This is a discussion on 888 micro blast? within the online poker forums, in the Poker Rooms section; ok i played close to 40 10 cent blast tournament and i only seen 20 cent and 50 cent prize pool coming up on wheel
During this year, I have played many times in these tournaments, with a buy-in of 10 cents, and the largest prize pool was $ 1. But it was only once.

I believe here somewhere someone said not long ago that he managed to win slightly bigger prize while playing these low-stake blast tournaments ir something like that ...

re: Poker & 888 micro blast?
I believe the 10x ($1) prize pool is only 2% and it gets much harder for the 3 bigger prizes.
Someone here relatively recently played several hundred of these and finally managed a 1000x ($100) prize pool, which he won 1st for $60.
They do happen, but the odds are like winning the lottery.

For me once I hit $10 prize pool in a micro blast game last year and nothing more than that.
Its in danish, because I play on 888.dk, but the tables should be readable for anyone even without understanding the rest of the text. The likelyhood of seeing the 1$ price pool in 10c BLAST is 3%, so not seeing it 40 times in a row is a little bit unlucky but completely normal.
Especially these 10c and 1$ event, that normally only last two minutes, are really just lottery type slot machines. If you want to actually learn to play poker and have a chance of beating the rate in the long run, you need to play something else.

Fist time I tried to play 5$ blast on 888 the prize pool was 5000. I finished 2nd and got 1000. After that I tried it several times but 25$ prize pool was the biggest

I play those BLAST sng whenever I have won a ticket. Same here , only 2x prize pools and only once a $1.In those $0.10 what's their problem and they hurry to go in all in mode?This is pathetic , anyways. In bigger buy ins this is not happening so soon as far as I know.
As for your second question about the wheel , the prizes are weighted for obvious reasons.I log in every day in order to spin the wheel no matter if I play poker. I am quiet happy about the prizes. I have won 2x$33 tickets , 2x$5.50 , 1x$16.50 and many casino and free bets. They could be better I know but ok.

Most of the time its $0.20 sometimes its $0.50. Rarely and I mean rarely it hits a $1 and never hits $100 and $1000.
