PokerStars launches Spin & Go Games

30 Sep 2014

(PRESS RELEASE) -- PokerStars today launched an exciting, fast-paced poker format called Spin & Go, which gives players of all levels the chance to win up to $30,000 in a matter of minutes.

The game has been a big hit with Spanish, Italian and French players, having been launched in these segregated markets earlier in the year, and now it’s being rolled out to players from across the world on

Spin & Go takes the form of a three-handed hyper-turbo Sit & Go tournament (500 chips, 3-minute levels) that begins with players selecting a $1, $3, $7, $15 or $30 game from a lobby screen. Once 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.

If the highest jackpot prize occurs in the top three tiers of buy-ins, second and third place each get 10% of the prize pool on top, meaning 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. The probability of each prize pool occurring varies slightly depending on the buy-in level, and can be viewed in full here:

Team PokerStars Pro, Jonathan Duhamel, said: “Spin & Go is great for so 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. 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!”
