It is not every day that players get to play for a share of a $1 million prize pool, and such occasions are even less frequent when the entire buy-in fee is just $109.
Such an opportunity is now available for players at 888poker, who will have a chance to battle it out for a share of a million-dollar prize pool in the $109 Big Shot Special Edition, the operator’s biggest poker tournament of 2021.
The regular Big Shot tournament is part of 888’s usual daily schedule: a reentry tournament at various buy-in levels across various buy-ins promising the biggest guarantee of the day.
For this special edition, the Big Shot is a month-long event, with dozens of Day 1 flights culminating in a final Day 2 at the end of the month with a huge $1 million guaranteed prize pool. Players are given plenty of opportunity to fight for a deep run, with up to three re-entries available per flight.
All players who survive a Day 1 flight will make their way to Day 2 of the tournament, which is scheduled for September 27. Making Day 2 will also mean being in the money, with a guaranteed return of your investment and some profit.
To meet the prize pool, the operator will need to attract 10,000 entries, which may be a tough feat—888 is not immune to overlays, so those on the lookout for value should keep a keen eye on how this tournament fills out.
However, considering the massive guaranteed prize pool, and all the Day 1 phases, we can expect poker players from far and wide to join the Big Shot for their chance at big money.
Lots of tickets will be given out in Day 1 Flight Freerolls, satellites are running 24/7 and players can participate in Winner Spinner and Gift Drops with free tickets as an award.
In addition to that, 888poker have other excellent ways to get a free ticket – 888poker Social Media Contests, 888pokerTV & StreamTeam Activities and 888poker Ambassadors Special Activities.
