Borgata Bad Beat Frenzy Hits Twice in Five Minutes

Bad Beat FrenzyWhen Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa promises grinders a Bad Beat Jackpot Frenzy, we aren’t kidding around.

Take the action on Wednesday, July 2, when Borgata’s Small Bad Beat Jackpot hit twice—in five minutes. That’s right, better than $95,000 paid out in just five minutes.

The first hit came in the Borgata Poker Room at 3:30pm in a hand that really proves how Borgata’s Bad Beat Frenzy—which lowers the minimum hand to win the small jackpot—has changed the landscape.

Player Steven Belly was holding pocket 10’s while Jasper Chan was sitting on pocket jacks. Then came a flop of three aces, giving each a full boat.

Belly’s lesser boat wins the Small Bad Beat Jackpot and $20K and Chan Took home 10K. Eight other players at the table get $2,500 each.
