At the beginning of the month, we told you about Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi's new poker venture named Blast Longer, an online and mobile app that aims to be poker's new one-stop shop for all last-longer bets.
Now, the app has a brand new feature that allows players to create custom blasts — something that everyone using Blast Longer should be excited about.
"Players at live events really enjoy placing last-longer side bets, and we realized that if we could bring it to online players, they might like it just as much," Mizrachi told PokerNews.
This new feature gives players the ability to create password-protected private blasts with any criteria they want. Players are able to add money to the prize pool and create custom payout structures that can allow for more than just the top person to win. With this private feature, one can invite others using address books from Yahoo!, Google, AOL, and more. It's just like setting up a tournament.
Furthermore, affiliates of Blast Longer will also have this option to create private blasts via the affiliate backend. If affiliates need more info regarding this procedure, they can contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The live blasts will be launching at the Russian Poker Tour this weekend, March 27 through April 3. All tournaments of the RPT schedule will be covered, and you can see the complete schedule below:
By opening a free account on Blast Longer, players can immediately challenge anyone on the site to last-longer bets in all the most popular online and live poker tournaments.
On Sunday, Blast Longer will be hosting a private blast with a $100 prize pool. This special event is to celebrate the launch of private blasts for all of the platforms Facebook followers. Mizrachi will be hosting the event, but it is password protected. In order to receive the password, stay tuned to the Blast Longer Facebook page.
