The first lottery SnG with a jackpot was the Winamax Expresso. The players really enjoyed the new game and several poker rooms added its own version to their lobbies. At the moment, you can play Spin&Go on the following networks:
- PokerStars.com and PokerStars.es — Spin & Go;
- partypoker — Sit & Go Jackpot;
- Microgaming Network (RedKings, RedStar) — Fish Party;
- Network Poker (Betfair Poker) — Twister;
- Chico (Tigergaming) and Pokerdom — Windfall;
- Winning Network (PokerKing) — Jackpot Poker;
- 888 Poker — Blaze.
And now it's the Unibet's turn. Unibet is one of the most famous and traditional poker rooms, a leader in measures to protect the recreational players and because of that, it's popular for having a very weak field to play. It currently ranks 13 in the PokerScout list.
Hexapro — Spins Unibet way
Hexapro will be similar to the classic Spins considering the 3-max hyper-turbo format tournament with a random prize determined at the beginning of the tournament with a multiplier and an initial stack of 500 chips.
There will be seven Hexapro stakes — €1; €2; €5; €10; €25; €50; €100.
But besides this, Hexapro will have several distinctive features from other Spin options:
- Multiplier range: 1.5x, 3x, 5x, 10x, 25x, 100x, 1,000x;
- The blind increase time will depend on the multiplier
|Multiplier||Blind structure (minutes)|
- Winning probability:
|Multiplier/Stakes||€ 1||€ 2||€ 5||€ 10||€ 25||€ 50||€ 100||Probability|
|1,000x||€1,000||€2,000||€5,000||€10,000||€25,000||€50,000||€100,000||1 of 100,000|
|100х||€ 100||€ 200||€ 500||€1,000||€2,500||€5,000||€10,000||5 of 100,000|
|25х||€ 25||€ 50||€ 125||€ 250||€ 625||€1,250||€2,500||100 of 100,000|
|10х||€ 10||€ 20||€ 50||€ 100||€ 250||€ 500||€1,000||4,600 of 100,000|
|5х||€ 5||€ 10||€ 25||€ 50||€ 125||€ 250||€ 500||14,000 of 100,000|
|3x||€ 3||€ 6||€ 15||€ 30||€ 75||€ 150||€ 300||25,000 of 100,000|
|1,5x||€ 1,50||€ 3||€ 7,50||€ 15||€ 37,50||€ 75||€ 150||56,294 of 100,000|
* At the first two multipliers (1,000x and 100x), the winnings will be split among the first 3 players: 80%, 12%, 8%.
- Blind structure:
The main feature of Hexapro is its multipliers. On the poker room statement, two facts were mentioned as a big plus of these tournaments:
- Almost 43% of the tournaments will have a 3x multiplier.
- Compared to its competitors, it's more likely to play in a 10x tournament.
In general, the 3x multiplier is not used anywhere and it's difficult to compare it with other rooms. The presence of a 1.5x multiplier suggests that 56% of the time, Hexapro players will compete for a prize pool 25% less than spin players in other networks. However, in other rooms, the 70%-75% of cases the minimum multiplier falls in. We cannot say for sure if the multiplier structure will be beneficial for the players or even if it will compensate for the smaller prize pool.
We can only say that at Unibet, 43% of the tournaments will have a 3x multiplier while in other rooms a maximum of 30% corresponds to 4x tournaments. But the statement about the 10x multiplier is wrong, as in Hexapro its probability is 4.6%, and for other Spins, this indicator ranges from 5% to 7%, and less only in Tigergaming.
The rake structure of Hexapro will be 6,853%. This is a low-cost figure for €5 stakes and a little more expensive in other tournaments. Considering the non-transparent rakeback system at Unibet, the rake size for the upper limits could be considered high.
The introduction of new game formats is almost always good for the popularity of the room, especially when it comes to Spins. The Hexapro tournaments at Unibet promise to be very unusual due to the multiplier and the blind structure. It's too early to draw conclusions about how successful new version will be, even knowing the large number of fish players in the room (remember that Unibet doesn't have HUD).
The traffic is also uncertain, as in regular SnG tournaments the highest stake available is €25 and during peak time, 5 tournaments can be played, which is not too much for Spin players.
Furthermore, the beginning of winter is the most convenient time to introduce new formats in terms of maintaining traffic. Only in December, we will have more information about the latest innovation of Unibet.
