)-- The Crown Royal Poker Room at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino had a hit on the Bad Beat Jackpot Sunday on a Texas Hold ‘Em table. The jackpot netted $34,494, and was divided incrementally among the eight players at the table.
The losing hand holder received a check for $19,247, representing fifty percent of the Bad Beat Jackpot, for his losing hand of quad nines. The winning hand received a payout of $9,623.50 for quad jacks. The top-prize payout to the player of the second-highest, “losing” hand is what the Bad Beat Jackpot represents: a consolation prize for being beaten when holding an otherwise high hand.
