Can you stand the heat from Blaze Poker?
Blaze Poker is 188BET's offering to the exhilarating world of "fast-fold" poker. Instead of being seated at the same table, Blaze Poker players join a large player pool in which opponents change every hand!
If you get dealt a weak hand such as and do not want to play it, just fold — even if the action is not yet on you — you will be whisked to a new table and dealt another hand. Don't like your new hand either? Fold again and receive new cards almost instantly!
Those of you who are superb at multitasking will be happy to know it is possible to play multiple Blaze Poker tables simultaneously, meaning you will be able to play many more hands per hour than you would at a standard online poker table. This in turn potentially increases your profits by a substantial margin!
Remain a mystery at the Anonymous Tables
188BET Poker has anonymous tables that are superb if you want to remain unknown. Do you sometimes feel that certain players are following you around and always winning pots? Then sit down at an anonymous table where each player's alias, avatar and profile remains completely secret at all times!
Lose With Quads and Potentially Win Huge!
The revamped 188BET Bad Beat Jackpot could pay you a potentially life-changing sum of money when you lose with four-of-a-kind or better and you have opted into the Bad Beat Jackpot.
Imagine you are sat at a cash game at 188BET and after a brief but intensive raising war you get your money in on the flop with a set and find yourself up against a straight flush draw. The turn improves you to quads, but the river is cruel and completes your opponent's straight flush. Ouch. The pain of losing with such a strong hand is suddenly replaced by joy, as tens of thousands of euros are deposited into your 188BET account because you just triggered the Bad Beat Jackpot!
As you have probably gathered from the above example, the Bad Beat Jackpot is triggered every time you lose with four-of-a-kind or better. All you need to do to have a chance to win a vast sum of cash is opt into the Bad beat Jackpot — which only costs €0.02 per hand — and hope to lose with quads or better! Think of it as an insurance policy if you will; an insurance policy that could pay dividends when it pays out. And at just €0.02 per hand, can you really afford not to be in the Bad Beat Jackpot?
It is not just the loser of the big hand that receives part of the Bad Beat Jackpot. Almost everyone who has opted in will receive a payout. Check out the list below to see who benefits when the BBJ is triggered. Eighty percent of the current jackpot is distributed as follows:
- 40% is awarded to the losing hand (the bad beat winner)
- 20% is awarded to the winning hand
- 10% is awarded to the other players at the table where the jackpot was triggered
- 10% is awarded to players playing the same stakes and have opted into the bad beat jackpot.
The remaining 20% of the jackpot is used to "seed" — that is start — the next Bad Beat Jackpot.
