This is a discussion on Spin and go within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; Hello friends. I have played over 1000 spin and go and the highest prize was $ 25. Who else has it happened to?
What kind of buy-ins did you play ? And in which poker room ?
As for me I noticed that on Pokerstarts quite small multipliers for spins at least which I played. And sometimes even you get as a prize the same amount as a buy-in. It drives me crazy. And I never had multiplier more than 4x. After some bad experience I started to play spins in other poker rooms where I get much higher prizes with the same buyins
Spin and go on Pokerstars are a hit and miss for me. You'll be lucky to get a $1 despite the lure tried to make you think, you're chances are high to get anywhere near something worth winning.
They're quick and instant. That's their only benefit.
I too must have exceeded a thousand spin and Go play. the most expensive prize I ever played was $ 60 and of course I didn't win it. but it's been a while since I played it because even if it's one of my favorite formats. I am no longer assertive enough nor calm enough to support the effect of variance on my game. moreover I know that I would never have the chance to find a multiplier which correspond to my hopes. no matter how many spin and Go I can play.
