GG poker Spin & Gold is a hyper-turbo SnG format where players can win up to 200,000x buy-ins. It is offered in 3-max (buy-ins range from $0.25 to $200) and 6-max format (buy-ins: $0.25, $1, $3, $10).

About 6-max Spin & Gold, a unique variant, we highlight that the prize pools are higher compared to the regular 3-max format (x200,000 ($2M) in the $10 one vs. x100,000 ($1M)).

The biggest jackpot was hit on June 21, 2021: the $100 buy-in tournament triggered the maximum x20K multiplier; thus, three participants shared a $2M prize pool. The eventual winner, "kapsikorn," took home a huge $1,000,000.

Spin & Gold rake structure

A 7% fee is applied to these tournaments regardless of the stakes and table size.

Compared to other sites, such rake can be called standard.

Rakeback

Spin & Gold players earn rakeback not only through the Fish Buffet rewards program. There are separate daily leaderboards for different stakes ($20,000 in ticket prizes per day) and unlimited Spin&Gold Challenges.

All leaderboards start at 9:00 CET and award a total of $20,000 in tickets per day:

How does the Spin & Gold insurance work?

gg poker spin and gold insurance

It "insures" the player from getting the lowest x2 multiplier (x4 for 6-max tables) but doubles the buy-in.

Suppose you choose insurance and get an x2 multiplier. In that case, the tournament turns into a freeroll (you get back both the buy-in and the insurance). In the case of any other multiplier, the insurance amount is lost.

Of course, you can play without insurance. Just make the appropriate choice by clicking one of the two buttons at the bottom of the Spin&Gold lobby: "Play Now with insurance" or "Play Now without insurance."

Is it worth the money?

Since the probabilities of hitting x2 and x3 multipliers are very close (46.5% vs. 44.3%), taking insurance is a bad decision in the long run. It is equal to paying double rake for every tournament played.

Spin & Gold strategy

playing spin & gold

Try to get the most out of low multiplier tournaments usually neglected by casual players.

Obviously, most of the tournaments you play will have x2, x3, and x5 multipliers. Do not be distracted by the jackpot dreams and play as focused as possible because such low-value SnGs form the major part of your ROI. Always try to get first place.

Study more about the push-fold stage. Understanding the ranges will help you make correct decisions in different spots. Due to the high level of variance in Spin & Gold, you should have a bankroll of a few hundred buy-ins.

Spin&Go is one of the most studied formats in online poker rooms; hence you won't have any problem finding modern strategies to beat the game.
