When a poker bad beat jackpot is hit, it's immediately reset and starts over again waiting for the next lucky table to claim the prize.
When a bad beat gets to a certain point, the resetting process doesn't hurt that much. For most casinos, 10 percent of the drop is taken out for for reseeding purposes. When the Trump Taj Mahal bad beat opened today - two days after it hit for a record amount - it's still at a respectable amount. The Taj bad beat is at $167,818.
That's not the highest of the casinos. Borgata is at $277,358 and most of the others are in the 100K territory as well.
I wonder what the bad beat chasers are going to do now.
