PokerStars’ recently introduced Multi-Table Tournament (MTT) feature – ‘early payout tournaments’ is proving popular, the operator said, having already been implemented in more than half of its MTT’s.
Once an MTT reaches a paid position, all eligible players receive an immediate payout of the minimum cash amount specified in that tournament’s prize structure. Players eliminated after this will then be paid the difference between the minimum cash amount and the total prize earned.
According to the operator, more than $1 million a day has been released to players through the new feature, giving them additional choices to play once they have reached a paid position without having to deposit additional funds.
PokerStars will roll out the feature across all possible licenses in the coming months.
