The Microgaming Poker Network (MPN) has taken innovative steps to solve the Bad Beat Jackpot that has swept the poker community in recent years.
Segregated tables, strict hand requirements and the extra rake money have all meant BBJs have fallen out of favour with poker players, but Microgaming’s new system could change that.Using patent pending technology, Microgaming will now allow players to opt in or out of their BBJ before the start of each hand.To opt in costs 2 cents per hand, regardless of the stakes you’re playing, and will be open to players at all tables.This means that BBJs will hit more often and distribute money to a greater number of players across the network. Commenting on the new system, Unibet’s Head of Poker, Steve Cutler, said: “We expect the ability to offer a Bad Beat payday on all our tables to significantly enhance our offering”.The current MPN Bad Beat Jackpot currently stands at a whopping €810,000.Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
