PokerStars.com, an Amaya Inc. brand launched Spin & Go Omaha tournaments using the hugely popular Spin & Go format.
Severin Rasset, Director of Poker Operations and Innovation:
Spin & Go Omaha tournaments are fast-paced, three-max Hyper Turbo Sit & Go tournaments, offering 500 chip starting stacks, in which each tournament has a randomly drawn prize pool that will bring between two and 10,000 times the player’s buy-in. Spin & Go Omaha tournaments will be available to play at $1, $3, $7 and $15 stakes. Players will get four hold cards and they must use two of these with three of the cards from the board to make their poker hand. Spin & Go Omaha tournaments will be played as Pot Limit.
Team PokerStars Pro Lex Veldhuis:
In order to celebrate the launch, an exclusive $5 Spin & Go Omaha qualifier will reward winners with a $10 cash prize or entry to either the $2,100 (high), $215 (medium), $27 (low) level of SCOOP Event 5. Players who win entry to the $27 (low) level may unregister and instead use the ticket in any $27 SCOOP event or SCOOP satellite. Nevertheless, players who win a $215 (medium) and $2,100 (high) seat for the first time will be required to play SCOOP Event 5 Pot Limit Omaha on 7 May. For any subsequent medium or high level wins, players will get equivalent amounts of tournament dollars.
