The Festival of Felt: Ignition’s Holiday Poker Event (Plus Winning Strategies!)

The holidays are here and that means we’re kicking off the best big money online poker tournaments of the season in our Festival of Felt event series. These tournaments feature poker games playing in December through January and offer an absolute TON of guaranteed cash prizes. There’s over $3M at stake – that’s three million dollars of bonus cash up for grabs!

You don’t need to win much of that prize money at our casino to have a very Merry Christmas (or a Happy Holiday of whatever kind you’re in the mood to celebrate). Heck, if you play online poker for real money and manage to take the top spot as the best player in one of these Festival of Felt games, you can celebrate them all!

What is the Festival of Felt?

The Festival of Felt is a series of online poker tournaments at Ignition Casino, running through the holiday season. There are $3 million in guaranteed prizes in all the poker games, and it all kicks off with Cyber Mad Monday. For this portion of online poker events, there’s over $340,000 in guaranteed prizes. Some lucky and skilled players will be walking into the new year with a lot of bonus cash! The big event of the Cyber Mad Monday series happens December 2nd, and qualifiers play from November 20th until then.

This is your best chance to get started playing online poker games with Bitcoin, too! There’s a huge deposit bonus that’s always available at Ignition Casino, and you can check out our super simple step by step Bitcoin deposit guide if you’re new to Bitcoin. Literally anyone can get started with Bitcoin, which is just another form of money – it’s a lot easier than you might think.

12 Days of Turbos

The Festival of Felt event series continues with Ignition Casino’s 12 Days of Turbos. These are turbo-style online poker tournaments that will jingle your bells from December 7th to 18th. There’s 61 events in all with $1.5 million in guaranteed cash and prizes on the line. And you can win faster than lightning because these are turbo events where you can play online poker for real money with games that feature rapidly-increasing blinds, scorching hot action, and winners popping off constantly.

The main event offers $125,000 in guaranteed prize money, and qualifiers start with tickets as low as $2.20 for one entry to get in the game, so your journey into playing online poker with Bitcoin can start with the tiniest step possible.

Holiday Series

Once you’ve conquered the 12 Days of Turbos at our casino and are all warmed up to play online poker for real money, it’s time for our Holiday Series of tournaments. These play out from December 26th to January 8th, with a total guaranteed prize pool of $1,000,000. It’s the best way to nurse that holiday hangover and poker your way into New Year’s Eve and beyond with a ton of bonus cash. 2020 was a doozy – why not start off 2021 with a huge online poker tournament win (powered by a bonus you got from playing online poker with Bitcoin?)

Best Festival of Felt Strategies

Okay, there’s tons of money at stake. How do you come away an online poker winner? Here’s a few pieces of advice:

  • Play your way in. Many tournaments have qualifiers, so don’t think you need to pony up the dough for entry into that one main event. Try a few smaller satellite tournaments that let you play online poker for real money and win a ticket to the larger poker events with the bigger guaranteed prize pools. It’s also a lot more fun and makes your poker session feel like you’re in a sports movie where everything is riding on one person’s will to win.
  • Don’t get gun-shy. The 12 Days of Turbos events are not forgiving to online poker players who want to sit and wait around all day for a big hand to arrive. You’ll get blinded to death quickly. The pressure’s on, but it’s way more fun because you get to loosen up, get aggressive, and put other players to the test. We predict that holiday gunslingers who keep their candy cane revolvers loaded and ready to shoot will be winning big bonus cash prizes in these tournaments.
  • Have fun! It’s the holidays, folks. Whether you’re playing online poker with Bitcoin and big stacking or you’re just a humble elf from Santa’s Workshop dreaming of winning enough money for your own eggnog jacuzzi, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
