Windfall tournaments are TigerGaming's take on jackpot sit & go tournaments, where the prize pool is randomly determined before any of the entrants receive their cards. Most of the time, the prize pool is twice or three times the size of your buy-in, but it can be as much as 500 times if Lady Luck shines down on you. That means you could be playing for a $1,500 or $4,000 prize pool if you enter a $3 or $8 buy-in game, respectively.
