With limited options amidst the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and online poker booming across all markets, J88Poker is joining the bandwagon featuring its highly awaited J88PT Millionaire this coming 15-19 April, 2020. The series is set to go live on its very own platform with the most affordable yet high guarantee events. Players who are eager to grab this good valued opportunity are welcome to download their application compatible for Windows, Android or iOS on their main website https://j88poker.com/.
The line up of nine No Limit Hold’em events over the course of five days ensures a total guaranteed prize pool of US$ 240,000 with the highlight of the festival being the Main Event, which posts a US$ 100,000 guarantee alone and a modest US$88 buy-in. Buy-ins for the events range as low as US$ 5 for its Opening Event with a guarantee of US$ 5,000 to as much as US$ 250 for its High Roller Event with a total prize pool of US$ 50,000.
In addition to this, multiple daily satellites are scheduled throughout the five day period with mere buy-ins of US$ 0.5 to US$ 22. Rebuy and add-on options will also be available for most of the tournaments except for the Super Knock Out events which play under a recently added format to the platform.

Given the global health emergency situation and a majority of the population quarantined at the comfort of their homes, J88 Poker announced a month ago the cancellation of their live J88PT Philippine leg originally scheduled to be held from 24-29 March, 2020. The live series’ three key events were set to cover PHP 20 Million (~US$ 393,000) in combined prize pool guarantees and will ideally be set at a later date when the situation resolves. With low-cost entries and high cash prizes to be won, the Asian poker platform provides a great and accessible alternative for the meantime.
Founded only in October 2017, J88 Poker has been a fast-growing poker platform catering mostly to residents in the Asian region. The independent gaming operator offers multiple formats on its platform such as Hold’em, Short Deck, Big Ante Hold’em, Omaha, 5-card Omaha, All-in or Fold, Open-face Chinese poker (OFC) as well as Sit&Go and Knockout tournaments has held live and online festivals within the past two years. Gaining traction in the live tournament scene, J88Poker is seemingly on the rise with its continuous successes for the J88PT Series attracting various professional poker players across the world.
