Jackpot Poker is a type of Sit & Go where the prize pool is determined after all three players are seated. The prize pool is completely random and could be as high as $1 million depending on the buy-in. To participate, choose your buy-in amount and select the number of simultaneous tourneys you want to play. Then sit back, wait for all three players to take a seat, and discover the final prize pool. You can find Jackpot Poker in Hold’em and Omaha formats.
When you play in a Knockout Tournament, we’ll place a cash bounty on every player in the tournament. When you knock someone out, half their bounty goes into your pocket and the other half goes on your head. For a complete description and example of how they work, click here.

Cyclones are Blitz Poker satellites that let you advance through 9 levels to win a tournament ticket to a large poker event, mainly the Venom. They’re like regular satellites, except you don’t have to make a final table or win the tournament to get that ticket. No matter which level you buy into, you’ll advance to the next one simply by earning 5,000 chips. And you can win more than once with one buy-in. If you finish a Cyclone level with more than 5,000 chips, you’ll move to the next level AND get seated again at the same level with those excess chips. Cyclones also include a For The Win feature. If you really want that ticket but you just don’t have the patience to level up, you can hit the For The Win button and pay the difference.
