How to play and how they work

The Nuts and Bolts

1- Get started by buying in at any level between 1 and 7 and you’ll be seated in a Blitz player pool with a stack of roughly 10 big blinds (give or take, depending on the level).
2- The objective is to win 5,000 chips. As soon as you get there, you’ve won your ticket to the next round.  As opposed to traditional satellites where you must beat 90% of the field, you just have to hit a certain amount of chips, and not worry about what everyone else is doing.
3- Because you are in a Blitz poker player pool, you aren’t forced to sit at a computer for hours to wait for a satellite to finish. Leave and come as you please, and you can pick up where you left off.
4- You can win more than once with one buy-in by finishing with more than 5,000 chips. Let’s say that you stack your opponent on an 8,000-chip pot. Not only will you get a ticket for the next level, but you get reseated at the same level with the excess 3,000 chips to try and win another ticket.  Unlimited potential.
5- FOR THE WIN: We all get stuck sometimes, or sometimes we just want to lock in a win.  With the FOR THE WIN feature you can.  The indicator at the bottom left of your screen will show you exactly how much cash value your chip stack has towards reaching the next level. The FTW amount is rounded up to the nearest multiple of $0.05. Simply click on the button to buy the difference and the ticket is yours.

What would you do with multiple tickets you ask? Sell ‘em for cold hard cash in our Venom Marketplace, or keep ‘em for a second or third bullet in your quest for the $1,000,000 first prize. The choice is yours.
