New GGPoker Spin & Gold Offers Unique Twists on Jackpot SNGs

GGPoker just rolled out its new Jackpot Sit N Go game, Spin & Gold, and players will want to take note of the features that set it apart from the games offered by other poker rooms.

First let’s start with the basics of Spin & Gold:

  • Plays three-handed
  • Available buy-in levels: $1, $5, $20 and $50
  • Multipliers range from 2x to 12,000x

But GGPoker has put their own “spin” on the new game by offering some cool unique features that sets them apart from the competition.

  • Insurance – the optional insurance feature allows players to get their buy-in back if the multiplier is 2x, effectively making it a freeroll!
  • Dynamic Starting Stacks – The higher the multiplier, the more chips you start with and the more time you get to act, allowing more play when the prize is big and making it faster to jump into another game when the multiplier is small.
  • More places paid at Higher Multipliers – Get more money for just being at the table when a big multiplier hits. When a 10x multiplier or higher hits, all three players are guaranteed to cash.
  • Flatter Payouts for the Biggest Jackpot – With some spins you have to win the big jackpot outright to get a sizable chunk of the prize pool, but with Spin & Gold the 2nd and 3rd place finishers get approximately 3-4 times as much as on other sites.

PokerStars to Celebrate International Women’s Day with a Platinum Pass

On Sunday, March 8 PokerStars will run a special women-only online poker tournament giving away one Platinum Pass to the winner.

This International Women’s Day, PokerStars is once again doing something special.

To support this year’s #InternationalWomensDay that takes place on March 8 every year, PokerStars will run a special ladies-only online poker tournament on its online poker platform, guaranteeing one Platinum Pass to the winner.

The winner will take home a coveted Platinum Pass worth $30,000 that includes entry to the €22,500 PSPC 2020 event scheduled to take place in Barcelona in August, six nights’ accommodation for two in a 5* hotel, PSPC merchandise, €1250 in expenses and various exclusive Platinum Pass winner experiences during the event.

The second and third-place finishers will be awarded a €1050 PSPC satellite ticket.

The buy-in for this special event will be $22 and it will be open only to female players. Participants must have their gender assigned as female in the “Settings” tab. They can also contact PokerStars Support if they require any assistance changing this setting.

Any male participant will be disqualified and will forfeit any prize with no refund provided.

“PokerStars wants to celebrate women in poker by taking a look at our women-focused offering and spicing it up, starting with dedicating a Platinum Pass to a community that regularly enjoys playing these Sunday tournaments,” said Rebecca McAdam Willetts, Associate Director of Public Relations, The Stars Group.

“We’re always out there asking questions. What can we do better? What can we change? And we like to encourage more female players to reach out to us with their feedback. One suggestion was female-focused qualifiers to live events, and what could be better than a Platinum Pass to the PSPC?” she added.

Each of the PokerStars female Team Pros and ambassadors is expected to take part in this event including Jennifer Shahade, Celina Lin and PokerStars Streamers— Eva Reberc and GJ Reggie.

What is the Best Card Game to Play at a Casino?

How many casino games do you know? Whether you prefer to play at a physical casino or online, there’s no shortage of options to choose from. Whether you like to try chance games like slots or strategy-based games like poker, anyone who enjoys casino gaming these days should not have a problem finding a new game to try, or even a different variation of their favourite.

But what’s the top casino game to play? It really does depend on what your preferences are. Poker and blackjack are two extremely popular choices, but it all comes down to the player and what they find the most enjoyable. Some players prefer chance games because whether or not they win is completely up to fate, while others like to at least have a go at being the winner through the strategy that they use.

Here are some of the most popular casino games – which is your favourite?

Blackjack

Also sometimes known as Pontoon or 21, Blackjack is by far the most popular table card game out there. It’s also popular because it’s quite simple to play and easy to pick up, so it’s a good choice for casino newbies who are just getting into the world of card games, whether online or at a physical casino.

If you play at the casino, you’re usually going to be joined by a table full of players to compete against, while playing blackjack online usually means you’re on your own competing against the dealer, with a table to yourself. The aim of the game is to get a better hand than the dealer; the ultimate goal is to get ‘Blackjack’ – a combination of a suit card and an ace, or a ten and an ace.

All players and the dealer are dealt two cards. If you have less than 21, (suit cards are worth 10 and aces are worth 10 or 1, depending on the best combination), you can ‘hit’ to be dealt additional cards to try and improve the value of your hand.

Poker

Poker is another hugely successful and popular casino game that you’ve probably seen a lot of in the movies. It’s more complex than Blackjack, but once you know the rules and become familiar with the game, it’s a huge amount of fun to play.

You can play poker at both physical and online casinos, but since it’s usually played with other players, it can be tough to deliver it in an online setting. Most online casinos have set times for poker tournaments, or you can join tables to play against other online players. If you want to play poker online, then you should get familiar with the game. One way to do that is with the poker-themed games like the ones at poker at SlottyVegas. There’s also the option to play video poker, which is usually popular online and is essentially playing poker on a slot machine.

If you’re new to poker, there are several variations of the game to learn, but you should start with Texas Hold’Em; this is the easiest to learn and the most popular – it’s usually this version that you’ll find played at both offline and online casinos. Before you start betting, spend some time learning the different winning hand variations; there are several!

Roulette

Whether it’s the big gambling table or the iconic spinning wheel, there’s just something about roulette that makes it the first thing that comes to mind for most players when they picture a casino. It’s one of the most popular games in both online and offline casinos, and it’s an ideal game for those who prefer to forget about strategy and put their luck in the hands of chance. And, roulette is a fun, easy game to play – with chances to win big, if you manage to place the right bets.

However, players should be aware that roulette is a big money-maker for casinos; it’s no surprise that there are usually more roulette tables than anything else. Winning at this game really is down to luck of the draw, although there have been several ‘fool proof’ winning methods and betting systems – use these if you like, but be vigilant and aware that these really do not work for everyone all the time and even if one helps you win big at first, it doesn’t mean that it’s going to happen again.

Which of these three popular casino games is your favourite to play? Do you prefer to leave it to chance, or learn a gaming strategy?
