1 in a million. That's the odds of hitting the jackpot in a Blast SNG on 888Poker Ontario. Despite that longshot, this lucky player "Starplayer50" has walked away with $140,000 after claiming victory over his two opponents in the jackpot format SNG.

BLAST is a 3-handed, Super-turbo Texas Hold’em Sit & Go. To add to the suspense, the prize pool of each of these super-turbo Texas Hold'em sit & go games remains a mystery until the game begins. It is determined based on a draw that takes place at the beginning of each BLAST tournament and varies between two and 10,000 times the buy-in. The blind structure and prize pool distribution of each game is determined according to the multiplier that is assigned to the BLAST Sit & Go.

For Ontario, 888Poker offers Blast games at the $0.10 $1, $5 and $20 level. The vast majority of these pay out 2x or 3x the buy-in but the less frequent multipliers consist of 5x, 10x, 25x, and 100x

The runners up, "lizzyroyal11" and "brewerybabe1" walked away with $40,000 and $20,000 respectively.
