Rivers Casino's Million-Dollar Bad Beat Jackpot Becomes Poker Draw

Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh is offering a million-dollar bad beat jackpot. It's twice the amount it had previously awarded for a bad beating. The jack pot grows by a couple thousand dollars every day. The largest bad-beat jackpots were reported from Detroit's Motor City Casino and Playground Poker Club. If the Rivers prize doesn't reach $1.5 million within two to three weeks, it could be the largest in U.S. casino history.
