888Poker Steps Up the Chase with Fast BLAST Games
888Poker once again pushed the envelope and set the bar higher – possibly out of competition’s reach – with their BLAST events, which were introduced last year.
Consisting of super-turbo Texas hold’em sit and goes played four-handed during five-minute events, BLAST tournaments have hit the ground running in style, helping 888Poker strengthen its position in the gambling market.
The normal length of the game – 5 minutes – depended on the multiplier. A 5x game would normally last 6 minutes, whereas a 10x game would go for eight minutes. A 100x game would be played for 10 minutes, and ultimately 10,000x game would have 12 minutes set on the clock.

888Poker has decided to bring changes to this innovative approach by introducing Fast BLAST tournaments, where you have only two minutes on the clock to extinguish your need for speed. The new games are now available at the 10 cents and go from $1, $5, $15 $30 buy-in levels.
BLAST timer starts the countdown as soon as four players register. Each of those four players with be given a starting pack of 1,500 chips, regardless of the drawn prize pool multiplier. Once the BLAST timer runs out, all the remaining players will go all-in until there is a single winner.
