Omaha Spin & Gos Arrive on PokerStars

Share On

There aren't many poker games with more action in them than Pot-Limit Omaha.

And there aren't any more formats more exhilarating than the 3-person, hyper-turbo Spin & Gos with a potential 10,000x payout looming behind every spin.

Put the two together and ... well, you get the idea.

3-Handed Hyper Turbos with Big Money On the Line

Already one of the most popular formats in any variant of poker on any poker site, Spin & Gos have been a game changer since they were introduced back in 2014.

If you've never played one the concept is pretty simple:

Spin & Gos are 3-handed “Hyper Turbo” events that begin as soon as three players have bought in. Buy-in levels are 25 cents, $1, $3, $5, $7, $15, $30, $60 and $100.

Before the sng begins, a wheel spins to determine the total prize pool for each tournament. Possible multipliers are 2x, 4x, 6x, 10x, 25x, 120x, 240x or 12,000x. Each player stars out with 500 chips with blinds at 10/20. They go up every three minutes until a winner is determined. 

if you're doing the math, you can see that can really add up to a huge payout for a very minimal investment in a very short period of time. In fact, dozens of people have become instant millionaires from playing Spin & Gos.

Most Spin & Gos play out as 'winner-take-all' but at the highest multiplier levels 10% of the prize is awarded to each of the 2nd- and 3rd-place finishers.

Now in Omaha!

Spin & Gos have made such an impact on PokerStars in fact they are also now one of the most popular ways to qualify for the PokerStars Live events.

Running at specific intervals and buy-in levels prior to each PokerStars Championships series, players can win all-inclusive packages to play major live events for a fraction of the cost.

Special promos also run frequently where just a $5 buy-in could win you a $1 million first-place prize.

With such a popular product it was inevitbale it would continue to expand its range across the PokerStars platform and now, if you're an Omaha player, they're available for you, too.

Omaha Spin & Gos are now currently available in the PokerStars client at $1, $3, $7 and $15 buy-in levels with the same set up as the No-Limit Hold'em events: 500 chips to start, 3-minute blind levels and a randomly drawn prize pool worth between 2x and 10,000x times your buy-in.

To celebrate the launch $5 Spin & Go Omaha qualifiers are running that will award winners either a $10 cash prize or entry to the $2,100 (high), $215 (medium), $27 (low) level of SCOOP Event 5 Pot Limit Omaha on May 7.
