It’s no secret that many poker sites and networks finds inspiration from Pokerstars for new products and how to improve their poker service. Pokerstars is by far the biggest site in the world and amongst the most innovative as well, making it the obvious choice to learn from.
The Winning Poker Network announced today that they have created their own version of Pokerstars “Spin and Go”, which is a jackpot Sit n Go format. Winning Poker Network’s version is known as “Jackpot Poker” and differs in some areas from Pokerstars’ product.
The concept is very similar as the players pays a buy-in and then has a chance to win up to $25,000 for only a $10 investment. Three players will be battling it out for the prize that can vary from two buy-ins and up to 2,500 times the buy-in.
The game is a turbo game where each player receives 500 in chips, which means that the games will almost always be over in five minutes or less, giving players a chance to win their share of $25,000 in just a few moments.
The idea has been integrated to boost traffic in the Winning Poker Network, charging lower rake overall for Sit n Go’s than even Pokerstars does. Furthermore the Jackpot Poker games even counts towards the network promotions, so there’s a decent amount of value in the games.
