Snap is 888poker’s equivalent to a fast-fold poker, allowing you to play through more hands in a single sitting. All events tend to have a date set up, to the following schedule:

  • Blast Boost (up to 1 Blast ticket per hour) – Monday & Wednesday – 16:00 – 18:00

There are no fixed stakes you should join to get the drops, as 888poker will tailor the awards so long as you are participating in Snap, Blast, MTTs or cash games. To make things better, 888poker is inviting players to join the Winner Spinner, where everyone gets a chance to win a random award from the Winner Spinner Prize Wheel.
