Jack Poker Big Bang Sunday
Jack Poker is a relatively new site and one that not everyone will be aware of yet, but we think that may change over the next year or two. Jack Poker launched in 2021 and already it has around 2,500 players online at peaks times and over 1,000 connected at most other times. The product range is a little sparser than the bigger sites, but they have the core products of cash games, tournaments and spins and a pretty decent rewards program.

Their tournament offering is what i’m going to talk about today. It’s not a very busy schedule, you won’t find 50 tournaments in play at the same time, you probably won’t even find 10 running together at any one point, but you will find a lot of overlays. Jack Poker typically has one tournament starting every 30 minutes, on the hour or the half hour and they all have late reg, ranging in length from 30 minutes to two hours for most mtts. 

There are vanilla tournaments and PKOs, which they call Jack Hunters. Unsurprisingly, a lot of the regular tournaments include “Jack” in the name, such as the Big Jack, the Mini Jack and the Jack Bonus Bonanza. Regardless of the name, there’s a high chance of overlay in almost every tournament, especially on Sundays, where the guarantees are higher. 

Jack Poker Sunday Tournaments

Like most online poker sites, Jack Poker has a Sunday schedule of special tournaments with bigger guarantees than the rest of the week. Here is the schedule:

Big Bang Sunday - New Monthly Tournament

On Sunday 11th February a new monthly tournament is being added to the Sunday schedule. Its a $30 freezeout ($27+$3) called Big Bang Sunday, with a $30,000 guarantee. It starts at 4pm (UK time) and has 2 hours and 40 mins of late registration, which means that last entry will be just before 6.40pm (UK).  

The tournament requires 1,112 entries to meet the guarantee and all the evidence suggest that they won’t get anywhere near this, potentially creating a significant overlay. Regular $30 mtts on Jack Poker struggle to make triple figure entries and the only tournaments which get over 500 entries are those with $5 buy-ins. 

There are $5 satellites running all week, several times per day, that award tickets to the Big Bang Sunday, so even if $30 is beyond your usual buy-in, there is a cheaper way in.

From March 2024 onwards, Big Bang Sunday will run on the first Sunday of each month, with $5 satellites and freeroll satellites running throughout the preceding month on Jack Poker.

New Account Bonuses

If you have not yet opened an account with Jack Poker, they have a pretty decent bonus offer that includes spinning a bonus wheel prior to making your initial deposit. The size of your bonus will depend on how lucky you are when spinning the wheel, ranging from 30% to a massive 1000%. You’ll also get a bunch of free tournament tickets and can earn additional bonuses of up to $600 by completing various challenges with Jack Poker’s new player quest promotion.

To take advantage of this, use the exclusive PokerWired bonus code WIRED when signing up to Jack Poker.
