This still sounds to me like a logistically poor promotion. They're going to have to verify a whole bunch of bad beat hands, slowing games and taking up floor supervisors' time, all in order to make just four payouts at the end of the month.

A "whole bunch of hands"? You see Aces full of Eights lose that often (when both hole cards play)?

I don't know, but in an 80+ table room, there might be, what, 10 qualifying hands in a 24 hour period? I think even that's on the high side. That's not a whole bunch.

Although, that's just my guess and could be way off...any dealers or floor, feel free to chime in with your guesses....

i think 10 a night is a high estimate

I think 3 a night is a high estimate, especially in Dec.

Here is what i don't understand, if you go to this link:
linky

It says 2 things:
Payouts of the Bad Beat are as follows:
50% of the Bad Beat prize package will be awarded to the Bad Beat hand (losing hand)
25% of the Bad Beat prize package will be awarded to the winner of the hand
25% of the Bad Beat prize package will be awarded equally amongst the balance of the seated players on the game who received cards at the beginning of the hand.

then a few bullets down it says:

Qualifying Bad Beats will be recorded during the month (December 1 31, 2007). Winners of the Bad Beat prize packages will be announced on January 1, 2008, and will be awarded the following Prize Packages (as set forth in Rule 8 above):
$50,000 Prize Package to highest (worst) Bad Beat
$25,000 Prize Package 2nd highest Bad Beat
$15,000 Prize Package 3rd highest Bad Beat
$10,000 Prize Package random winner from remaining Qualifying Bad Beats
Winners will be solely responsible for all taxes.

So does that mean for each "recorded hand" The loser will get 50% of 50k, the winner get 25% of 50k and the table the rest. meaning for each beat they will write down 10 players information for example?

Then the second worst beat would be 50% of 25k etc....

I bet they just grab player cards and mark those...so no borgata card, no jackpot.

Exactly, along with what Selling said.

I'll wager it'll be computerized...you hit the hand, they'll swipe cards or write them down, and life will go on. If you don't have one, odds are they'll get you one on the spot. Doing it this way will minimize administration, and it should be pretty easy to do.
