888poker Introduces BLAST

Tags: 888poker, blast
Posted on Monday, July 25, 2016 by "T".
Today marks the launch of 888poker's 'BLAST', a new type of short-handed super-turbo sit and go's where one can win up to 10,000 times the buy-in! Now you might think that BLAST is a copycat of Spin and Go, but there are a few key differences. 1. 4 instead of 3 players can participate. 2. 1,500 starting stack instead of 500 - a lot more room for play. 3.  A unique countdown timer.

These type of games are becoming more and more frequent and seem to be very popular. To be able to win up to 10,000 times the buy in is quite phenomenal. Good luck to all playing

I tried this new game some days before on 888. and i must say i like this new game. This was a combination of Sin & Go and Timebomb hyper Turbo sng´s- verry good to play. Off cousre in These games you have ahigh variance, but this was a nice game if you had not many time to Play Blink

I tried it on 888 a few days ago it is like the sng hero of Party Poker with four players instead of three like spin & go of Stars.

The difference with the hero one is the buy in that start at $0.10 the one i tried and got a $0.20 prize and won the game. Big Smile Big Smile

well this is another of those "casual player oriented" games, which have very little to do with poker and resemble more pure casino. what i like about these ones, is that they offer 10 cents buy-ins, great way to spend a couple of bucks while having some fun... blast and your bankroll is gone...

It's like they crossbreed spin and go with survivor and making it more random. Why they need more stacks if they have a countdown timer anyway? I think this is stupid.

Big Smile Thumbs Up indeed

i doubt that anyone ever won or gonna win the 1 million on spin&go, 10k on blast or any other hyper thingy. maybe once in a year after they made enough money.

its always the same: 10 times you get a 2x multiplier. the 11th time you get a 4x or 6x multiplier in highlighting colors pretending you hit the "jackpot". do the math ...
skill reduced down to 10% due to the high blinds after 2mins, rake increased to 80%. just bingo imo.

BLAST?
Well, I normally don't play this type of game (hyper-turbo, jackpot, short-stack, etc.), but with 1,500 starting stack, multipliers up to 10,000 times, and affordable $0.10 buy-in option, I might give it a shot sometime at 888poker.

888 does not work on my pc.

But my 2c worth, these games are great for someone who can afford to lose 10c in 1 minute, that enjoys bingo and can't be "bothered" to play poker.

Running the number, you need to win 50% above natural distribution to make a tiny profit and a few points, wow that's a blast of a variance to crush to be a winning player.

tonight I played this new game BLAST , can say it is desperately poor , I was many times the winner more than 70 % of tournaments , I got $ 1.50 , the maximum award that gives 888 poker at $ 0.10 buy-in is $ 1 , and it was only 2 times , and I participated in the 30 tournament minimum Confused

I had played one a few days ago and won it however i had noticed that there was time going down but the win was before it expire.

Last night i played another one and the game was not over before time wen out and then when there is no more time the game change to an all in game until it is won.

I had not read the rules before so i did not know i just hate this all in game. Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap!

So...... 888 have gone and got you. Cos they have cheap or buy ins, you all love playing..... Blasting a couple of dollars away while having a bit of fun. This is what they want.... Make money easily..... And as long as it sticks to the usual motto, when the fun stops, stop..... Make it more fun for longer! Is that right?

Well then that's true not estanto copy of the spin and go to PS, but is very similar although admittedly that's good to give more chips to increase the range of play and that the timer is good because it forces play more hands and stronger.

Hello,
I just sign up for a 10 cent one. It stoped at $1000 and then jumped to $0.20 .... this is rly phucked up. Aww crap!
Biggest one i've got was for $0.50 so far. But i hate that all-in thing after 6 minutes. I was chip leader5-6 times but lost all of them when blast came.

Have a nice day / night and GL.

Wonder if it's a glitch or just truly intentional - if the latter then this game is more evil than I previously thought.

Now doesn't jump anymore to other prize.... it stopped at $0.20 and if it would have jumped to the next prize, it would have been the $1000 Smile) They fixed it i think.

Have a nice day / night and GL.
