888poker Announces 3 New Poker Tournament Festivals

888poker is wooing players this year this year with bigger and better festivals on offer. Check out their three new poker tournament festivals!

All set to run for a period of 12 months, a trinity of online tournament festivals will be succeeding in the Super XL Series. XL Inferno Championships worth $7.5 million will kick off on the 7th of May, followed by XL Eclipse Championships in September. Early 2018 will witness the grand finale, XL Blizzard Championships.

Course Of Live Action

Boasting a massive line-up of 197 occasions, the XL Inferno Championships is the wealthiest online series ever at 888poker with a guaranteed $7.5 million, a whopping 50% increment from the previous series. The Championship starts with a $109 XL Inferno Sunday Lightning edition with an assured prize pool of $30,000. Later in the day, there’s another event costing around $160 entry, with a guaranteed $300,000.

You can take a look at the entire line-up of 197 events on their website. Some of the tournament favorites include.

  • $5,200 XL Inferno $400K Super High Roller Chip-In
  • $55 XL Inferno $10,000 Turbo Chip-In
  • $160 XL Inferno $65,000 Turbo High Roller
  • $215 XL Inferno $150,000 Mini High Roller
  • $30 XL Inferno $50,000 Micro Mini Main Event
  • $2,100 XL Inferno $500,000 High Roller
  • $215 XL Inferno $100K Mini Super High Roller Chip-In

Raising Funds By Playing Poker

You may have noticed that all the three tournaments have the word ‘Chip-in’ in their details, which has a special significance in connection with raising charities. Funds raised from these special tournaments will go towards the Global Poverty Charity Portfolio and Raising For Effective Giving. So, without affecting the guaranteed prize pool of the tournament, 888poker will be contributing the fee amount to charities for a good cause.

Return of Champion of Champions Event

Just like the January XL Series, the XL Inferno Championships will mark the return of Champion of Champions. Entry to this event is only limited to those who grabbed at least one of the 197 championships tournament. You can win a 2017 World Series Of Poker Main Event package if you win the Champion of Champions event.  The first runner-up will get a $1050 Main Qualifier Ticket and a Crazy 8s WSOP Side Event pack, while the 2nd runner up will only receive the latter. $600 tournament tickets will be given to players finishing on the 4th and 5th. For all the players ranked between 6 through 40 will be handed a $55 tournament ticket.

888poker has always looked forward to changing the way you experience live poker, and with the inception of 888Live Festivals, you can expect something bigger, better, and more unique than any other live event. A wide range of buy-ins awaits you this year ranging from small tournament rolling all the way to high rollers.
