Spin & Go at PokerStars

Tuesday, 30 September 2014

PokerStars is giving its players the chance to win up to $30,000 in the space of a few minutes courtesy of its new Spin & Go tables.

Spin & Go games take place at three-handed hyper-turbo Sit & Go tournaments with buy-ins of $1, $3, $7, $15 or $30. Players starts with 500 chips with the clock set at 3-minutes. Once all three players are registered to a game, they watch the spinning numbers on screen to see how much the prize pool for that game will be worth – anywhere from 2x the buy-in to 1000x the buy-in.

The buy-ins and their potential prize pools can be seen below:

$1 - $1,000
$3 - $3,000
$7 - $7,000*
$15 - $15,000*
$30 - $30,000*

If the highest jackpot prize occurs at the $7, $15 and $30 levels, 10% of the prize pool will be added on top to the second and third place finishers. That will take the overall prize pools will be $8,400, $18,000, and $36,000 respectively.

Within each different buy-in level there are eight possible different multipliers that will determine the prize pool, as follows: 2x, 4x, 6x, 10x, 25x, 100x, 200x, and 1000x.

“Spin & Go is great for so many reasons,” said Team PokerStars pro Jonathan Duhamel. “First, the game lasts just a few minutes, making it perfect for whenever you have some free time, and it’s ideal for mobile play. But the most attractive aspect is the lottery-style prize pool, which means you never know how much you’re going to be playing for. Having the chance to win thousands of dollars from just a few dollars is great, considering you only have to beat two players to win the lot!”
