What are Spin & Go Poker tournaments?

Spin & Go Poker tournaments have a hyperturbo format in which a total of 3 players participate and it is one of the most profitable poker modalities that exist. Regardless of which buy-in you participate in, the prizes are extremely attractive.

How do Spin & Go Poker tournaments work?

In Spin & Go Poker tournaments, players have initial stacks of 500 chips. Depending on the game mode – if it is Spin & Go: Omaha, Stars Rewards Spin & Go, Spin & Go Hold’em…- the rules of the game can vary slightly from each other. For example, in the case of Omaha, each player receives four hand cards and must use a total of two in order to form their poker hand. However, in any case, the initial buy-in ranges from 0.25 cents to 250 euros, depending on the amount each player wants to invest. Everything will be in proportion to the amount that can be won according to the multiplier in the prize pool (from 2 to 12,000 times the initial buy-in value).

In this way, with an investment of 0.25 cents, a profit of 0.50 cents (if multiplied by 2) could be generated and up to 2,500 euros, if multiplied by 12,000.

When deciding how much to buy-in for, the odds of the game or the frequency will be taken into account. The frequency is something we should pay attention to when participating in any of the Spin & Go Poker modalities, since each version establishes its own values in the game’s algorithm. We recommend that you look at the lower frequencies, as the top 5 frequencies are always the same, regardless of the mode.

We give you an example so that you can understand it more easily:

Imagine you start a tournament at Spin & Go Hold’em for a 5 euro buy-in. The multiplier of the prize pool gives you a frequency of 464,888 out of a million for our 5 euros to be multiplied by 2. In case it is multiplied by 25, for example, the possibilities are 1,000 out of a million and as the multiplier value of the prize pool increases, the frequency is lower.

Spin & Go Poker jackpot distribution and multiplier

It is generated randomly, according to the game’s algorithm. The prize pool multiplier in any mode is always the same. Here we show you the figures by which the buy-in is multiplied at random:

Prize pool multiplier

In the last 5 levels the prizes are divided among the three players, with the champion player taking the most and the rest taking 10% of the total. However, in the rest of the levels, the winnings are full for the winner.

Duration of the blind levels in Spin & Go Poker

One of the common rules in any Spin & Go Poker mode is the duration of the blind levels. These depend on the multiplier of the prize pool, which is known at the beginning as the accumulated prize. So, depending on the multiplier, we find the following times:
