Ignition Poker is running a trio of special events between now and the first week of January which between them have an extra $2 million in prize money.
Ignition Poker is really stepping up to the mark this Christmas season and offering players a fantastic selection of goodies to unwrap in its three-tiered Festival of Felt. The Festival is already underway and continues until January 6th – by which time more than $2 million in added prize money will have been distributed to players under the site´s new payout structure.
The three tiers of the Festival of Felt consist of a “Twelve Days of Turbos” tournament series running until December 12th, a special edition of Ignition Poker´s “Wild Wednesday” on December 26th, and a “New Year Mini Series” from January 2nd to January 6th. In total, there will be an additional 107 opportunities for players to start the New Year with a boost their bankrolls.
The Twelve Days of Turbos
The Twelve Days of Turbos series started last Saturday and is already in full throttle. The packed schedule of sixty fast-paced events includes something for everyone and has buy-ins starting at $13.20. Ignition Poker is supporting the series with a comprehensive satellite schedule which includes Cheap Seats sub-satellites for several feature events, including:
Ignition Poker Twelve Days of Turbos Feature Events:
|9 Dec – 8:12am||$109.00||$5,000||Early Bird Main Event|
|9 Dec – 3:12pm||$82.00||$50,000||Mini Main Event|
|9 Dec – 4:12pm||$162.00||$112,000||12 Days Special|
|9 Dec – 5:12pm||$270.00||$150,000||Main Event|
|9 Dec – 6:12pm||$109.00||$30,000||2nd Chance Event|
|12 Dec – 7.12pm||$325.00||$50,000||High Roller|
|12 Dec – 11.12pm||$55.00||$12,000||Wrap Up Event|
Like many of Ignition Poker´s tournaments, all the events in the Twelve Days of Turbos series will have the new “modified” payout structure in which at least 20% of the field will finish in the money. The flatter payout structure does not appear to affect payouts for players finishing on the final table, just those who would receive slightly more for finishing in the top 15% of the field.
Wild Wednesday – December 26th
If you are able to tear yourself away from the TV on Boxing Day, you will find even more tournaments than usual packed into Ignition Poker´s Wild Wednesday. For one day only, the site will be adding seventeen new tournaments to the schedule which between them carry an additional $250,000 in guaranteed prize pools.
The exact schedule for the special Wild Wednesday event is not going to be released until next week, when the satellite schedule will also be released. However, Ignition Poker has said that the satellites will start from Friday December 14th – giving players a full twelve days to qualify for the more valuable events (is there a “twelve day theme developing here?).
Ignite the Year with Ignition Poker´s New Year Mini Series
Again the actual content of the New Year Mini Series remains a secret until closer to the date, although it has been revealed the series will consist of thirty tournaments guaranteed for more than $500,000 and feature a High Rollers event with a $119,000 prize pool on January 6th. I expect the schedule will closely resemble that of the Twelve Days of Turbos – only with half as many events.
To make sure you don´t miss out on any of the festive action, visit Ignition Poker today. Not only are there some very attractive tournaments scheduled in the Twelve Days of Turbos, but satellites are running around the clock offering the opportunity to qualify for all the events at a fraction of the buy-in. If you are not yet playing at the site, be sure to read my review first in order to find out how you can take advantage of a 100% match on your first deposit up to $1,000.
