Six Poker Players at Detroit Casino Share Largest Bad Beat Jackpot in U.S. History

Six Poker Players at Detroit Casino Share Largest Bad Beat Jackpot in U.S. History

An old saying holds that success is written in the stars, so when Kenny Tallent watched the skies above Michigan set ablaze with an unfamiliar flash, he hoped the rare sight offered good fortune to come.

It was January 16 and the Battle Creek native found himself driving to nearby MotorCity Casino in Detroit to play poker. Suddenly, the night sky lit up with starlight as a meteor fell to Earth and burned up in spectacular fashion.

As he later told his hometown Battle Creek Enquirer, Tallent had a feeling that the meteor sighting was a good omen ahead of a night competing at the Texas Hold’em tables:

“I remember thinking, what are the odds of that. Maybe it would be good luck.”

A little while later – when Tallent’s pocket Queens connected for top full house on the Q-3-3 flop and improved to four of a kind on the turn – his premonition seemed to be prescient. His hand was unbeatable, so Tallent was guaranteed to win each and every chip his opponent happened to put in the pot.

But when the other player in the hand turned over his own four of a kind with 3-3 in the hole, Tallent took down his share of the largest poker jackpot in U.S. history.

The collision between two “quad” hands triggered the MotorCity Casino poker room’s bad beat jackpot, which requires four of a kind to be beaten by another four of a kind. As a result, Tallent pocketed $ 213,712 – or 20 percent of the massive bad beat jackpot that had been built up to $ 1,068,590.

The loser of the hand, who has been identified only as “Scott,” claimed 40 percent of the jackpot for a $ 427,452 score. And to cap the historic hand off, the other four players seated at the table were each awarded a 10 percent “table share” for $ 106,856.

MotorCity Casino’s senior vice president of operations Phil Trofibio issued a statement celebrating the largest bad beat jackpot ever paid by an American poker room:

“There are winners every day on the floor, but it’s not every day that a jackpot that big hits. Congratulations to all the players at the table.”

Most poker rooms offer a bad beat jackpot promotion, which removes a dollar or two from every pot of a certain size and adds the funds to a running jackpot kitty. These jackpots can be claimed by meeting certain hand requirements that qualify as a “bad beat,” meaning one extremely strong hand happens to lose against an even better holding.

In most cases, the requirement is Aces full of Kings beaten by four of a kind or better, or perhaps quads beaten by anything better. But with the strict “quads over quads” requirement used at MotorCity Casino, the jackpot became much harder to hit, allowing it to swell to over $ 1 million.

An aspiring poker pro, Tallent recognized the long odds against two players winding up with four of a kind during the same hand:

“That kind of bad beat, with the kind of jackpot they have at Motor City, is kind of rare.

I guess I hope it’s not a once-in-a-lifetime thing because I’d love to have it happen to me again, but it is rare.”

Asked about the moment that a bad beat could be brewing, Tallent clearly relished reliving the experience:

“It never even crossed my mind that he could have four of a kind.

But then I went all-in and when he called my all-in so quickly, I figured out he might also have four-of-a-kind. We then looked at each other and I said, ‘you got it?’ and he said, ‘you got it?’ and we both said yes.

We realized what had happened and we all just started jumping up and down. Everybody in the poker room figured out what had happened and gathered around, there was this buzz everywhere.

I guess the stars just aligned perfectly that night.”

Lottoland Online Lottery Exchange Launches World’s First Bitcoin Lotto Jackpot

Lottoland Online Lottery Exchange Launches World’s First Bitcoin Lotto Jackpot

Lottoland has taken the gambling world by storm over the last year, and the Gibraltar-based company has its sights set on the Bitcoin boom for 2018 and beyond.

In a press release issued on December 18, Lottoland announced the launch of what it calls the “world’s first officially licensed Bitcoin lotto jackpot.”

Beginning that same day, the Lottoland website began accepting wagers on its new Bitcoin Lotto, which was seeded with a jackpot of 1,000 BTC.

Lottoland’s founder and chief executive officer Nigel Birrell issued a statement celebrating the impending Bitcoin integration:

“We’re pleased to be able to announce the launch of this world exclusive Bitcoin jackpot.

Today, 1,000 Bitcoins are worth over $ 20 million and might be worth even more by tomorrow.

Bitcoin is a worldwide phenomenon, and Lottoland is giving our customers the opportunity to get involved.”

Birrell mentioned a jackpot equivalent to over $ 20 million, but the cryptocurrency craze has seen Bitcoin’s value fluctuate wildly in recent weeks. At the current exchange rate, Lottoland’s jackpot would be worth USD$ 15,849,995 as of December 20.

The business model pioneered by Lottoland is based on allowing bettors access to international lottery draws. Because most state-supervised lottery programs prohibit foreign players from entering, Lottoland doesn’t sell actual lotto tickets. Instead, the site allows players to place wagers on the results of lotto draws like the U.S. Powerball, the EuroMillions, and Germany’s Lotto 6 aus 49.

