I played loads of them but mostly just for fun as it's quick... I've never heard of anyone being in a game where the max jackpot is on offer or even near it.... Always seems to be double or treble your buy in.

If you ever wondered if online poker is truly random then this is your answer.

I once played a $1 spin and go and prize was $100 but came second so no winnings 👎.

Pokers so random I had AA earlier and lost on a all in.been playing poker for over 15 years but never won anything really big.

Does any body make any money on spin and go? Poker stars
Maybe someone is making money. Maybe someone wins the lottery, or someone sometimes wins in the casino. But in my opinion such tournaments are just a game of bingo. Luck in such tournaments is significantly more important than the skill of the player.

I’ve only ever witnessed it once (well a big payout considering) in my own game where for a $5 spin and go it was $10 for 3rd $15 for 2nd and $125 for the winner, as for my opinion on spin and goes I think as paddyswarrior said they would be more for fun as they have a a lot and I mean a lot of luck involved, it’s literally a coin flip for the most part is my view as someone said it’s like playing a game of bingo

I live from poker playing only spins of $10 for two years. They are very profitable

Every spin tournament (whether is it 1.- or 100.- one for example) has everyone getting paid IF prizepool is atleast 25x ...

can you find out in more detail what percentage of wins you have, how many games you play on average per month and what is the average multiplier you get? I sometimes get carried away with this game and I can play 30 spins a day

I was playing an average of 60-80 games a day. Around 1500-2000 per month. Although, to be honest, you can put in twice the volume of what I did. I have never averaged multipliers, but I have played some x100 or x50.
Also I studied for a few months with a top school called SmartSpin. But you really don't need a lot of knowledge to be a winner in $2-$5. The average level of players is pretty low.

I had an average of 32-35% wins, but the average multiplier is less than 3, so I won every third game, but since the multiplier was below 3, I'm in the red constantly

You're just having a losing streak biased for the short term. Think about how many multipliers you need to get back to green and you will realize that it is not too much. Usually when the same thing happened to me of spending a long time in x2, then soon or later I would play ax3, x5, x10 or several in a row and I realized that the stress generated had not been worth it

I am not a disciplined player, I play without bankroll management, I can play $50 at the end of a spin in the evening when $500 is in the account, or play $10 when an amateur has $100 in the account, in a word:)

It seems to me that it is very difficult to make money in spin&go at a distance. There is a very high dispersion.

It cannot be true, cause if the prizepool was 100$ on the level of 1$ buy-in, the first grabs 80$, the second grabs 20$!

You do when you play with 1 to 10 percent of your bankroll. If you decide to take your last 5 dollars and put it on a spin and go...they'll probably make you lose in some way that will piss you off and make you want to either deposit more or quit playing on the site in general. Something I realised is the Money always goes to the ones with money... never the one who deserve it. So if buddys bankroll is larger chances are their going to give it to him and make you deposit more money onto the site... because buddys bringing a rake and your bringing in nothing so until you start raking they'll keep taking. Makes sense when you look at it from that aspect.

I don't think this is is the case at all. If your losing it because of the way you are playing. If anything it's better for them in the long run if you win because that would make you want to play more.

Has anyone ever seen a large prize come up? I've. Played loads of these but never seen major money come up on the reel, this is where it's very obvious that the prize that comes up is pre selected and not at all random
