888poker Mystery Bounty Festival

The 888poker Mystery Bounty Festival is crowning champions left, right, and center, but there is one tournament where we won’t know who the winner is until March 26: the Mystery Bounty Festival Main Event.

The 888poker Mystery Bounty Festival Main Event, costing £215 to enter and guaranteeing at least $300,000 will be won, is by far the largest tournament on the busy schedule. Approximately one dozen Day 1s take place before Day 2 on March 25, which seems like plenty of time to build a stack that challenges for the lead, but that final Day 1 will be on you quicker than you realize.

Only 57 players, from 426 starters, have punched their Day 2 tickets and now stand a chance of becoming the 888poker Mystery Bounty Main Event champion. First place will come with a bankroll-boosting payout, not to mention the mystery bounties that come into play from the start of Day 2.

Ten mystery bounty envelopes contain $1,500, with another ten awarding their recipient $3,000. Three lucky 888poker players will receive mystery bounty payments worth $6,000, with another two walking way with an impressive $12,000. The largest mystery bounty tucked away is worth a quite staggering $30,000!

888poker Mystery Bounty Festival Results So Far

“LODDENThinks” is the biggest winner of the 888poker Mystery Bounty Festival so far, courtesy of taking down the $120,000 guaranteed Mystery Bounty Opening event last weekend. The British grinder turned $109 into $9,620 plus the title of champion. While $9,620 is a significant score, it is over three times less than the largest mystery bounty the festival’s Main Event will award; let that sink in for a moment!
