today I tried for first time this blast games!played 4 of them for 10 c,to see how its work!its not bad,but its very tricky when time end and everybody go all in!three toruney was for 50 c and one for 20 c!so at 50 c first player get 35 c,second 15 and on 20 c "everything" go to winner!
but for me its very bad this wheel,where he go to 100 $ or 1000 $ and then fall down on 50 cents,come on!pick one at first,not to change in last moment!

When you see a flop like that you know that everything is over.
No more anticipation there Smile
The second ticket you got is a better one, so now is the time to get lucky.
Pretend it is a badugi game and win it Smile

I played the $5.00 ticket today the prize was only double and i managed to win it.

So a nice $10.00 free it is very nice getting free money once in a while.

As to badugi i won one two days ago and made a second place last night pretty nice game. Big Smile Big Smile

Getting free money is always nice and 10$ is not bad at all.
You are having a good run again with badugi i see Smile
So that means your bankroll of yours getting even bigger.

That is the big problem usually, the casinos. You are safe then. Smile

Having your bankroll in poker stars is a guarantee, and with fast cash outs, you can request at any time.

I won a free $1 ticket and played it yesterday morning and won the game..... It was a $5 dollar pit so got myself $3.50 for seven minutes of play. Nice format........ It helps to be ahead when the timer stops and you start being all in as it gives you a slightly better chance of surviving the heads up session.

dule - vu do not expect it to be bigger prize , for the stake of 0.10centi maximum thing you can expect is $ 1 , but many rarely gives $ 1 , most often it is 0.20 cents , when you're bored you can play Blast Big Smile Cool Smile

If you are bored you are not meant to play poker for real money.
Only bad things can come out of it.
Play for fun or do something else. Unless you dont care about your bankroll, or you are rich Smile
so then go ahead.

well I did say in my post,that I dont expect 100 000 $ for 0.10 c!my point was,and I did write it,that its not ok to make this kind of wheel,where he almost stop on big amount in last moment push on lower prize!when he almost stop,then he should stop on that spot,not to change that!

Hey guys!

I've just tried my first blast off with a 1$ ticket I got from the spin thingy. I spun 5$ and finished first for 3,50$.

Also, I got another ticket (not blast off though, probably a MTT ticket), but I can't access my tickets page... anybody else got that same problem?

GL

I did had the same problem and i sent them a mail they came back with a temporary measure and then the next day they came back and said it was corrected.

For a few days i had no problem but now it is coming back when i go to see my tickets the a blank page appear and after a while it goes back to a black page and then again after a while i can see my tickets.

You have to be patient try this and if it does not work here is the other way the gave me.

In the meantime, you should be able to view your tickets by accessing 888poker through the "Instant Play" link on www.888poker.com. Please note that you will not be able to access our newest BLAST poker tab in the Instant Play version.

Tell them that this is affecting your "experience" with them and ask for some
kind of compensation Smile
You never know. You may get some extra tickets out of it.
Not that you are not getting enough already, with all the promotions they are running Smile

If every time I had a complaint about something on a gambling site I would have get a dollar in comp I would be probably fairly rich by now. To be honest the more you cry about something the less likely they going to fix it because every time you make effort to tell them your problems you gonna get a new support guy who has to go through the whole thing from the beginning. At the end we will both get annoyed.

888 emailed me a few hours ago to say I had a $0.10 ticket ony account....

6 hours later, I've played 87 blast games and am up 35 buy ins. Only able to play one game at a time as I was on mobile, so could've easily have played 500 if I was on computer.

Of the 87, 4 have been x 10 but had nothing higher as yet.

VERY easily beatable.
