By now you should all be aware of the attractions of Fish Party poker at 32Red, namely 3-player progressive jackpot Sit & Go tournaments that can pay out thousands of times the buy-in. And you can sit down at these fun-filled games for as little as €1!
Of course, that’s already enough incentive to click the Sit & Go tab in the Poker Lobby and find the Fish Party section, but this month we’re rewarding players for enjoying themselves at the Fish Party tables by having three Added Money Flash tournaments to the tune of €10,000!
Flash tournaments are characterized by having 300 starting chips and 2-minute blind levels, thus producing exciting poker right from the off. There will be three Flash events, each requiring very doable milestones that can be achieved by simply playing Fish Party games.
To get your ticket for the €1,000 Added Fish Party Flash (20 March), the requirement is to play just 20 x €1 Fish Parties between 10-19 March. The other two Flash events are €3,000 and €6,000 Added respectively and have similar tasks, while it’s possible to bag tickets for all three in one fell swoop by winning 30 Fish Party tournaments of ANY buy-in!
The Sit & Go format has been popular since the beginning of the online poker boom for more than one reason. A key attraction is that players can enjoy the atmosphere of a tournament in a matter of minutes, while being up against a limited number of opponents also increases the likelihood of winning a prize.
The word ‘prize’ has taken on considerably more significance now that players are enjoying the fast-paced, three-player Fish Party Sit & Go tournaments because, thanks to the set-up revolving around progressive jackpots, the prizes at stake could be literally tens of thousands the size of the buy-in.
This happened yesterday when, while the players of a €5 tournament watched the mini Fish Party slot feature determine how much they were playing for, the amount the reels produced was a staggering €128,126!
Most of the time there’s one prize, which starts off at twice the buy-in, but with such an enormous jackpot all three players are guaranteed a chunk of the cash. As it turned out it was a 32Red Poker regular, Ronald A (aka fini00) who beat his two rivals to take the lion’s share – €64,063 to be precise. Not that the others will have been complaining to earn €38,437 and €25,625 respectively for their initial €5 buy-in…
Here’s what Ronald had to say…“Ever since the €1 Fish Party jackpot had been hit I started playing the €5 Fish Party tournaments a lot more when I could. I would play up to 8 tables at a time but I found that I couldn’t play any other tournaments because of how quick they go, and a €5 loss here and there can add up when you have a small bankroll as I did. Less than two weeks ago the €10 Fish Party Jackpot hit, and it was just a matter of time before somebody would hit the €5 jackpot.
On March 5th I played as usual. I was concentrating more on my multi-table tournaments rather than the Sit & Gos when out of the corner of my eye I saw the first fish party symbol pop up. I jumped out of my chair because I knew that the prize is determined based on the first symbol. My sound was off on my laptop so I don’t know what new sound I would hear. My heart started racing. I only dreamt about having a chance to play for the jackpot and with my luck over the past few months, I never thought that it would happen to me.
I ended up sitting out on all the other tables because a mis-click here would be devastating. I had to close the chat because I tried to type and play at the same time. Bad idea. I was nervous until I lost with AK to some hand that I don’t remember. I was down to 170 in chips. I was able to double up a few hands later and then put my tournament on the line with KQ all-in pre-flop against AJ. I had even more luck on my side and I survived. From then on I think I played as well as I could. I had over a 2 to 1 chip lead and was faced with a call this time with KQ. Blinds were high at this time and it seemed like my opponent was getting restless. I called, and he/she showed Q4 or K4 unsuited I believe. My hand held and I won. I checked my account a few times to make sure it was real. It’s hard to describe the feeling.”
Following on from another recent hit, when a €10 game paid out a whopping total of €207,438 (with the winner receiving €103,719), this is sure to attract even more players to what has already established itself as a fun way to spend a poker session.
The player-friendly, progressive Bad Beat Jackpot has a payout structure that rewards you even for playing at the same blind level as the winning hand. All you need to do to opt in is click on the BB icon, after which you’re eligible for a share of the money.
And there’s even more to play for, because we’ve added a great bonus prize to the Bad Beat Jackpot at 32Red Poker – now the winner will receive a €1,500 MPN Poker Tour package, too! The next stop on the MPNPT will be Tallinn (11-14 August), and whoever wins the actual Bad Beat Jackpot will also be awarded this fantastic package to the €150,000 festival in Estonia’s picturesque capital.
The most recent hit was at a €50 max table, with the jackpot standing at a massive €51,979.50 – four of a kind, queens, lost to a royal flush! The hand winner, Frodo86, pocketed €11,138.46 for his royal.
A total of 6 players had opted in across the stake, each seeing a juicy €742.56 added to their bankrolls.
Don’t miss out – opt in!
Regular 32Red players have no excuse for not opting into the progressive Bad Beat jackpot when at the cash tables. Apart from the potentially massive payouts for the winning hand (which goes to bad beats such as four kings losing to four aces), as well as those involved in the pot and at the table itself, anyone playing at the same blind level of the hand in question is also eligible for a share of the jackpot! As long as you click on the BB icon to opt in, you’re in the running for a chunk of cash when the jackpot hits.
And, just to remind you that this does indeed happen more frequently than you might imagine, the jackpot has been hit three times during a four day period! First, on €20 max table, with the running total at a whopping €50,215.48, four queens ‘lost’ to four kings. Even the 18 players who had opted in at that blinds level enjoyed a generous payout, each receiving €278.97 for their shrewdness. Not long after, on the same day(!), there was another hit, this time on a €50 max table, 2222 being pipped at the post by 4444. The Jackpot was then at € 45,329.52, so the 10 additional opted in players at the same stake pocketed €453.29…
Within three days history repeated itself, again at a €50 max table, and the excitement must have been almost unbearable when, with the progressive jackpot at €43,499.12, KKKK came up against a straight flush. 15 players had wisely clicked the BB icon to be opted in and, due to their playing at the same stakes, were rewarded with €271.86 each!
Get involved with the Bad Beat Jackpot, have fun, and good luck!
A so-called ‘bad beat‘ – when a seemingly unbeatable hand actually gets beaten – is the poker fan’s ultimate banana skin on the road to fame and fortune. You could be sitting with the best hand you’ve seen in ages, worried only about the ‘problem’ of how to extract the maximum from your unwitting opponent, hoping that they have something big enough to not only remain involved in the hunt but to justify putting their entire stack on the line. Everything might well go to plan, with all available chips in play, but there’s a single, crucial detail causing the ending to this would-be fairy tale to induce a sudden shortness of breath – your monster loses to another monster. Fate has, quite literally, dealt out two enormous hands at the same time and, however mighty your quads looked, there’s no prize for second.
Well, that’s what happens normally. But at 32Red Poker a bad beat could instead be very good news indeed, thanks to our player-friendly, multi-payout progressive Bad Beat Jackpot. Quite simply, the losing hand wins, the jackpot having built up continuously until the above scenario happens – and not only do the other players involved, at the table, receive a share of the spoils, but so does anyone playing at the same blinds level! All you need to do to be eligible is to opt in, which is simply a matter of clicking on the BB icon. And there you go.
The latest hit, for example, was on a €20 max table, with the running total at a massive €51,062… 5555 ‘lost’ to an 8-high straight flush. Only three players had opted in, and each received a juicy €1,702.07 for a mere click.
