Ignition Poker and Casino opens its doors to Australian players

In recent weeks, Ignition Casino and Poker has been making big moves. First, they announced an exciting venture into the Australian poker market. Then, they announced the schedule for their Super Million Poker Open, beginning Saturday, July 15.

With the Australia market in major flux due to changing laws that have left many poker providers in the lurch, Ignition is betting on its ability to fill a major hole in the market. As major players, including 888Poker and, possibly, PokerStars, leave Australia in search of simpler pastures, Ignition is making a grab for this lucrative market share.

Although they are currently only open to Americans, Ignition is one of the few iGaming companies that offers both online poker and casino games, making it one of the biggest sites in the world and incredibly popular among its American audience. Expanding to Australia will certainly bring a lot of business to a company that already averages over 1,000-2,000 cash game players during peak times. Thus far, Ignition seems unfazed by potential changes to Australia’s Interactive Gambling Act of 2001, which may include new gaming laws that could complicate their operations.

2017 Super Millions Poker Open guarantees $250M across 105 events 

Based on the recently released schedule, the Super Million Poker Open ($250M Guarantee) is shaping up to be an excellent online tournament series. With 105 events offered over the course of the schedule, players of all levels and interests should be able to find something they like. The series started on Saturday and offers buy-ins that range from $5.50 to $450, which should entice participation from an equally wide range of players.

Unlike many sites that frontload their series guarantees into a single main event, Ignition has split their guarantee quite well over multiple events, with a $250,000 guarantee for all events over the opening weekend and a $300,000 guarantee for their Main Event on Sunday, August 15. Starting at 5:03pm, this event has a $450 buy-in. Satellites for the more valuable events have already begun, with buy-ins starting at just $5.50. However, all of the events in the series are single entry, so if you win satellite seats into multiple events, only the first one will count.
