888poker Blast Goes Warp Speed w/ 2-Min SnGs, $1m Jackpots

If you play the hyper-turbo Blast poker games on 888, you know they're already pretty fast.

Get ready to go even faster.

888poker has introduced some new features to its fastest-paced NLHE game – and now they're even faster.

It's also added the chance to win your way to the World Series of Poker Main Event or play for a $1,000,000 prize pool.

From 12 Minutes to 2 Minutes

Blast has proven to be a very successful addition to the 888poker lineup and it’s about to get even more popular.

BLAST lobby
Got 2 mins? You can get a Blast in.

If you don’t know Blast Poker yet, these are 888poker’s 4-max hyper-turbo Sit-and-Go tournaments.

Play starts when 4 players buy-in and the timer begins. Once that 12-minute timer runs out, everyone left in the tournament is all in every hand until a winner is found.

Now there's an even faster version of Blast where time runs out in just two minutes. The games are available for as little as 10 cents and the buy-ins reach all the way up to $30.

In addition to the new 2-minute time limit, there’s now a special $100 buy-in Blast option

These $100 tournaments have the same maximum prize-pool multiplier as the lower buy-in ones which means that if you hit the jackpot you’ll be playing for a cool $1m.

If you happen to hit the $1m jackpot tournament, nobody loses. Even if you get sucked-out on in the first hand 888poker will add $100,000 to your bankroll; win it and you’ll be $600,000 richer.

$10 Blast to WSOP

There’s also a new feature for the $10 level of Blast events. These now have an additional prize pool qualifier and that says “WSOP MAIN EVENT”!

That’s right. Play $10 Blast tournaments and you can win your way into the biggest live tournament in the world – the World Championship in Las Vegas this summer.

The last winner was player Jhowat73 from Canada, who won his prize package on May 25.

If you want an impression of how it feels to play such a fast-paced tournament on 888poker, watch Courtney Gee’s first attempt at it.
