Spin and Go Flash Launches at PokerStars

  • New Spin & Go Flash offers faster-paced tournaments
  • 1-minute levels and starting stacks of 500 chips
  • Randomised prize pools are available, allowing players to win up to 1000x their buy-in

Online poker tournaments are full of fun and excitement, but sometimes they can drag on for a bit too long. For players that want a faster tournament experience, PokerStars has a solution with the new Spin & Go Flash format.

Spin & Go Flash tournaments are faster than the average Spin & Go with smaller starting stacks and quicker levels. So, you can vie for amazing jackpots in just a few minutes.

About Spin & Gos

If you’re not familiar with Spin & Gos, they are fun, fast-paced tournaments that are exclusive to PokerStars. Players join three-seat tables and the tournament rakes place in a hyper-turbo format where levels are three minutes along.

Buy-ins start at a just $1 and go all the way up to $25. The prize pool is randomly drawn, and the first-place payout can be anywhere from two-times to 1000-times your buy-in. Second and third place players also receive 8% to 10% of the prize pool, so players don’t leave the table empty-handed.

How Spin & Go Flash Kicks Things Up a Notch

In the newly introduced Spin & Go Flash tournaments, everything goes much faster. You begin with a smaller stack than in the usual Spin & Go games (300 chips versus 500 chips) and levels are just one-minute long. Everything else is the same, so you’re paying the same rake and getting the same payouts as in the original Spin & Gos.

Take a look at the trailer here:

The is the first new addition to the PokerStars offering since the site added 6+ Hold’em games in July. Also known as short-deck poker, the game is played with a smaller deck of cards. All of the cards between 2 and 5 are removed from the deck. The variation has become incredibly popular at PokerStars, and it’s great to see that the site continues to add new games for players to enjoy.

If you like fast-paced action, you can also play Zoom Poker. This is PokerStars’ fast-fold variant, where you’re moved to a new table every time you fold or win a hand. You can play over 100 hands per hour, which allows you to build your bankroll quicker.
