Mystery Bounty tournaments add an extra dose of surprise and suspense to your game. Unlike regular bounty tournaments, with Mystery Bounty, the amounts on your opponents’ heads are initially kept hidden. Once you’ve knocked them out, the bounty is revealed to the table as you collect your winnings!
To play Mystery Bounty tournaments in the mobile app, just click on the dedicated tile on the Home Screen. Playing on PC? Click on the left ‘Mystery Bounty’ tab in the main 888poker lobby.
During the first part of the tournament, the ‘Early Phase’, it’s just like a regular tournament and there are no bounties… yet!
At a certain point, the ‘Final Phase’ kicks in and if you’ve made it this far, you’ll be in with a chance to take home an extra prize. This is the part where the Mystery Bounty element comes into play!
In the ‘Final Phase’, you’ll see a golden envelope on the heads of every player still at the table. Each envelope contains the hidden bounty you stand to win if you knock out that player.
Once you knock out an opponent, the envelope is opened, revealing the bounty you have won!
Generally, 50% of the tournament’s GTD prize pool goes into the Mystery Bounty prize pool, while the rest goes into the tournament’s regular prize pool.
