“AkaliEars” thought that he was the unluckiest online gambler in the world when, after holding 4 Jacks in a poker game, he found that his opponent was holding 4 Kings. He was very envious of his opponent who won an amount of 72,236 Euro until he learned that he himself was the winner of the “Bad Beat Jackpot” of 144,473 Euros. He was aware of the fact that he had won a consolation prize but did not realize that his prize would be even more than that of his opponent.
IPN Poker created the Bad Beat Jackpot in order to soften the blow of players who lose to their opponents despite having incredible poker hands. By creating alternative winning methods for players who do not necessarily win the hand, the IPN Poker Network has been able to offer its players a lot of added value – something that many other poker networks do not offer.
This added value has allowed IPN Poker to attract many more customers and recently the Network signed its three millionth customer. IPN Poker is responsible for some of the biggest names in online poker, including VirginPoker.com, PokerHeaven.com and Casino-Club.com .
