Decommissioning the Bad Beat & Fish Party Jackpots
As 32Red Poker prepares to migrate from the Microgaming Poker Network (MPN), a number of our players will be in for a windfall when jackpot contributions are returned. Below you can find details of how this works, including how to guarantee receiving funds, as well as information about special Freerolls.
There are two types of jackpots being decommissioned: The Bad Beat Jackpot and each of the five Fish Party Jackpots. All funds collected from players which remain ‘active’ in these jackpots will be returned.
Bad Beat Jackpot
The Bad Beat Jackpot will be stopped on the 4th May 2020. Logging in to 32Red Poker at any time during 2020 is enough to receive any contributions made to the Bad Beat Jackpot that have not already been awarded through a jackpot win. Note that ALL such unused contributions will be returned – not just those from 2020!
Some funds in the Bad Beat Jackpot consist of, for example, contributions from either inactive players or those whose accounts are locked/inaccessible. These will be used to make up the prize pool of a special Freeroll that will take place on Monday 18th May 2020 at 20:00 CET, and which will be open to all players who contributed to the BBJ in 2020.
Fish Party Jackpots
Each of the five Fish Party jackpots - €1, €5, €10, €20 and €50 – has a progressive jackpot. These will be stopped on the morning of the 18th May 2020. Again, simply logging in to 32Red Poker just once during 2020 is enough to have the relevant contributions returned.
As with the BBJ Freeroll, any excess funds will be used in Fish Party Freerolls, which will take place on Monday 18th May 2020 at 20:30 CET. There will be a Freeroll for each of the five buy-in levels, with each open to players who have contributed to the corresponding progressive jackpot in 2020.
Big prizes – don’t miss out!
The special jackpot Freerolls look set to have very juicy prize pools. As of 12th March, these were as follows:
