If you have dreams of turning $1 into $1 million dollars then you will want to head over to 888poker where, for a limited time, you can enter a $1 million Blast Poker game for just $1. You can also take a shot at a bigger cash prize in a $2 million Blast Poker game for $5.
What Is Blast Poker?
Blast Poker is a fast-paced sit & go tournament in which 4 players compete for a random cash prize. Once all four players are registered and seated at the table, a prize pool multiplier is randomly selected. Typically, the multiplier ranges from 2x up to 10,000x the buy-in. However, the prize pool multiplier also determines how long the game is going to last and how many players will receive a piece of the prize money.
The most common scenario would have a prize multiplier of 2x or 5x. In these cases, the game will last for 6 minutes before all remaining players are forced to go all-in every hand until only one player is left standing. Games with higher multipliers can last up to 12 minutes before players must go all-in on each hand.
More Chances To Win
Aside from having a chance to win a huge cash prize, Blast Poker allows players to know how long the game will last and the chip leaders have a reason to play quickly. But there is an even bigger reason to play Blast Poker. You could get knocked out in your first hand and still walk away with $100,000. Remember that the prize pool multiplier also determines how many players will share the prize. So, if a multiplier of 1,000x happens to pop up then all four players will get a piece of it.
A 2x multiplier means that the winner takes 100% of the prize. A 5x multiplier means that the winner takes 70% and second place gets 30%. A 10x or 100x multiplier will result in the winner getting 60%, second getting 25%, and third getting 15%. Finally, a 1,000x multiplier will have the winner getting 60%, second place receiving 25%, and the third and fourth places getting 10% each.
