Natural8 Presents Battle Royale Promotion With Massive Prizes


A brand new SNG format Battle Royale has launched on Natural8, Asia’s largest online poker room. Battle Royale combines fast-fold action, shootouts and progressive knockout bounties across three different stages, and players have to defeat opponents to score cash prizes.

Battle Royale Highlights

  • 100-player SNG format with three stages
  • $0.25, $1, $3, and $10 buy-ins
  • Progressive Knockout (PKO) action
  • 10% of the field will earn a portion of the cash prize pool
  • Very modest rake of 4% on the lowest possible buy-in and 5% on all stakes thereafter

Battle Royale Stages

  • Stage 1: Fast fold SNG pool plays down to 50 survivors
  • Stage 2: Ten five-handed shootout tables with all-in mode after 15 minutes
  • Stage 3: Ten-handed Final Table as regular knockout format with 5-minute chess-clock

Stage 1 – Feel the Rush
Fast-fold has been available for several years now on Natural8, but was limited to Rush & Cash pools for cash game players. This will change with Battle Royale, as the first stage will feature six-handed MTT action with a maximum of 100 entries. The clock will be running, with an allowance of 15 minutes for the first stage to conclude.

If the clock reaches zero upon completion of the last hand and there are still more than 50 players in contention, all those outside of the top 50 will be eliminated. In the case of a tie, the number of kills (opponents eliminated) and hands played will determine the final ranking.

Bounties of players who fail to make the cut (without being knocked out by another player) will be added to the remaining prize pool.

Stage 2 – Shootout
With 50 players remaining, ten shootout tables will be drawn at random and chip stacks of the first stage will be carried over. Each table plays down to a winner, with a 15-minute timer in place. If more than one player remains after the clock has reached zero, the SNG enters an automatic all-in mode until just one contender remains.

Stage 3 – Final Table
With ten players remaining, the game turns into a regular ten-handed MTT final table. Players will also be able to select their seats, although this is not done in order of chips, but by how fast survivors lock up their seats on the final table.

The chess clock will be in place, and all players will receive a maximum of five minutes extra time to act. Instead of each level featuring a certain time limit, the final table will use a specific number of hands to determine when the blinds will go up.

All ten finalists will secure a portion of the cash prize pool, and with 90% of the field already eliminated at this stage, sizable PKO bounties will be up for grabs. No deal will be possible, and the top two finishers will earn near-identical cash prizes. It will be down to the bounties to boost players’ bankrolls.

With games predicted to run for approximately only one hour each, this game type will appeal especially to recreational players.

Weekly $15,000 Leaderboard

Battle Royale will also feature weekly leaderboards for each buy-in level. Players will get one point for each game they participate in, regardless of their final standing. 1.5x points will be credited for each completed game during Happy Hour (06:00 – 07:59 UTC).

A total of $15,000 will be up for grabs every week in June across these stakes:

  • $10 buy-in: $8,270 in weekly prizes; up to 50 spots paid
  • $3 buy-in: $3,945 in weekly prizes; up to 100 spots paid
  • $1 buy-in: $2,160 in weekly prizes; up to 100 spots paid
  • $0.25 buy-in: $672 in weekly prizes; up to 200 spots paid
