$1 Million Big Shot tournament at 888 Poker

You’ve got a million reasons to play on 888poker in September following the launch of the $1 Million Big Shot tournament.

The tournament is exactly what it sounds like, a multi-day tournament with a $1 million prize pool. The Big Shot has a $109 buy-in and dozens of Day 1 flights which have already started at 888poker. All players that survive a Day 1 flight move on to Day 2 which is scheduled for Monday, September 27.

All Day 1 flights are the same. Players will start out with 10,000 chips with the blinds at 30/60- and seven-dollar antes. The blinds go up every 18 minutes and late registration remains open for the first 160 minutes of the tournament. Players also have the option to re-enter up to three times during the late registration period.

Day1 flights conclude after the 18th blind level, or until only 14 percent of the field is left standing, whichever happens first. All players remaining, whether they have one chip or are the chip leader, advance to Day 2.

If the $109 buy-in is too rich for your poker budget there are tons of Big Shot satellites running daily in which you can win your way into the Big Shot for cheap. The buy-ins for these satellites start at $5.50 and go as high as $16.50. There is also one Big Shot Freeroll Satellite running daily at 888poker, giving you a free shot to earn at spot in the Big Shot.

There’s two other way to get a seat in the Big Shot. First, the 888poker Gift Drops will be awarding Big Shot Day 1 tickets to a few lucky 888poker players each day up until September 27. Second, the 888poker Winner Spinner will also be awarding tickets to the Big Shot all month long up until September 27.
