Bad Beat Jackpot Over €330K at GTECH G2 IPN Poker Network

Europe’s largest independent poker network takes the sting out of losing with a good hand

The Bad Beat Jackpot on GTECH G2’s International Poker Network (IPN) has just gone over €330,000. The player that actually wins the hand will get more than €50,000 and another €50,000 will be split between the other players at the table.

“We boosted the jackpot last week so that the next winner would get at least €100,000,” said Per Karlsson, Head of Poker GTECH G2. “The last time our Bad Beat jackpot was hit was shortly after it topped €400K so I have a feeling it won’t be long before we’re making another player feel better about losing with a winning hand!”

The IPN Bad Beat Jackpot was last hit in August for €412,000. That winner wasn’t even aware he’d won it until someone else at the table pointed it out to him. He thought he’d just lost the pot despite having a great hand, which is frustrating for any poker player.

To qualify for the Bad Beat at IPN poker rooms, players must be at a designated Bad Beat table and use both pocket cards in their winning or losing hand. The losing hand must be four-of-a-kind sixes or better. Four or more players must be dealt into the hand.

GTECH G2 is the igaming division of lottery industry giant, GTECH. It combines the software development and customer management expertise of Boss Media, Finsoft, Dynamite Idea and St Minver and operates the International Poker Network and International Bingo Network.

Details of the IPN Bad Beat Jackpot are available at participating online poker rooms. There is a list of International Poker Network poker sites at
