A “bad beat” is a poker term used for an occurrence when a strong poker hand loses to an even stronger poker hand. When the qualifying bad beat hand takes place, all the active players in the hand will be eligible to take home a players share of the jackpot. The “winner” with the qualifying bad beat hand will be awarded the bulk of the bad beat amount.
To qualify for the bad beat jackpot at Dakota Dunes Casino, a player must be using both hole cards with one being an Ace to make a full house of Aces over Jacks or better, that is beat by another player at the same table holding a pocket pair which results in a hand of 4 of a kind or better. There must be a minimum of four players at the table when this occurs.
