888poker Supersizes BLAST Jackpot Sit & Go Prize Pool to $2,000,000!


2022 is a milestone year for 888poker, as the poker platform celebrates its 20th Anniversary. To mark the occasion, the site has rolled out six new promotions as part of 'The Anniversary Selection' which looks to give back to players through an array of prizes and rewards.

Giveaways, extra rakeback, freerolls, and gifts from the holiday megawheel are just some of the fab offers available. And another way 888poker is thanking its player base is by supersizing the BLAST Jackpot Sit & Go's prize pool to $2,000,000!

Can You Turn $20 into a $2 Million Prize Pool?

BLAST Jackpot Sit & Gos are some of the most exciting games on 888poker where players have the chance to win up to 10,000 times their buy-in. The popular format has also undergone several changes following customer feedback.

BLAST poker no longer features the forced all-in timer meaning from here on out, all BLAST games will play out like a traditional SNG.

And if you needed any more incentive to play BLAST games then you should know that the top prize pool for the $20 buy-in has ballooned to a whopping $2 million!

The inflated prize purse is available from now until January 4, 2023, which gives players plenty of time to win a life-changing amount of money.

It's really easy to play BLAST games so head to the 888poker client and jump straight into the action!

How to play BLAST poker:

  1. Check the poker lobby for BLAST
  2. Join a game where a random draw selects the prize pool.
  3. Once three players register, the game starts.
  4. Play your SNG as usual – no automatic all-in and no timer - with a possible prize pool of up to 10,000x your buy-in!

Big BLAST Poker Winners

A lucky few players have recently won big while playing BLAST poker. Earlier this month, on 888poker Ontario, "Starplayer50" pocketed $140,000 after they and two others were competing for the lion's share of a $200K jackpot prize pool. The runner-up and third-place finisher also bagged themselves $40,000 and $20,000 respectively.

In 2021, a trio of players hit the €1,000,000 jackpot, and what is even more impressive is that the jackpot was triggered from a €1 BLAST game. "Adria74" was the player who prevailed and collected the €700,000 allocated to the winner while second-place earned $200,000. Third-place also had a six-figure payout, with $100,000 being awarded to them.
