The colourful world of Spin & Go/Jackpot Tournaments
Spin & Go tournaments offer a fast-paced, unique poker format that provides players with the opportunity to win big. First launched on the PokerStars platform, this format has increased in popularity and is now a part of the staple diet with every major online poker provider. The payout structure varies from room to room, but the principle remains the same.
A tournament starts as soon as three players have registered. The prize pool is determined by a random number generator and can have a prize multiplier between 2 and 10,000. Again, these vary by the poker room, but the potential gains are substantial across the board, and it’s not unusual to see life-changing sums being won. All tournaments adopt the super turbo format, so with games taking literally minutes, you can expect a fun-filled poker session.
Why are these tournaments so popular?
With the turbo structure and the chance to win thousands in cool, hard cash in just a few minutes, Spin & Go attracts many recreational players looking for the chance of a quick win. Everyone can try their luck, and the high prizes guarantee a thrilling ride. In fact, no other format generates as much traffic as Spin & Go Jackpot tournies. At iPoker and PartyPoker you can find 24/7 traffic at all buy-in levels!
While there will of course be regular seasoned players concentrating on these games, compared with other formats you’ll find that the sheer volume of recreational players makes Spin & Go tournaments an ‘easier’ playing environment, albeit a competitive one even at the lower buy-in levels. Indeed, you can eke out a very decent profit without venturing into the higher level tournaments while still being in with a chance of massive payouts!
What is the variance?
The very structural nature of the super turbo format, combined with the looser dynamic created by the number of ‘fun’ players is bound to result in higher variance than usual. Consequently, be prepared for some big swings (50+ buy-ins, for example, is quite possible), so that means making sure your bankroll can sustain such bad runs. With this in mind, we recommend not playing too many tables at the same time – even experienced regulars tend to concentrate on only two or three.
How important is Rakeback?
Rakeback helps in making these tournaments as profitable as possible. The speed of the games adds to the volume and in turn generates a lot of rake in a short amount of time, so securing a juicy Rakeback deal is a must! Depending on the poker room, YourPokerDream offers you up to 80% rakeback!
