PokerStars unveils a new Spin & Go game. PartyPoker’s grinder-friendly Gladiator promotion returns. Find these stories and more in the Tuesday Hit and Run.
New Omaha Version of Spin & Go Released
PokerStars rolled out Spin & Go Omaha today, joining the popular No Limit Hold’em version of the lottery style Sit & Go game. Players will now be able to join or observe Spin & Go Pot Limit Omaha tables with standard buy-in levels of $1, $3, $7 and $15. A $5 SCOOP Sit & Go is also available for a limited time in preparation for the upcoming Spring Championship of Online Poker.
Spin & Gos, which were introduced at PokerStars in 2014, are fast-paced three-handed SNGs that pay players a prize pool multiplier of 2x-12,000x the buy-in. The prizes are announced before the first hand is dealt and are paid in a winner-take-all format, except when drawing one of the three highest payment tiers.
Hold’em and Omaha Spin & Go games can be found under the “Spin & Go” tab in the PokerStars client.
– Despite a heavy recreational-player friendly focus over the last few years, PartyPoker is apparently still catering to high-volume players with the return of Gladiator. The promotion began its 20 day run on April 17th and will continue through May 7th. Players will receive cash bonuses and freeroll entries depending on the number of points earned per day.
