888Poker BLAST $300k & $50k Jackpots Hit!3 years agoSponsored
888poker's hugely popular jackpot-style BLAST Poker game has paid out massively over the weekend. Two whopping prize pools of $300,000 and $50,000 were hit at $30 buy-in and $5 buy-in tables by eight very lucky 888poker players.
BLAST tables are four-handed turbo Sit & Go's and the prize pool isn't shown until the game start. Can you imagine the excitement on the players' faces when they saw $300K light up? The prize pool varies between two times and 10,000 times the buy-in and, in this instance, the maximum amount was dialed up on both tables.
A $300K Prize Pool is Hit
In the 300K game, the top payout of $180,000 went to Swedish player, bucopepic, taking down runner-up sreutov from Russia, who didn't do too shabbily either with a $60,000 payday. Third and fourth place finishers took home $30K each.
The final hand saw bucopepic all-in pre-flop with 6c5c. The flop came down 8-5-7, turn 2, river 4, and it was all over.
Another Big Pay Out!
In the second big win of the weekend, player Mn79Ben, an 888poker member for two years hailing from Malaysia, hit it big in a BLAST SnG with a $50K prize pool.
The last hand featured an all-in with Mn79Ben holding two black Queens up against Ah6c. The Queens held, and Mn79Ben walked away with the top prize of $30,000.
Second-place finisher, mario868116 from Russia bagged $10,000 and 4th and 5th place each received $5,000.
All-in-all it's been a fantastic weekend for 888poker players. Make sure you don't miss the chance of bagging yourself a big payday at our BLAST poker tables!
