$20K Bad Beat Jackpot Rules Texas Hold'Em

1. In order for a hand to be eligible to qualify for a Bad Beat, the pot must meet a minimum of $20.

2. A minimum of four players must be seated and dealt in at the beginning of the hand in order to qualify for the Bad Beat. A Bad Beat shall apply to only the first natural five community cards dealt.

3. To qualify for the Bad Beat Promo, a player must have a minimum full house of aces full of kings (AAAKK) or better beaten. If the winning or losing player has made a four-of-a-kind, that player must have a pocket pair to qualify (example: if a player has four eights, he/she must have a pocket pair of eights with two eights on the board). Both the winning and losing hands must use both of their hole cards to create the highest possible hand.

4. In order for a hand to be eligible for the Bad Beat Promotion the hand must go to a showdown (played to the end, where all cards have been dealt and players have completed betting and show their cards to determine the winner) in order for the Promo to be awarded.

5. If a hand finishes with three qualifying hands, the lowest hand will only receive a player’s share of the Promo (e.g., four eights, four queens and a queen high straight flush are dealt in the same hand. The Bad Beat hand will be the four queens and the winning hand will be the queen high straight flush.)

6. If a hand qualifies for the Bad Beat Promotion during another promotion, only the Bad Beat Promotion will be paid.

7. Players must play their hands independently. Any discussion of the prize during the playing of the hand may void qualification for the Bad Beat Promo. If any player, whether directly or indirectly involved in the hand, passes information or instructs another on how to act or reveals his/her hand to other players, the Bad Beat Promo will be disqualified.

8. Management reserves the right to verify eligibility of all qualifying hands. There will be no recourse if the cards are mucked before surveillance was able to verify the hands and the community cards. Poker management will not be permitted to reconstruct the hands in any way.

9. In order to collect any Hollywood Columbus Bad Beat Promo payout, proper identi cation will be required. Payouts of the Bad Beat Promo are as follows:
• $10,000 will be awarded to the Bad Beat hand (losing hand).
• $5,000 will be awarded to the winner of the hand.
• $5,000 will be awarded equally among the balance of the seated players on the game who received cards at the beginning of the hand.

10. A player who removes his/her chips from the game prior to a showdown on a hand where a Bad Beat is won, forfeits his/her right to any prize money.

11. A player who walks away from the game, but leaves his/her chips on the table AND he/she was in the hand at the beginning, will retain rights to his/her share of the Bad Beat Promo if a Bad Beat hand occurs.

12. Winners will be solely responsible for all taxes.

13. All Bad Beat Promo payouts shall be made from the Promotional Fund. In the event the Promotional Fund does not have necessary funds for any payout, the remainder will be covered by Hollywood Casino Columbus.

14. Any dispute or situation not covered by the official rules will be resolved by the Hollywood Casino Columbus poker management in a manner deemed by them to be the fairest to all concerned.
