BLAST Poker

What is BLAST Sit & Go?

BLAST is a 4-handed, Super-turbo Texas Hold’em Sit & Go.
The prize pool of each BLAST Sit & Go is determined based on a draw that takes place at the beginning of each BLAST tournament and varies between two and 10,000 times the buy-in of the selected BLAST Sit & Go. 



Once the tournament starts, the BLAST timer starts the countdown. When the BLAST timer runs out, all the remaining players are all-in until there’s a single winner.
The blind structure and prize pool distribution of each BLAST Sit & Go is determined according to the multiplier that was assigned to the BLAST Sit & Go. The higher the multiplier, the longer the BLAST timer and the longer the BLAST Sit & Go plays until it reaches the all-in stage.



How to register for a BLAST Sit & Go
You’ll find the BLAST tab on the far right of the tab bar at the top of 888poker’s main lobby. 



Under this tab you’ll find all the available BLAST Sit & Go buy-ins.
In order to register for a BLAST Sit & Go, simply click on the buy-in you wish to play and select the amount of BLAST Sit & Go tournaments you would like to register for. 




Once 4 players have registered - the draw takes place, the BLAST counter starts and the game begins.

The Draw

The BLAST draw takes place as soon as the BLAST Sit & Go starts and this determines the prize pool.
The multiplier is randomly determined according the probability tables below:
