On Saturday, May 21, MotorCity Casino Hotel awarded a record “Bad Beat” jackpot of almost $569,000 to ten players of their Texas Hold’em “Quads-over-Quads” poker game.

The jackpot was won in the early hours of May 21 when two players were dealt four-of-a-kind card hands during a game of Texas Hold’em. The resulting progressive jackpot of $569,000 was split between the ten players, with the loser of the “Bad Beat” hand taking home 40 percent of the jackpot while the winner of the hand was awarded 20 percent. The other eight players shared the remaining 40 percent equally and were awarded around $28,000 each.

The Bad Beat Jackpot is built with a $1 rake from every cash-game hand that has a pot of at least $20. In addition to the Quads over Quads jackpot, MotorCity Casino also provides three other variations of poker that offer separate progressive Bad Beat Jackpots.

At MotorCity, the previous record-prize was won five years ago and amounted to around $386,000.
