888poker’s Made to Amaze tournament, which has been running every Sunday since May, has given away some incredible prizes to its winners so far, with its low $5 entry fee and its $10,000 guaranteed prize pool. But that is only a small part of what the tournament is actually about.
Every week, Made to Amaze has a special extra prize for the winner, and this week is particularly valuable: The player who wins it is going to receive a yearly subscription for the $109 Big Shot, the pinnacle of 888poker’s weekly tournament schedule.
For a low $5 investment, every player registered with 888poker will have a shot to win what amounts to $5,668 in extra value, with 52 tickets for the popular Big Shot given away by the operator.
Such an opportunity does not come along for low stakes players too often, making this week’s edition of “Made to Amaze” a hugely valuable one.
The $109 Big Shot is a weekly 888poker tournament which runs every week with a $150,000 guaranteed prize pool and an amazing structure that makes it the staple tournament in the operator’s Sunday schedule.
Made to Amaze Keeps on Giving
Made to Amaze is a promotional tournament that has been running at 888poker since May 30, awarding the top finisher with a unique prize each week
Even without this extra on top, Made to Amaze is a great tournament for low stakes tournament players, with the $5 buyin fee all going towards the prize pool—*there is no rake*.
The $10,000 guaranteed prize pool makes sure that the top finishers are valuable regardless of the number of players who register into the event.
The winners of the Made to Amaze tournament, however, have received some extra prizes each week, with the actual value fluctuating quite a bit. Some of the prizes that were given away since May include:
- A private $2,000 weekly tournament for the player and his friends
- iPhone 12
- Sony PlayStation 5
- Free entry into the entire PKO Series
- Yearly subscription to $109 Big Shot
- Unique 888poker app avatar
- $500 for every goal by a chosen player at EURO 2020
- $1000 for every win by a chosen team at EURO 2020
This colorful plethora of prizes that were given away to the winners has made the Made to Amaze promotion a great success, with players eagerly awaiting to receive emails and in-app notifications which reveal the prize for the next Sunday’s tournament.
888poker’s Revolution in 2021
The year has been very a strong one for 888poker: The operator revamped its weekly tournament schedule, added various valuable promotions to the list, and launched a number of lucrative tournament series with massive guaranteed prize pools.
Back in February, 888poker introduced a new weekly tournament schedule, which increased the overall weekly tournament guaranteed prize pool by $500,000 by adding the Big Shot tournaments onto the calendar.
Along with the $109 Big Shot, the operator also introduced the $525 Big Shot with a $100,000 guaranteed prize pool, as well as a series of lower buyin Big Shots and other daily tournaments such as The Voyage, The Dash, and The 6-Max Mayhem.
The initial launch of the new tournament calendar was followed by a massive promotional push that saw $200,000 in tournament tickets and seats given away to the players in return for participation in various games at 888poker.
To add even more tournament action to the schedule, 888poker has also launched a number of exciting tournament series and unique tournaments over the year.
In May and June, the operator ran XL Spring Series, which had a $1,000,000 guaranteed prize pool across 25 events. The same guarantee was recently offered for an exclusive $109 Big Shot Special Edition that ran dozens of Day 1 flights and ended up with a significant overlay for the players.
The XL Spring Series was a success, so 888poker is now bringing an even bigger $2,000,000 in prizes over the 45 events of the XL Autumn Series, scheduled to run between October 17 and November 1, with the huge $1,000,000 Main Event being the central feature of the Series.
Made to Amaze runs every Sunday at 6pm GMT.
