Wass Poker is entering poker history with their record breaking bad beat jackpot of $1,183,956.00. The bad beat jackpot has been growing since April of 2008 but since it went over its previous record of $821,670.69 in December, it has been growing by almost $10,000 a day!
The bad beat jackpot is triggered when one 'unlucky' player has quad 7's or better is beaten by a higher hand. To qualify further, both players must be using their hole cards, but when they do the payout could be enormous.
The winner of hand will walk away with 17.5% of the jackpot which is currently worth at least $207,192.30. The loser (if you can possibly call them that) will walk away with a staggering $414,384.60.
Any other players lucky enough to witness this history making hand and be involved with it will win at least $29,598.90 or up to $103,596.15!
And considering that the minimum to sit on a bad beat table is just $20 with blinds at $0.50/1, players are literally flocking to play for their chance to win their share of this huge jackpot.
The Bad beat jackpot isn't the only thing bringing players to Wass Poker -- their innovative software is packed full of features and extras.
In addition to the bad beat tables Wass Poker has also got Deal It Twice tables which include the ability for two players -- that are all in -- to have the turn and river cards dealt twice. If this sounds familiar to you, then there is a reason. It has been made very popular by all the pros on television series High Stakes Poker and is proving just as popular amongst online poker players.
Then there is Rabbit Hunt where if everyone folds the winner can choose to deal out the flop. It's great way for showing off that great poker bluff face to the other players or satisfying your curiosity. Other popular features include Show One Card, Quick Start, Vector graphics, and Multi-windows.
They also have a solid poker community backing them up in their sister site WassOnline. Launched at the end of 2005, it is one of the largest poker communities online with almost 40,000 members.
Members get access to great bonuses, exclusive offers as well as having both a poker forum and a social community area. The forum offers members the ability to both give and receive poker advice, brag about that big win, get sympathy for a horrible beat, and participate in poker leagues and special forum events -- including live poker tournaments.
The community area brings all of those features together in a Facebook-like format with members being able to add their own videos, photos, blogs and much, much more.
It's no wonder Wass Poker is proving to be very popular with both the casual poker player and the serious professional. Having achieved all this after only being launched less than a year ago, it's sure to only get bigger and better.
