PokerStars Grand Tour

PokerStars has launched its Grand Tour feature, a new take on the site’s popular Spin & Go tournaments. Embark on the Grand Tour journey and you could be padding your bankroll with some truly massive prizes. Keep reading to learn more.

What is the PokerStars Grand Tour?

The Grand Tour is a progressive KO (PKO) tournament that’s split into several stages called sprints. The finish line is linked to the bounty value on your head. You start the Grand Tour at any stage you wish and there are six buy-in levels to choose from.

  • $1
  • $2
  • $5
  • $12
  • $25
  • $60

Your goal is to get your own bounty above $100 by the end of a sprint. The buy-in, minus the 10% rake, represents your progress on the Grand Tour and your total bounty value. Finish the sprint with a bounty value of $100 or more and you win your own bounty value plus any additional bounties you’ve accumulated during the sprints you’ve completed.

Each sprint is played on a four-handed sit & go hyper turbo PKO tournament where you’re matched with opponents who have similar bounty values at registration. The tournaments play out like a traditional PKO except there is a twist, a twist that can see each bounty you win become massive.

You pocket part of your opponent’s bounty immediately after you bust them from the tournament. This goes on your head. The remainder of the bounty amount is then multiplied between 1x and 6,000x depending on the size of the bounty in play.

When the average bounty is between $0.90 and $10.80, 50% of your eliminated foe’s bounty goes on your head and 25% goes into your pocket after it’s random multiplier. This changes slightly when the average bounty is $10.81 and above. In this instance, 60% goes on your head and 20% is multiplied by a random factor before hitting your account.
