888poker launch more recreational friendly MTT schedule

The new key tournaments

888poker are the latest operator to revamp their tournament offering in order to ‘level the playing field’ by giving professionals less of an edge.

That means quicker tournaments, more payouts, more PKO tournaments, more tournaments during prime time hours, less re-entries and shorter late registration periods.

The Big Fish, Monsoon and Mega Deep brands will be retired and replaced with six new brands across different buy-in levels.

Mayhem and Dash are turbo tournaments scheduled late in the evening. Voyage is a low stakes deep stacked tournament that start early. Rumble is a PKO format which starts early. Classic is a pure freezeout and Big Shot is a re-entry with big guarantees.

On Sundays the Big Shot will boast the biggest guarantees from low to high stakes.

Tournament Time (GMT) Guarantee
$5.50 Big Shot 14:45 $5,000
$33 Big Shot 16:00 $15,000
$525 Big Shot (Two day) 17:00 $100,000
$109 Big Shot 19:00 $150,000

Over $500,000 will be guaranteed every week and more tournaments than ever will have at least a $10,000 guarantee.

To celebrate the new MTT schedule $200,000 in tournament tickets will be given away over the next five weeks in the form of gift drops/spins for playing real money games.
