to increase. Players see how others are winning and want to try and win themselves. The Texas Hold'em Bad Beat Jackpot is like normal Texas Hold'em with an added jackpot component. So much per hand is collected and added toward the jackpot so it is continually growing. When a player loses a hand with Four 8s or better the jackpot is hit and a percentage is given to the player and then divided among the other players. Another percentage remains to build the jackpot.
On UltimateBet the jackpot tables are highlighted in red text in the game lobby. Many players believe this site is the more profitable of the jackpot sites. Most say this because of the distribution of the jackpot to the players.
