The world's biggest poker site Pokerstars, rolled out their brand new “Spin and Go” concept sit n go's in their .com client yesterday, allowing players from non regulated markets to access the games for the very first time.
The concept has been picked up by some of the biggest operators in the world and is quite simple to understand. Three players pay a buy-in to play a three-handed sit n go and the Random Number Generator (RNG) will then decide what the prize pool should be, which can range from two buy-ins and up to 1,000 buy-ins.
The game play is hyper-turbo and players will only start with 500 in chips at a 10/20 level, with three minute blind levels. The game is full of action and with the chance of winning up to $30,000 for only $30, the game has been very popular with the recreational players in the regulated markets where it was launched first.
Should you be so lucky to end up in one of the jackpot sit n go's, then you can expect to win at least 10% of the prize pool as second and third place will be rewarded with 10% of the total prize pool while the first place finisher will take the entire jackpot prize pool.
“Spin and Go's are great for many reasons, 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,” he explained. “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.” Jonathan Duhamel, Team Pokerstars Player said in a press release.
“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,” Duhamel added.
