888poker’s The Festival Online Blazing into Final Weekend – Going strong into its final weekend of action, The Festival Online is 15% ahead of guarantees There have now been a total of 18 events in 888poker’s The Festival Online (TFO) and the operator will be smiling at the results. So far, every game has met or exceeded the posted guarantee, with the entire series coming in at more than 15% above the promised numbers.
TFO from 888poker got underway on July 7 with a $109 Opening Event that equaled its guarantee exactly. From there, things only got better as every event so far ended up with at least a bit more than promised in the prize pool.
There have been just over $500k of guarantees played out over the 18 games so far, and, in total, the games have collected $583,820. That means the operator is almost $80k ahead of its expected guarantees of $504,000.
The biggest game of the series is still the $109 Texas Progressive KO that saw 1,072 entries for a prize pool of $107,200. That was just over 7% above the $100k guarantee and has represented the biggest field and the biggest prize pool across the series.
However, there is now a new title holder for the biggest guarantee increase of the series. That honor was previously held by the $55 PLO Deepstack game that guaranteed $2,000 and collected $4,200 with 84 entries, but the $22 PLO Lowroller this week drew 160 entries for a prize pool of $3,200, 113% above the guarantee of $1,500.
