    Did a Betonline low stakes poker player get screwed out of a $52k bad beat jackpot because he got disconnected?



    This player created a 2+2 thread about the matter yesterday: https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/2...hread-1770490/

    However, it was pointed out that Betonline hasn't yet denied him the jackpot -- only that he thinks that's likely to occur.

    I actually think they probably will deny it, citing some lame terms of service where the player has to be not folded, and that the disconnection folded him.

    Really brutal if he doesn't get it. Might be the worst online disconnect in poker history.

    If you look at the top of the screen, you'll see that the bad beat jackpot was $349k or so.

    Here are the BBJ rules: https://promotions.betonline.ag/bad-beat-jackpot

    20% player with Bad Beat
    15% winner of the hand
    12.5% players at the table
    12.5% players at other BBJ tables
    35% reseed
    5% fee

    In this case, he would have gotten 15% (about $52,500), the guy with quads would have gotten 20% (almost $70k), the other 4 players at the table would have shared 12.5% (meaning 3.125% each -- a little over $10.5k), about $43k would have been shared among the other BBJ tables, and the remainder of the jackpot would have been reseeded and taken as fees.

    So he wasn't even the one most screwed here!

    They've locked the 2+2 thread at his request, which I think is stupid, because the thread being open puts more pressure on Betonline to do the right thing!

    Developing....

    Betonline is in my mind this worst there is. When I was in Costa Rica they had already moved to Panama but it was well known that they were successful because they simply owned the domain Betonline. They are known to payout crumbs and have ridiculous policies such as a thirty day waiting period for cash-outs if you deposit by any method that can possibly be charged back. Unless he was having a lot of problems with his connection prior I can smell the bullshit from here from these assholes. I honestly don’t know why anyone does business with them and hopefully if they don’t do he right thing here and do what they hate the most (to payout) great domain name or not no one should give this company business.

    I was in contact with the guy and he said that Betonline was refusing, and telling him that he was disconnected. Looked pretty bad.
