Spin & Go’s on PokerStars



ONCHAN, Isle of Man – October 9, 2014 – PokerStars last week launched Spin & Go games – fast-paced tournaments with lottery-style prize pools – that have proved an instant hit, with more than 7.5 million games played already. To celebrate the launch, PokerStars today announced a special period of promotions, dubbed ‘Spin & Go Week’, which will run from October 9-19 with the following activities:

  1. Spin & Go Daily Challenge – complete a new daily challenge each day, accessible through a player’s Spin & Go Daily Challenge window in the PokerStars client or Mobile App, for the chance to win free Spin & Go tickets and cash prizes. Go to http://psta.rs/1B6dfir for more details.
  2. Reload Deposit Bonus – players who deposit $25 or more by 23.59 ET on October 19 using bonus code ‘SPIN5’ instantly get five free Spin & Go tickets (4 x $1 tickets and 1 x $3 ticket). Click http://psta.rs/1B6dfir for more information.

In addition there is a Spin & Go First Deposit Bonus on offer for players that make a first deposit of $20 or more using bonus code ‘FREE20’ up until 23.59 ET on October 26. Players receive $20 in bonus cash plus a bundle of Spin & Go tickets, which are awarded – like the Spin & Go prize pool – on a random basis, from 10 x $1 tickets, 20 x $1 tickets and so on, up to 50 x $1 tickets. For more details, check out http://psta.rs/1o1pg8l.


A Spin & Go is a three-handed hyper-turbo Sit & Go tournament (500 chips, 3-minute levels) that are available at $1, $3, $7, $15 or $30 buy-ins. 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.

The current available buy-in levels – and potential jackpot prize pools – are as follows:

Buy-in Jackpot prize
$1 $1,000
$3 $3,000
$7 $7,000
$15 $15,000
$30 $30,000

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. If the highest jackpot prize occurs in the top three tiers of multipliers, second and third place each get 10% of the prize pool on top.

The probability of each prize pool occurring varies slightly depending on the buy-in level, and can be viewed in full here: http://psta.rs/1qtubZK.
