PokerStars Rolls Out Spin & Go Max Tournaments

Publish: 16.08.2017

There is a huge reason why Amaya – now The Stars Group – owned international poker room PokerStars is the biggest and most popular online operator in the world.

It’s simple. Just as competition thinks it’s made enough of an effort to catch up with PokerStars, this company casually unrolls a feature, facility or simply a stunt that goes to dazzle everyone around it.

Spin & Go Max

Such is the case with the most recent addition to PokerStars offering – Spin & Go Max Tournaments, a format which offers a new edge to its regular Spin & Go variant with a couple of notable variations.

The idea behind it is to avoid the predictability of the three-player format where winner takes it all and to present players with a facility in which each online poker game can vary from one to the next.

The Spin & Go Max is set to mix all of the features we got used to with the regular Spin & Go – three-handed short-stack plays with turbo blind levels. The newest version of this tournament comes with five most notable changes which are as follows:

  • Player Spinner
  • Triple Prize Spinner
  • Hand Countdown
  • All-In Finale
  • Risk or Reward

To put it as simple as possible, the range of participating players vary from three to eight with a spinner determining the number at random at the beginning of each game. Three potential prizes will be revealed to players before the dealing starts and the winner will have the ability to choose one at the end.

Games are intended to end quickly as there will be a set number of hands per game. This number will be based on the number of players and the prize sizes. The hand counter will be in place and once it hits zero all players will have to go all-in in an All-In finale.

In addition to a prize a winner gets to choose, PokerStars will offer a guaranteed cash-out option which is definitely something to think about.
