How to Get in on BLAST Jackpot Action

BLAST Jackpot games are essentially 3-handed tournaments where the prize pool is randomly set.

  1. Each BLAST game kicks off with a random draw to determine the prize pool.
  2. Players receive a starting stack of 1,500 chips regardless of the buy-in.
  3. The blind structure and prize pool distribution of each BLAST Jackpot game is set according to the multiplier.

After a set amount of time, the game places all three players all-in every hand until only one is left standing.
