BACK-TO-BACK: Having a bad-beat jackpot hit is supposed to be a rare occurrence, but at Dover Downs Hotel and Casino, the jackpot hit on consecutive days. On Feb. 10, the jackpot netted $129,572 and was divided incrementally among six players at the table. This is one of four of the largest bad beats to hit in Delaware, all at Dover Downs.

On Feb. 11, the jackpot hit again, this time for $77,404. John Williams of Solomons, Md., received a check for $38,702, representing 50 percent of the jackpot for his aces full of queens. A Chester, Va., man received a consolation payout of $19,351 for his quad jacks. The rest was split among the other players at the table.
