I don’t know much about these things but the difference between how things are processed online and on real casinos and real tables leave me very surprised. So, this means that, in a real casino, when playing poker, in a tourney, if it happens to be a bad beat jackpot in a table, everyone from the tourney will get rewarded for it and not only those who were directly involved in the hand in question? This is great! It could be that way online, why not?

That's all pretty amzing, but last night oneperson living in Michigan collected 320 million dollars off of the Powerball Lottery so what Atlantyic City gave away is considered peanuts to that. Not saying I wouldn't be happy to get a piece of any of it, but to think one person collected enough money to buy a casino is pretty amazing.

not sure why more than 400 players shared the first jackpot (with both involved in the hand getting the lions share) and only those who were at the table shared the second jackpot (again players directly involved in the hand getting most)- what gives? maybe there were no more dudes in the casino on th second occasion

yeah Pochui good point.
I dont understand that either..?
Maybe someone can explain why the first jackpot paid about 400K to 900 players in 4 Ceasers casino's and the rest of the 787K to the winner and loser of the hand.And then in the same casino's the same jackpot falls but then they only pay the table where the hand was played on ???
