888 Poker has launched a new super-turbo Sit & Go game – BLAST – and supported the launch of its new game with a super-lucrative $1 million promotion.
888 Poker´s new BLAST game is a four-handed, super-turbo Sit & Go game that awards a random prize at the beginning of each game. Play continues for a predetermined number of levels until time runs out, when the game changes to an All-In Shootout.
BLAST represents a significant departure from the usual super-turbo Sit & Go games. It is not the first to host games four-handed, nor the first to vary the frequency of its top prizes according to the buy-in, but it is the first to introduce a time limit to each of its games to create a new level of excitement.
How to Play BLAST
Games of BLAST are available at four buy-ins – $0.01, $1.00, $5.00 and $30.00. Once four players have registered for the game, a random prize is drawn between 2x the buy-in and 10,000x the buy-in. Due to their being four players, the 2x prize is drawn less frequently than in three-handed super-turbo games on other sites.
The game gets underway like a normal Sit & Go, with levels of two minutes each. However, depending on the prize pool multiplier that has been drawn, the game only lasts a predetermined number of levels:
- If a 2x or 5x prize pool multiplier has been drawn, the game lasts for three levels.
- If a 10x prize pool multiplier has been drawn, the game continues until the end of level four.
- If a 100x prize pool multiplier has been drawn, five levels are played in the game.
- If a 1,000x or 10,000x prize pool multiplier has been drawn, there are six levels of action.
Once the game reaches its predetermined time limit, the remaining players are all-in every hand until the winner is decided. Although removing a degree of skill from the endgame, the All-In Shootout does provide for a more exciting conclusion.
Also different from many other super-turbo Sit & Go games, BLAST has a payout structure that can see second, third and even fourth-placed players sharing in the prize money. Only in games with a 2x prize pool multiplier does the winner take all.
The BLAST $1 Million Promotion
