Seems this was won today. It was well over $130K, which would have been over $45k for the losing hand...

Anyone have details??

Thanks...;)


A little misleading though. If you do the math it's actually 25% of 70% of the jackpot, which would be 17.5%.


17.5% of $135K = $23,625

25% of $135K = $33,750

Quite a difference :D

edit: Whoa.....................did prima just change the rules?!??!?

Just looked, and it seems the winner of the hand no longer recieves a penny besides the 30% split between the rest of the table that participated in the hand.

edit2: Nevermind. I copied these from dream poker's website, and they're either wrong or prima hasn't updated their website accordingly. I've emailed dream, so hopefully they can tell me which one is correct.

# The percentage payout of the Jackpot is as follows:
# 70% is distributed as winnings:
70% to the losing hand, the Bad Beat
30% evenly split between the Players who actively participated in the hand
20% is used to seed the next Jackpot
10% is used for administration

If the above are correct, then that leaves alot of guessing what constitutes "actively participated in the hand".

Does it mean you saw hole cards?
Does it mean you saw the flop?

Alot of "grey" area there....

The way that JP is split is [email protected] I thought it was 50% to the loser 25% winner and 25% shared between all other players that were dealt cards.

And as for all this seeding [email protected], why dont they just have a main JP and a reserve JP.

Yea, I love how they can grab 10% for "admin" purposes, seeing as how all the rake collected to go to the JP is all automatic in the first place. I'm not positive, but I'm also assuming the payouts to players is also automatic.

What's the $13,500+ in this instance going to?

I was notified by Dream that the payout structure listed on their website is in error. The one listed at Prima is correct.


* 70% is distributed as winnings:
o 50% to the losing hand, the Bad Beat
o 25% to the winner of the hand
o 25% evenly split between the other Players who actively participated in the hand
* 20% is used to seed the next Jackpot
* 10% is used for administration
