888POKER INVESTS A MILLION IN CHRISTMAS BLAST TOURNAMENT
Special edition of sit and go tourney planned for this week.
888Poker is investing a million dollars in prize pool guarantees in a special edition of its popular fast-moving BLAST Sit and Go competitions starting on December 26, offering players an opportunity to win considerably more than the 10,000 x their stakes usually on offer.
BLAST is played on four-handed tables and the prize pool is randomly determined before play begins, but so is the length of the tournament. Depending on the prize pool’s size, a BLAST tournament can last three, four, five or six two-minute levels. Once the timer reaches zero, everyone is set all in until a winner is determined.
Several 888 players have already benefitted from the format, which was introduced in July this year, but this festive season edition is likely to set new records with a buy-in of $5 and the opportunity to hit a 200,000 x jackpot, making it possible for a jackpot winner to exit with $600,000, the runner up with $200,000 and the two other table players $100,000 apiece.
