Bad beat jackpots redistribute money in an extremely inefficient way : taking money from the player pool and then handing it to a select few.
So money that could be going to me (as a winning player) and to Carbon (in more rake), instead goes to some random player who happens to hit a bad beat jackpot hand.
I totally understand your point on this one, but that is the concept of bad beat tables. We take a bit of the rake and put it in a pot that grows until a bad beat that meets our standards occur.
The reward is quite large considering we hold the record for the two largest bad beat jackpots records in the world! $725K+ and $1.38M+.
I have however taken your comment into consideration and passed it along, but to be honest, I doubt they are going to change this, but you never know. At the end of the day its a jackpot, just like any slot machine; a lot of players feed it, but only a few lucky player see the rewards. Thanks for the clarification.
