Last Carbon Poker Bad Beat JackpotAfter years of offering a Bad Beat Jackpot, Carbon Poker have decided to remove it from their tables and instead focus on regular ring games.

Carbon Poker’s Bad Beat Jackpot offered some of the highest of its kind in the industry with the largest jackpot exceeding $1 million, but after review they have determined that its best to drop the bad-beat jackpot after the next time it hits.

The current CarbonPoker Bad Beat Jackpot stands at $346,370.00, to win the BBJ a player must be beaten holding at least four of a kind 7’s and a few other rules listed below.

For those who have been trying to take down this jackpot, this will be your last chance as CarbonRyan a Carbon Poker spokesperson wrote at TwoPlusTwo:

“We have made the decision, after some long analytical review of the BBJ Tables, to remove them completely.

Once the Jackpot goes off for the last time, the tables will shut down automatically within a few minutes. We will manually reimburse any BBJ rake paid between the time that the jackpot goes off and when the tables can be shutdown.

The 20% that would normally re-seed the next Jackpot will be spread amongst the players instead, making this ultimate Bad Beat Jackpot even more lucrative for the players involved now.

*It is currently over $313,000.

This change is to ensure a healthier poker room ecology, while providing players with a better ring game selection and increased players at the stakes the BBJ tables use to be.”

Carbon Poker Last Bad Beat Jackpot

It would appear that the main reasoning to remove the Bad Beat Jackpot from Carbon Poker would be to increase equity by spreading money among players rather than awarding one large prize with a large sum of money split among a handful of player who in turn are likely to be cash out and the money never being seen again.

Even though Carbon Poker do take their rake on the jackpot they probably make more money at a quicker rate with regular games especially as regular tables will become more populated once the bad beat jackpot table is removed.

The only real negative that Carbon could face is those who only play at the site specifically for the bad beat jackpot but one would imagine those players would be few and far between.

The overall view on the subject at Two + Two seems rather upbeat with most players pleased with the closure of the BBJ tables.

The 20% that would normally re-seed the next Jackpot will be spread amongst the players instead, making this ultimate Bad Beat Jackpot even more lucrative for the players involved now.
