Spin & Go’s have been a popular, rapid-fire tournament format at PokerStars for some time. A new promotion from Fox Bet aims to supercharge Spin & Go’s at PokerStars NJ.
Every Saturday on PokerStars NJ, Fox Bet is increasing the top prize for a $1 buy-in Spin & Go to $1 million. That’s a huge boost over the usual $1,000 top prize.
The promotion lasts for 24 hours once per week, from midnight to midnight every Saturday. That means those playing $1 Spin & Go’s on Saturdays on PokerStars NJ have a shot at multiplying their buy-in by 1,000,000.
Spend a dollar and a few minutes, win a million
Spin & Go buy-ins on PokerStars NJ range from $1 up to $25, so this promotion rewards the lowest-stakes version of the game.
Spin & Go’s are like traditional sit & go’s. They are not scheduled tournaments, but only take place once the needed number of participants have registered.
Spin & Go’s are always three-player no-limit hold’em tournaments, played with a fast, turbo structure. The total buy-ins do not determine the amount of the prize pool. Rather, a spin of a wheel before the first hand establishes what the prize pool will be. Typically in Spin & Go’s, players can win anywhere from two to 1,000 times their buy-in.
The Saturdays-only FOX Bet promotion alters the usual schedule of prizes for $1 Spin & Go’s to make the top prize $1 million. Each of the two losing players will earn $100,000 as well just for being lucky enough to be there when the $1 million prize turns up on the spinning wheel.
Players in the Saturday Spin & Go’s on PokerStars NJ can also win anywhere from $2 to $200. When the top prize is $200 or $100, the losing players will still be awarded 10% of the top prize.
The promotion began last Saturday and has no scheduled end date.
Here is the full table of prizes and probabilities for the $1 Spin & Go’s on PokerStars NJ every Saturday:
|$1,000,000 (plus $100,000 each for runners-up)||1 in 10,000,000|
|$200 (plus $20 each for runners-up)||300 in 10,000,000|

PokerStars NJ Bounty Builder series wraps up this weekend
The promotion arrives as the PokerStars NJ Bounty Builder tournament series continues to play out on the site. The series features a 53-event schedule of progressive knockout events with guaranteed prize pools totaling $600,000.
This Sunday, the PokerStars NJ Bounty Builder culminates with the start of the two-day Main Event, a $300 buy-in tournament with a $70,000 guarantee. Besides the top prize, the winner will claim one of 18 Championship Belts going to Bounty Builder champions during the series.
There is a $50 buy-in Mini Main on Sunday as well, for which the winner will also receive a Championship Belt. A one-day tournament, the Mini Main has a guaranteed prize pool of $20,000.
A concurrent Bounty Builder series has been playing out in neighboring Pennsylvania on PokerStars PA as well. That series features 70 events and just over $1.5 million in guaranteed prize pools.
