Players can support their preferred teams in unique tournaments, with buy-ins modified by match odds
GGPoker today announces a new tournament type – Bet & Go – which will bring the excitement of supporting your favorite sports teams onto the digital felt.
Each Bet & Go tournament is matched to an upcoming sporting event, such as a football or tennis match. Two buy-in options will be available per tournament, one for either opponent in the upcoming event, with each buy-in discounted by each opponent’s odds of winning. For example, players supporting big favorites will have smaller discounts applied to their buy-in than available to players who choose to support the underdogs.
Another unique Bet & Go twist is that once the sporting event ends, the surviving players that registered in support of the losing team are automatically knocked out of the poker tournament! Luckily, all players knocked out at this point can choose to rebuy at a non-discounted buy-in.
The very first Bet & Go tournament will be held on Sunday, November 20, at the same time as the Qatar vs Ecuador football game, with additional tournaments scheduled for each football match in the following days and weeks.
“With Bet & Go tournaments, GGPoker players can support their favorite teams or simply take advantage of the biggest discounts and cheer for the underdogs,” said Daniel Negreanu, GGPoker Global Ambassador. “Watch your team win the event and you’ll be free to continue to play your way into the money; it could be win-win for you!”
