Posted on by Rachel

PokerStars RakeTheRake 2

In celebration of their “December Festival,” PokerStars rolled out a $5 buy-in, $1m Spin and Go.

PokerStars’ version is called ‘Spin & Gos,’ and they play very much like any other turbo SNG – with the big exception being how prizes are dished out in these winner-take-all tourneys.

Titan Twister Poker

In a regular sit and go with eight or nine players, the winner can usually count on taking 50% of the prize pool. So if an SNG buy-in was $10 and eight players entered, the winner would collect $40. This is certainly a nice prize, but what if you could win much, much more than this?
