  • Biggest payout till date by 888 Poker Ontario

The poker market in Ontario is relatively new and licensed poker operators are doing their very best to promote and market their brand and services heavily.

888poker Ontario just got a nice boost in advertising after the online poker room announced that its BLAST jackpot was triggered.

Player Wins $140,000 BLAST Jackpot From $20 Bet

888poker runs its popular BLAST jackpots in a number of regulated online poker markets. For players in Ontario, the BLAST jackpot is relatively new as Ontario only legalised only Poker in April 2022.

The BLAST jackpot is popular at 888poker because it pays out a 10,000x multiplier on the wager. You don’t get to hear of a BLAST jackpot triggering on a regular basis because the odds for the BLAST jackpot to trigger is around 1 in 1,000,000. So if you end up betting $50 and win, you will get a payout of $50 x 10,000 which is $50,000 as most BLAST formats are based on a winner takes all format.


Things were a little different for the BLAST jackpot in Ontario as this format was based on a BLAST tournament. The BLAST tournament was triggered by three players from Ontario and all of them immediately knew that their minimum payout would be $20,000. The three battled it out to see how the $200,000 jackpot would be split.

A lucky poker pro from Ontario using the handle “Starplayer50” ended up winning the tournament to take the lion’s share of the jackpot and took home $140,000. The player with the handle “lizzyroyal11” came in second and collected $40,000 for coming in second place and the third place finisher “brewerybabe1” settled for the remaining $20,000.

888poker Ontario Offering Four BLAST Levels

The BLAST win for 888poker Ontario has definitely created a nice buzz in the market for the brand and the BLAST jackpot. 888 Poker Ontario currently has its BLAST jackpot divided into four levels. Players can participate with four different buy-ins fixed at C$0.10, C$1, C$5 and C$20.

These games will commence when a minimum of 3 players register and a random wheel will determine the total prize pool before the BLAST jackpot game can commence. To find out more, check out 888 Poker Ontario.
