€1 Million BLAST Jackpot Hit at 888poker

888poker BLAST Jackpot

Imagine the scenes. You fire up 888poker and enter a €1 BLAST Sit & Go game. The randomly selected prize pool spins and spins and spins before settling on a staggering €1 million! That is exactly what happened to three lucky Italian 888poker players this week.

As per the rules of the BLAST tournaments, 888poker's version of Spin and Go, all three players shared the monster-sized prize pool instead of the tournament being a winner-takes-all as it would have been with a smaller prize pool multiplier.

Falling in third would still net them a cool €100,000, a prize €1 players can only dream of.

€700,000 for the Winner

"Adria74" was the first player out of the door. While disappointed not to emerge victoriously, having an extra €100,000 in their 888poker account will go some way to numbing the pain of defeat.

That exit left "iaria200651" and "ele76m" heads-up with everything to play for. First place tipped the scales at €700,000 with second-place coming in at €200,000. Imagine buying into a €1 tournament and finding yourself in what was no essentially a €500,000 heads-up sit & go! Wow!

The one-on-one battle went the way of iaria200651 and they scooped the €700,000 top prize!

"When I realised that the 1 million jackpot had been hit, I started screaming, so much so that my son got scared. I couldn’t believe it!" iaria200651 told the 888poker eMagazine.

"We are a family of workers, and we will continue to work. But, at least, now we can realize our dreams. We have four children: the eldest is 35, the youngest 15, so it’s important for us to give them everything they need, to send the youngest to a good university, and to help the eldest with a house loan. And we can have a bigger house now, too."
