PokerStars on Wednesday launched a new action-packed version of its popular lottery-style Spin & Go tournaments. Spin & Go Max offers players more more variety and more ways to maximize winnings, with payouts as high as 10,000 times your buy-in.
The announcement comes only a few months after PokerStars introduced Omaha Spin & Go tournaments. The new 'Max' variant will have a very different feel with five new elements:
- Player Spinner: Every Spin & Go Max game begins with a spin to determine the number of players, from three to eight.
- Triple Prize Spinner: At the start of the tournament players will be shown the three prizes options that they’re playing for. The eventual winner will then have to pick from those three prizes randomly, shown face down.
- Hand Countdown: Spin & Go Max games will have a fixed number of hands based upon the size of the prize and the number of players.
- Automatic All-In finale: After the predetermined number of hands has been played, all remaining players will automatically go all-in until there is a winner.
- Risk/Reward Option: No matter how you win the Spin & Go Max, you'll get the chance to pick your prize. The original three prize options will appear at the end of each tournament. However, on some occasions, players will be offered a 'Cash Out' option. Do you take a guaranteed payout or gamble on the one-in-three shot at the top prize?
Spin & Go Max buy-ins will be $1, $3, $7 and $15, with winners guaranteed to win at least double their buy-in. The biggest prize awarded for the $1 games will be $10,000, while the jackpot prize for $15 contests will award $150,000.
“Spin & Go Max is the next level of the Spin & Go format and delivers more excitement and a great immersive experience through new graphics and more chances for winning moments,” said Severin Rasset, Director Of Poker Innovation and Operations at PokerStars.
