Jackpot Sit & Go Tournaments 

These are for players who feel the need for speed. 

Jackpot Sit & Go’s are three-player tournaments with blinds that increase every three minutes. It’s a “Hyper-Turbo” format – pretty much Texas Hold’em poker for the adrenaline junkie. And you can jack up the excitement even more by playing up to four games at the same time. 

To get going, once you’ve picked “Jackpot Sit & Go” from the tournaments page, just choose your buy-in amount when you register for a game – your buy-in options are either $2, $7, $20, $60 or $100 – and how many tournaments you want to play in. (Remember, Tiger, only up to four tournaments at a time). 

As soon as a third player has registered, it’s game on. The spinning reels determine the randomized prize pool for a given tournament. The jackpot payout table will show you how the multiplier works and give you a look at your probability of success.

Freeroll Tournaments

If you’re starting out in the poker world, and especially if you’re starting out with a limited bankroll, freeroll poker tournaments might be just the thing you need. They offer a great way to practice online poker games, and they could even boost that bankroll too.

The concept is simple: freerolls let you play real money poker, but with no entry fee. That’s right – we provide the whole prize pool, and all you need to do is enter the tournament and play poker.

Our freerolls offer either cash prizes or tickets to a bigger tournament that we’re hosting. And we’ve added weekly freeroll tournaments to certain Rewards members. Each type of freeroll tournament offers you a chance to win, risk-free.

Speaking of free things that rock, make sure you download the poker software to get in on the freeroll action.

Monster Stack Tournaments

These tournaments live up to their name: huge stacks are available at the beginning of every event, which means you can stay in the game longer. 

Monster Stacks let you play poker online for money – lots of it. They’re a great way to have fun at the tables, whether you’re a recreational player or an expert.

Monster Stack Poker Tournaments

There are multiple events per day, and we run the Monster Stack series for at least a few months every year. Buy-ins range from small to large to suit every player, from weekend warriors to high rollers. 

It all adds up to huge online poker action with stacks and prize pools to match.

Poker Tournament Rules

Since we’re dealing with a ton of players from all over the planet, we do need to make sure we keep the games flowing at all times. So there are rules. Not a ton, but just keep in mind a few of the main ones.

Most importantly, the blinds increase after a certain amount of time. This is to make sure players who aren’t playing get eliminated. This keeps things moving for everyone, and helps make sure the playing experience at Ignition is a great one. 

Antes are also part of our online poker rules. Each player has to contribute some small number of chips to the pot at certain levels, in order to keep the pot size nice and juicy. This depends on the tournament so be sure to read the rules to avoid surprises.

Interested in learning about – and avoiding – things like ratholing, whipsawing, chip dumping and more? Most online poker sites have the same basic set of rules, and you can check out Ignition’s full list of house rules here

The overall idea? You will never run out of great tournaments to choose from at Ignition, so whether it’s a multi-million dollar Texas Hold’em tournament, a fun freeroll or a speedy Sit-and-Go, you’ve got the goods to play poker online anytime.