When a winner matches their numbers to the numbers pulled in the actual draw, Lottoland pays out the corresponding jackpot on its own, using a €100 million (AUD $ 118 million) policy underwritten by Insurance-Linked Security.

Thus far, Lottoland has paid out more than $ 1.25 billion to winning players while serving 13 international markets, including Canada, Australia, and the U.K.

Lottoland’s newly launched Bitcoin Lotto relies on the Spanish lottery Sorteos de BonoLoto to produce its winning numbers. Sorteos de BonoLoto – operated by the Spanish government since 1988 – utilizes the standard “6 from 49” lotto system, in which players select six numbers from a set of 1-49 in hopes of matching all six to trigger the jackpot.

The Sorteos de Bonoloto holds drawings every day of the week except Sundays, so Lottoland players will have six opportunities per week to participate in the Bitcoin Lotto.

The Lottoland website’s Bitcoin page describes the setup as follows:

“When you bet on Bitcoin Lotto at Lottoland, you are betting on the outcome of the six main numbers drawn from the Bonoloto (the “Complementario” and “Reintegro” numbers do not affect the Bitcoin Lotto).

This incredible Bitcoin jackpot is the first of its kind and you won’t find anything like it anywhere else.

Furthermore, Lottoland will be increasing the Bitcoin jackpot from time to time, so you can continually play for bigger and bolder Bitcoin bonanzas.”

The cost of a single entry in the Bitcoin lotto is set at £3, and the odds of matching all six numbers on a single ticket stand at 1 in 13,983,816.

That’s certainly a longshot, but as Lottoland makes clear in its FAQ section, players face odds up to 10 times worse when playing EuroMillions. And indeed, the odds of winning the Powerball jackpot stand at 1 in 292,201,338 – or more than 20 times worse than the Bitcoin lotto.

Players aren’t obligated to match all six numbers either, as Lottoland uses a tiered payout system to dispense supplementary prizes. Tier 1 is the primary 1,000 BTC jackpot for landing a six-number sweep, but matching five numbers correctly (1 in 55,492 odds) is good enough for the Tier 2 prize of 1 BTC.

From there, players matching two, three, or four numbers will receive standard prizes of £1, £5, and £50, respectively.

Man Wins $500,000 on Three Card Poker Jackpot at Rivers Casino Schenectady

Man Wins $500,000 on Three Card Poker Jackpot at Rivers Casino Schenectady

Last week a lucky player struck gold at Rivers Casino & Resort in Schenectady, New York, when a $ 20 wager on the Three Card Poker table turned into a $ 497,152 jackpot.

The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, began the hand by placing a $ 5 minimum Ante bet, along with $ 10 on the Pair Plus side bet. But it was the extra $ 10 he plunked down on the Six Card Bonus side bet that worked wonders.

After the player was dealt Ace of spades, King of spades, and 10 of spades for his three-card hand, he continued by placing $ 5 more on the Play bet. At this point, his spade flush guaranteed a base game payout of $ 10, as he received even money on both the Ante and Play bets for beating the dealer’s hand.

The player also earned a $ 30 payout at 3 to 1 for making a flush, courtesy of the Pair Plus side bet.

And when the dealer revealed the Queen of spades and Jack of spades as part of their own three-card hand, the player landed a five-card royal flush to trigger the massive six-figure progressive jackpot.

Under the terms of the Six Card Bonus bet – a product of Scientific Games, parent company of Shuffle Entertainment and Bally Gaming – players combine their own three-card holding with the dealer’s hand to form the best possible five-card hand.

The odds of landing a five-card royal flush – which is formed by the 10-J-Q-K-A “Broadway” straight with all cards in the same suit – stand at 1 in 30,940, or 0.0009 percent.

For landing a longshot of that magnitude, the player earned the lion’s share of the Table Game Multi-Link Progressive jackpot offered by Rivers Casino & Resort.

The Multi Link Progressive side bet links all Mississippi Stud Poker, Let It Ride and Three Card Poker tables at the venue, with a small fraction of every wager placed contributing to three jackpot tiers: Mega, Major, and Minor.

Triggering the Mega jackpot requires a five-card royal flush, while the Major jackpot is won via straight flush, and the Minor jackpot by making four of a kind.

Mary Cheeks, who serves as general manager of Rivers Casino, issued a statement celebrating the player’s life-changing score:

“Having many ways to play means many ways to win, and at Rivers Casino we love a winner.

We have paid out nearly $ 20 million in jackpots alone since opening, and we look forward to celebrating even more winners.”

The big winner was joined by four other players at the table, each of whom won a $ 5,000 “Envy Bonus” by virtue of placing the same Six Card Bonus bet before the royal flush was made.

Since opening in February of this year, Rivers Casino Schenectady has paid out over $ 20 million in “jackpots,” which the venue describes as any payout of $ 1,200 or more. The casino bills itself as the only table game gambling destination in New York’s capital region, with 67 table game placements in total.
