A Detailed Review Of The Satellite Qualifiers Available At iPoker’s Leading Site – Titan Poker
Quick Note for US Readers: Unfortunately Titan Poker is not US-Friendly, please check out our dedicated article on the best site for satellite qualifiers for information on satellite qualifiers at the top US facing sites.
iPoker is the poker network shared by some of the world’s biggest sports betting and casino brands. They pool together their players to offer a bigger and better selection of games and tournaments. Brands include William Hill, NetBet, Betfair and Paddy Power… The biggest single site is the mighty Titan Poker, whose loyalty schemes and focus on poker make this a great place to enjoy the famously easy games on the iPoker Network.
This article covers the satellite qualifiers at Titan, who have a cool 3-tier system which feeds into both the bigger online games and live events. What I like about this tiered approach is that players with smaller bankrolls have a real chance of getting a seat in the biggest games – a ‘rags to riches’ story is being played out every single week!
I’ll start with details of the tiered system, showing you how it works and your different options. Next I show you the variety of games you can qualify for at iPoker, including some big guaranteed prize pools. Finally a few notes on the many benefits of playing at Titan, including details of how SNG Planet readers can get $20 extra free cash on top of the normal 200% deposit bonus (bonus code = SNGPLANET).
iPoker Satellites - How The 3 Tier System Works At Titan Poker
The stages are numbered backwards (at least from my perspective!) at Titan Poker. You start with Stage 3, which are the cheapest games, which feed players into stage 2 qualifiers – which in turn feed the Stage 1 games which award the tickets to big online games or live event packages.
If you do not want to fight the crowds in the lower stage games (which start from just 10 cents + 1 cent fee!) then you are welcome to buy-in directly to any stage you want to. You get to choose the format, and can switch between them too. For example, you might win a Sit N Go stage 1 game, then choose a freezout (single buy-in) stage 2 and end up playing in a stage 1 rebuy!
You should take note of the speed of each game, a lot of satellites at Titan feature turbo blinds… these are fun games, though you need to stay active, since you can easily get left behind.
In addition to these 3 stage games there are ‘Supersatellites’ which are one-off qualifiers to some of the big online tournaments. You can also play the popular ‘Steps SNGs’ which feature 10 levels with ‘exit points’ at many of the popular tournament buy-in prices – including the €75 for the weekly Sunday guaranteed tournament.
All of these satellites are great value, with the big sports betting cross-over traffic keeping the games nice and easy.
iPoker Satellites – What Can You Qualify For At Titan Poker
There are 3 main categories of targets for your qualification efforts at Titan. The biggest are live events, then online events with the regular online tournaments third.
Live Event Satellites: These range from World Series Qualifiers, through to big international events like the Aussie Millions or Irish Open. Titan give away ‘packages’ to these events which include money for flights and expenses, hotel accommodation + your entry fee to the tournament itself.
Online Events Satellites: iPoker’s feature event is the ‘iPoker Online Poker Series’ or ‘iPOPS’ for short. This is a regular series of big money tournaments, which guarantees over a €1 million in prizes. The buy-ins are in the $215 to $530 range, and many players win their seats via satellites – which start from just a few dollars.
Regular Tournaments: You can win seats in the regular €10k, €15 and €25k guarantees, and even your place in the big Sunday €100k guarantees via satellite qualifiers. These run throughout the week and get very busy at the weekend.
