Pokerstars launches Spin & Go Omaha tournaments.

By RP, April 20, 2017

The popular Pokerstars Spin & Go format now accommodates Omaha games with the launch of Spin & Go Omaha, the company announced Wednesday.

“Omaha is a highly enjoyable poker variant and was quite high up on our players’ request list to deliver it as a Spin & Go,” said Severin Rasset, Director of Poker Operations and Innovation. “The icing on the cake for players is that these Spin & Go’s will be an exclusive qualifier into our SCOOP Event 5: Pot Limit Omaha [6 max] on May 7, so there really is no better time to get involved and give it a try.”

Spin & Go tournaments are fast-paced, three-max Hyper Turbo Sit & Go tournaments, featuring 500 chip starting stacks, where each tournament has a randomly drawn prize pool that will award between two and 10,000 times the player’s buy-in.

Spin & Go Omaha will be available to play at $1, $3, $7 and $15 stakes. Players will receive four hold cards and must use two of these in combination with three of the cards from the board to make their poker hand. Spin & Go Omaha tournaments will be played as Pot Limit.
