888poker Hosting the $1,000,000 God Of The Arena ME on Oct. 14
888poker will be introducing progressive jackpot tournaments into its poker client on Oct. 11.
Progressive jackpot tournaments are similar to knockout tournaments, albeit with a twist. Similar to normal knockout tournaments, the prize pool in these tournaments will be divided between a normal prize pool with the remainder allocated to bounties on all of the players.
The main difference between a knockout tournament and a progressive jackpot tournament is that every time a player eliminates an opponent, they will only receive a portion of the bounty into their real money account. The other portion will increase their own bounty making them more attractive to opponents to eliminate.
888poker is celebrating this type of tournament in a big way with the God of the Arena poker festival featuring 12 events from Oct. 11-14.
Events with guarantees are available at stakes big and small with buy-ins ranging from $5.50 to $320.

The $1,000,000 God Of The Arena Main Event starts Oct. 14 at 6 p.m. GMT. This tournament features a good structure along with a $1 million guaranteed prize pool for just a $55 buy-in.
Players will have plenty of chances to build a stack thanks to starting the action with 10,000 in chips. Players can rebuy if they lose all their chips during the 280-minute late registration period. To further enhance the structure, blind levels increase every 15 minutes.
While there will be plenty of chances for players to qualify for this event through real-money satellites, many players will also be partaking in the crown jewel of the God of the Arena festival for free through daily $1M God of the Arena ME Qualifier tournaments running until Oct. 13 that each award 100 tickets valued at $55.
Getting a ticket to the daily freerolls is relatively easy for active tournament players. A ticket is earned any time a player eliminates two opponents in any tournament or sit-and-go with at least a $1 buy-in.
Every day between now and Oct. 13, 888poker is hosting a $1M God of the Arena ME Qualifier freeroll where the top 100 players will be awarded a ticket to the Main Event of the series.
BLAST tournaments do not count towards this promotion. Players can earn up to one ticket per day until the last freeroll runs on Oct. 13.
