Try our fast & thrilling poker format - Spin & Go

PokerStars Spin & Go is the exciting poker format that anyone can play – and you can now win up to 2,000 times your buy-in.

Each Spin & Go has a randomly assigned prize pool, and gives you the chance to win up to $50,000 in minutes.

How Spin & Go’s work

Spin & Go's are fast-paced, 3-Max Hyper-Turbo Sit & Go tournaments, featuring 500 chip starting stacks. Buy-ins range from $1 to $25, and each tournament has a randomly drawn prize pool that will award between two and 2,000 times your buy-in.

To get started, select your buy-in and the number of simultaneous tournaments you want to play, and then click the ‘Register’ button. It's that easy.

Once you have chosen your buy-in and the number of games you want to play, you will be seated at a tournament table until two other players have registered.

As soon as a third player registers for your Spin & Go tournament, there will be a random draw to decide how big the tournament prize pool will be.

The spinner in the center of the table will display the prize pool to all players.

The first hand will then be dealt and the Spin & Go prize will be up for grabs.

Example: You register for a $2 Spin & Go. Once two other players have registered the prize pool will be randomly drawn and announced to players before the first card is dealt. The first-place prize will be multiplied between two and 2,000 times your buy-in, meaning you could turn $2 into between $4 and $4,000.

7% of the prize pool goes to rake.

You will not leave the table empty-handed if your Spin & Go randomly draws one of the three highest prize tiers but you do not win the tourney. In addition to the first-place prize, the second and third-place finishers will also receive 8-10% of the total prize payout.


We offer Spin & Go's in four different buy-ins: $1, $2, $5,$10 and $25. Regardless of the buy-in, players will start the tournament with 500 chips and will play three-minute levels.

Spin & Go – Additional Information:

  • Deal-making is not possible.
  • All Spin & Go's are winner-takes-all format except for the top three tiered prizes which, in addition to the first prize, will also award 2nd and 3rd place with 8-10% of the total prize payout. For example, if a $10 Spin & Go hits the biggest prize tier the winner of that Spin & Go will get 2,000 times their buy-in, $20,000, and 2nd and 3rd place will each get $2,000. The total prize pool would be $24,000.
