Betsson launched its new Fish Party lottery style sit & go games earlier this week. Now the weekend is here, it’s a great time to try out the new games and win the jackpot top prize.
The Fish Party follows the basic concept of lottery SNGs but adds the twist that the top prize for each tournament is progressive.
Every tournament is played three-handed and short-stacked, so games only take a few minutes each to play. The prize for the winner is randomly chosen before the tournament starts, and varies from a multiple of two times the buy-in, up to ….well, that’s where the “progressive” comes in.
Typical lottery SNGs like the PokerStars Spin & Go offer a top prize of between 1,000 and 10,000 the buy-in. The Fish Party top prize will behave more like a badbeat jackpot.
The prize will increase every time a Fish Party tournament is played, until one table of players hit the lucky spin. The probabilities are set so that on average the progressive jackpot for the €50 buy-in Fish Party will grow to €1 million in size, although technically there’s no limit to how big the top prize can grow.
Betsson operates its online poker room on the MPN (formerly Microgaming) network which is now the eighth largest in the world.
The network recently introduced anonymous tables so that new players can have confidence that they are not being chased down by sharks. Of course, making the games more attractive to recreational players also means the average level of play has got easier to beat.
If you don’t yet have an account with Betsson, now is a great time to find out how the poker room has become so popular in recent years.
If you are looking for a different poker experience, the Fish Party tournaments are also available on PKR Poker.
PKR moved to the MPN network earlier this year, but retained its distinctive 3D graphics for a more realistic poker experience. Fish Party tournaments are called Jackpot Sit & Gos on PKR, but players play in the same large MPN player pool.
