Spin Your Way to the $5M GTD Big Blowout at PokerStars
Table Of Contents
Every Sunday in the inaugural Blowout Series at PokerStars features a huge Big Blowout event with a $5,000,000 GTD. This week's buy-in is $530, with a $1,050 Big Blowout event to round out the series next weekend.
But don't worry if you're itching to play, and don't quite have the cash to buy-in direct! There are still plenty of ways for you to get your hands on a ticket much cheaper through satellites (with cheap feeders), sit-and-go's, Spin & Go's, and more!
Spin Your Way to a $1,050 Big Blowout Ticket
If time is of the essence, and you want to see some constant action, you should consider playing the Special Edition Spin & Go's that will run until Jan. 17.
They are littered throughout the PokerStars lobby both day and night and easy to hop into.
The Special Edition Spin & Go's feature two separate price points. You can choose to play these games for just $4 or instead play a bit higher and hop into $22 Spin & Go's.
The games can be found within the Spin & Go section at PokerStars and kick off once three players have entered at which point the randomized prize is revealed.
Benefits of the $4 Spin & Go's
The biggest benefit to grinding the $4 Spin & Go's are that are more than five-times cheaper than the $22 version while still giving you a chance to win a Big Blowout ticket valued at $1,050.
Other prizes you can win include Blowout Series tickets valued at $109, $55, and $22 with it also possible for you to be playing for cash prizes of $11 or $8.
Benefits of the $22 Spin & Go's
Did you know? The odds of you winning the $1,050 Big Blowout ticket are more than 30-times likely than winning one in the $4 Spin & Go's!
In addition, you also have a chance to win a ticket to this Sunday's $530 Big Blowout, which is a prize not on tap in the $4 games. This ticket can also be used for other Blowout Series events featuring this buy-in.
Also on tap in the $22 games are Blowout Series tickets valued at $215, $109, and $55 along with the chance to play for $40 in cash.
One other big benefit to the $22 Spin & Go's as compared to the small version is the amount of effective rake you will pay. The $4 games feature a reasonable 8 percent rake structure while the $22 games boast a smaller 6 percent rake structure.
Don't Think You Can Win? Think Again!
Not everyone will win tickets that play in these Special Edition Spin & Go's. We know that and are sure you do too.
However, players do win tickets to big events via Spin & Go's more than you might think.
A great example was in November when British poker grinder Jamie Nixon hopped into a $75 Spin & Go after a day where nothing went well and won an EPT Online High Roller ticket valued at a $25,000!
Nixon parlayed this into a final table appearance where he bowed out in eighth place for $71,387. Not a bad return at all for just $75!
