Merge Network getting rid of Bad Beat Jackpot
Carbon Poker, Merge Network Removes Bad Beat Jackpots: Move is to Improve ‘Healthier Room Ecology’
, and the entire Merge Gaming Network for that matter, has announced they will no longer be offering Bad Beat Jackpots effective once the final BBJ goes off.
We have made the decision, after some long analytical review of the BBJ Tables, to remove them completely.
Once the Jackpot goes off for the last time, the tables will shut down automatically within a few minutes. We will manually reimburse any BBJ rake paid between the time that the jackpot goes off and when the tables can be shutdown.
The 20% that would normally re-seed the next Jackpot will be spread amongst the players instead, making this ultimate Bad Beat Jackpot even more lucrative for the players involved now. *It is currently over $313,000.
This change is to ensure a healthier poker room ecology, while providing players with a better ring game selection and increased players at the stakes the BBJ tables use to be.
