Twister Sit & Gos

We really enjoy poker. That should come as no surprise to anyone who finds themselves at this site. To us, poker can mean a lot of different things. It can be meeting up with your buddies in the comfort of your own house for a casual game. It can mean heading off to a bricks and mortar poker room for a hours-long tournament session. Or it can be something a little more easy and fast-paced. Twister Sit & Go tournaments are firmly in the latter camp.

The basics of Twister Sit & Gos

If you’ve been playing online poker for any length of time, chances are you’ve already come across Twister Sit & Gos or games like them. But if you haven’t, you should know that they are kind of like a fusion of casino and poker. The game starts with a randomly determined prize pool. This is a pretty casino-influenced element of the variant. Before you get down to the poker, you find out if you’re playing for anywhere between 2x and 1,000x your buy-in.

Then the poker part starts. These are three-handed sit and go tournaments, which means you’re competing against just two other players. That means that the action is intense and fast-paced as soon as you start playing, a stark contrast to traditional tournaments that can take hours to heat up.

Let’s talk buy in and fees

There’s a pretty wide range of buy-ins for Twister Sit & Gos. The minimum starts from just €1 and the maximum buy-in reaches the nosebleed heights of €100 a game. In terms of fees, you can expect to stump up 7% of the total buy-in in tournament fees.

Twister Sit & Go prize pools

As we said before, the Twister Sit & Go prize pools range from 2x and go up to 1,000x your buy-in. Here are the exact multipliers you can expect to find when you play Twister Sit & Gos:

  • 2x
  • 3x
  • 4x
  • 5x
  • 8x
  • 10x
  • 50x
  • 100x
  • 1,000x

Is there anything you can do to stack the chances in your favor for snagging a higher multiplier? Well yes, there is one thing. The higher level buy-ins are more likely to result in higher multipliers. So if you buy in for between €50 and €100, you’ve got a one in 20,000 chance of snagging the top multiplier. Meanwhile, if you buy in for between €1 and €20, your chance of the 1,000x prize pool is one in 50,000. The same goes for the more modest multipliers for example, just over a quarter of €50-€100 Twister Sit & Gos result in a 3x multiplier, whereas the figure is more like one in five for €1-€20 games.

Now, generally speaking, the player who comes out on top of the three-handed tournament gets the whole prize pool. But if the total prize pool is over €1,000, everyone gets a slice. That means 80% for the first place player and 10% apiece for the other two players.
