Spin n Gos
One of the latest innovations from PokerStars is the Spin n Go tournament. These three-handed events allow you to win up a massive prize each time out, as long as the pre-tournament spin of the wheel goes your way. Each tournament has a randomly assigned prize pool ranging from 2X to 3000X the buy-in that you won’t know about until you buy-in.
Similar to Full Tilt Poker’s Rush Poker, Zoom is a fast-paced game that means never having to wait for another hand. As soon you as fold your hold (or choose fold as a pre-selected action) you’re moved to a new table and dealt another hand. The game moves quickly and makes sure there is never a dull moment. It’s currently available for both No Limit Hold’em and Pot Limit Omaha.
