Another exciting addition to the GGPoker client is finally here with the release of the exciting three-handed Jackpot Sit and Go 'Spin & Gold!'
As part of the Spin & Gold announcement, GGPoker have announced that to enhance the game experience, poker players will now be able to squeeze the river card in order to increase the tension in certain scenarios.
According to GGPoker, both the favorite and the underdog with outs remaining will have a countdown to enable the squeeze feature and squeeze their river card.
Favorites will have eight seconds whether underdogs will have ten seconds to decide whether they want to ramp up the tension by sweating the final board card.
The squeeze option will only be available in Hold'em, Omaha, Rush & Cash and Chinese Hold'em when the pot is over 100 big blinds. In Short Deck, the pot must be over 100 antes, and in tournaments and the new Spin & Gold format, there must be an all-in situation with one player's stack is 0.

GGPoker’s Spin & Gold Twist: Challenges
GGPoker always likes to put its own twist on products it launches to make them unique to the site and Spin & Gold are no different.
Players can earn extra cashback on their Spin & Gold play by completing special challenges.
These challenges are known as mining gold. You start the challenge with a simple mouse click and are greeted with a screen asking if you are going to play for 1 hour, 2 hours, 3 hours, 5 hours, or 8 hours. Another screen loads where you can choose from one of six challenges, each increasing in difficulty in relation to the number of Spin & Gold tournaments needed to mine gold.
The challenge we saw challenged players to mine between 700 and 27,000 gold for cash rewards ranging from $1.60 up to $120.
Gold is earned at different rates depending on the Spin & Gold tournament’s buy-in and your finishing position, with a maximum of 750 gold possible from one tournament.
|Buy-in||1st place||2nd place||3rd place|
|$50||750 Gold||500 Gold||250 Gold|
|$20||300 Gold||200 Gold||100 Gold|
|$5||75 Gold||50 Gold||25 Gold|
