Ignition Poker´s $30,000 Promotion for First Depositors

Posted on by John Lathram

Mobile Jackpot Sit & Go's at Ignition PokerIgnition Poker is running a time-limited promotion for first depositors in which – in addition to their bonuses – players will receive a ticket to play in the site´s new Sit & Go Jackpot games. Depending on the random prize drawn at the start of the game, players can win up to $30,000 for free.

Last November, Ignition Poker added three-player, hyper-turbo Sit & Go Jackpot games to its portfolio – giving players the opportunity to win up to 1,200 times their buy-ins in minutes. At the beginning of this month, the site added the game to its mobile software, giving players more opportunities to “spin and win” on the go.

Now Ignition Poker is supporting both the Sit & Go Jackpot games and its mobile software by offering players who have not yet made a real money deposit into their accounts the opportunity to spin and win up to $30,000. The offer is time-limited – it expires on Sunday March 4th – and is only available to new players and those already with an account who have only used the site for play money poker.

How to Qualify for the Promotion

In order to be in with a chance of winning up to $30,000, you have to make your first real money deposit at Ignition Poker. If you do not already have an account with Ignition Poker, you will find a link to the account registration page in my Ignition Poker review.

It does not matter whether you create your account via a PC browser, the downloadable client or the mobile software; but, before funding your account, please note there is an advantage to making a deposit via the mobile cashier.

  • Players who make a deposit via the mobile cashier and play one hand of poker on the mobile software will be eligible for a $30.00 Sit & Go Jackpot ticket.
  • Players who make their first deposit via the web cashier or via the downloadable software – and play one hand of poker – will only be eligible for a $15.00 Sit & Go Jackpot ticket.

In order to receive your free Sit & Go Jackpot ticket, you must have contributed to the rake deducted from the qualifying hand of poker – so it may be necessary to play more than one hand if you fold your cards pre-flop in the first hand you play. The free Sit & Go Jackpot ticket will be credited to your account within 24 hours, and you have fourteen days in which to use it.

How to Spin and Win up to $30,000

Once the ticket has been credited to your account, you have the option of using it straightaway or becoming more familiar with the Sit & Go Jackpot games by playing for lower stakes beforehand. Buy-ins exist at $2.00, $7.00, $15.00 and $30.00, and each game starts when three players are registered.

The prize pool is determined by a random spin of a wheel at the beginning of each game. The wheel awards multipliers from 2x the buy-in to 1,200x the buy-in. In the event that a higher multiplier is spun – 120x, 240x or 1,200x – the winner of the game only receives 100x, 200x or 1,000x the buy-in, with the second and third placed players sharing in the prize pool as per the table below:

Prize Pool$30.00 Buy-In$15.00 Buy-In$7.00 Buy-In$2.00 Buy-In

Naturally, the likelihood is that the lower prize pool multipliers will be drawn more frequently than the higher multipliers; but the last time the top prize was spun in a $30.00 buy-in game was on January 14th – so it must be about time it was spun again! You can find out if it is your turn to be lucky by making your first deposit at Ignition Poker today. Regardless of whether you win $30,000 or not, your first deposit will be eligible for a 100% match first deposit bonus of up to $1,000, so it is well worth a shot.
