888Poker’s version of jackpot SNGs Blast is already creating a lot of action on the tables. Now, there will be even more excitement as the room introduced a turbo version of the popular format. You can play the new 888Poker Blast SNGs for various buy-ins starting at $1 and going all the way to $100.
More About Blast Poker
The biggest appeal of the Blast Poker tournaments is the opportunity to win big. The prize pool of each SNG is determined randomly before it starts. It could be twice the buy-in, but it could also reach 10,000 times your entry! This attracts many recreational players and is very convenient for short sessions.
Each 888Poker Blast tourney starts with just 4 people on the table. There is a timer displayed and once it hits zero, all players are automatically all-in each until there is a winner. The system is pretty entertaining with people pushing all kinds of hands once the timer is close to zero.
The standard Blaze Poker SNGs started with 5 minutes on the clock. The new 888Poker format will see that decreased to only 2 minutes. This should lead to even more action and crazy hands. It’s another move that will please the recreational players and such a long-term strategy in the past decade or so is the main reason 888Poker is one of the biggest rooms on the market.

888Poker also decided to add Blast satellites to the WSOP 2017 Main Event. The entry to those is $10 and there are three possible prizes, the biggest of them being a $12,500 WSOP package. Here’s how the frequency is distributed:
