May 1, 2019 SwC Poker, the leading Bitcoin poker platform, has successfully held the “BIG BTC” Bitcoin poker tournament for the fourth consecutive month. The last Sunday of each month brings a poker tournament with a guaranteed prize pool of 1,000,000 chips (1 BTC) and a buy-in of 10,000 chips (0.01 BTC). At SwC Poker 1,000,000 chips = 1 Bitcoin. This ratio never changes. Dividing a Bitcoin into 1,000,000 pieces allows the site to spread a full range of stakes.
SwC Poker has built a reputation of fast payouts, facilitating cashouts in mere hours. When the biggest bitcoin poker tournament of the month finishes, players that cash in the event know they can get paid in mere hours due to the efficiencies of using “No banking, only bitcoin.”
104 Players Enter. ‘Austria’ Wins.
When the dust settled, 15 players walked away with a share of the massive 1,000,000 chip prize pool. SwC player ‘Austria’ captured the biggest share, 260,000 chips, or 0.26 BTC. Runner-up ‘PaulC’ claimed second place for 180,000 chips while ‘MintyTaro’ came in third for 125,000 chips. Among the top finishers were long-time SwC Poker players and new members alike. Several of the 15 lucky winners earned their BIG BTC seat from satellites and freerolls.
The next BIG BTC will run May 26, 2019
Once again SwC Poker will guarantee a 1,000,000 chip prize pool. The 10,000 chip buy-in can be paid directly, but there are many guaranteed chances to satellite into the game for as little as 100 chips. Players with sufficient krill also have multiple chances to win a seat in freerolls. Part of creating a sustainable bitcoin poker economy is running promotions that players can take advantage of and get a chance at a big score for free.
Bad Beat Jackpot Reaches Record Levels
The Bad Beat Jackpot (BBJ) at SwC Poker has grown considerably in the past month due to increased play. As of this press release, the jackpot has grown to over 1,600,000 chips. The BBJ is hit when a player loses a hand of no-limit hold’em with aces full of tens or better using both hole cards. SwC Poker used a low hand requirement so that players would feel the thrill of a jackpot and win more often. Due to variance, the pot has grown bigger than ever before! Because SwC Poker is the most player-friendly poker platform, no additional rake is taken from the BBJ tables. One more way SwC Poker offers the lowest rake
