In related news, the Bad Beat Jackpot on Reefer Poker is continues to reach new highs, with the jackpot now surpassing $860,000. In an industry first, Reefer Poker affiliates are set to earn a piece of this huge Bad Beat Jackpot!

“The Bad Beat Jackpot is smoking hot”, exclaimed Reefer Pokers’ Poker Room Manager Dave Ishere. “At Reefer Poker we want to award the affiliate(s) that send the jackpot winners to us with a slice of this action!”

It's simple! If a Reefer Poker player is tagged to an affiliate account and wins a portion of the Bad Beat Jackpot, then that affiliate will earn a percentage of that amount! With the "loser" of the hand set to earn over $300,000, this would mean a one percent, $3,000 bonus to them direct from Reefer Poker. This does not come out of the player's winnings.

With an average of 8 players on their Bad Beat tables, there are 8 chances for an affiliate to have one of their players win a portion of this jackpot, and that means 8 chances for them to win as well.

“This is a great tool to help affiliates promote and convert their members,” said Gian Perroni, President of CanAffco. “It’s a novel promotion, and one that is long overdue. It makes sense to me to ensure that affiliates can be recognized for their contribution in this way.”
