The online poker site paid out $1,032.645.26 since August 2011, when the site it originally took over (DoylesRoom) upgraded its software.
Over $516,000 was paid to players who had the losing hand. Players with winning hands collected over $344,000, and those who participated in the Bad Beat Jackpot showdown hands netted over $172,000.
While dozens of players have shared in the $1 million, a few lucky online poker players have profited from playing Bad Beat Jackpot more than once.
