About the Superstorm
The Superstorm is something never seen before at 888poker with a plethora of tournaments every day. The schedule boasts a fixed schedule every day outside of two rotating events at 6 p.m. GMT that are the biggest events of the day.
The fixed portion of the schedule is something you can be part of without even playing satellites with buy-ins ranging from $5.50 to $109 and guarantees as high as $109. Of course, you can qualify in for even cheaper into any event of your choice.
Here is a look at the fixed portion of the schedule.

Play in the $1 Million Gtd. Main Event for FREE
The highlight of the festival is the two-day $1 million guaranteed $320 Superstorm Main Event.
Opening flights have already begun, so there is no point in waiting to get started on qualifying for Day 2 on Oct. 11 at 8 p.m. GMT.
The tournament boasts a great structure with players begin each opening flight with 10,000 in chips and blinds increasing slowly at every 20 minutes.
The opening flights won't be marathons despite the great structure with each flight ending the sooner of 12 blind levels completed or 14 percent of the field remaining.
For many of you, $320 might prove to be too much. After all, it is a good chunk of change.
Rest assured there are plenty of $30 satellites that can qualify you straight into the Main Event and you can feed into these satellites starting at just $0.01.
But, you don't even need to spend a penny as you can potentially play absolutely for free and here's how.
Just log into 888poker every day where if you have made at least one real-money deposit you will get a chance to spin the Daily Spinner. It's absolutely free to spin and you can win a freeroll satellite ticket that awards seats to the Main Event along with many other great prizes.
Even if you don't manage to win a freeroll ticket in a spin you can still grab one by completing one of the following easy-to-complete daily challenges.
- Wager at least $5 in sports events with minimum odds of 1.5 or higher.
- Bet at least $5 in casino play.
- Entering at least $3 worth of tournaments including BLAST (re-entries don't count towards requirements).
- Win a cash game hand that reaches at least a flop with queen-jack at $0.02/$0.05 NLHE.
With so many opportunities to play for free or if you prefer for a penny, what do you have to lose to try?
