Finnish Player Hits Record-breaking IPN Bad Beat Jackpot of $1,831,426

A player from Finland hit the Bad Beat Jackpot of $1,831,426 (€1,265,583) at Poker Heaven, one of the poker rooms on GTECH G2's International Poker Network. His share of the record-breaking jackpot was $640,696 (€442,954).

This sets a new IPN Bad Beat Jackpot world record, breaking the previous world record of approximately $1.2 million. The new Jackpot has already started at over $360,000 – remaining the largest Bad Beat Jackpot in online poker.

The player known as OmgoMgomGo, the loser of the hand (with Quad Kings) but the winner of the record breaking Bad Beat Jackpot, received $640,696 (€442,954). Hand winner with Quad Aces, 7Adelaida7, won $320,391 (€221,477). The other 7 players in the hand all received $45,766 each (€31,639) for participating in the hand.

OmgoMgomGo, who joined Poker Heaven earlier this year after seeing the great array of promotions available, was unsurprisingly delighted: “WOOOOOOOOW!! I had KK and all the money went in pre-flop. Once I hit my quads and saw the second Ace come on the river I was hoping that my opponent had hit their 1 outer! When I realised it had happened I was so happy, I still cannot believe it! The atmosphere at the table when it hit was great and I would like to thank all of the players and the Poker Heaven staff for their best wishes. As for what I am going to do with the cash, I am planning to buy a house, a car and will certainly be partying hard.”

William Scott, VP GTECH G2 said: “These are exciting times at IPN. We’ve raised the bar with a massive new world record and with our €2 Million investment into the IPN, we are committed to delivering even bigger promotions and tournaments to our players.”
