The Bounty Builder Format

PokerStars’ Bounty Builder format allows players to win money, without the need to spend hours playing, or trying to reach “the bubble“. Instead, each player has a bounty on them. When a player knocks out another player, they win the bounty for that player.

In that line of thoughts, one player may win their buy-in with a good hand or even double their prize money following a KO streak. Although there are no guarantees, Bounty Builder events make the games unique. Furthermore, the “Turbo element” boosts the speed for each game.

Furthermore, participants can also win from knocking out other players.

Additionally, players that may prefer higher level buy-ins can join 18 events at $11 buy-in. Furthermore, there will be 37 more events at the higher $22 buy-in. Looking at the 12 opening events alone, players have the chance to win more than $3.5 million in prize money.
