PokerStars introduces VIP Steps beta in UK, players show negative feedback
Posted by Defrag, September 02
PokerStars has invited players in the United Kingdom to participate in a test of 'VIP Steps'- a new VIP Club system at PokerStars. As part of this beta test, players will be the first to discover this new feature and will have the opportunity to send feedback to finalize the implementation of VIP steps on the rest of the global market.

How PokerStars explains the new system: "VIP Steps are a new way of earning FPPs by completing a Progress Bar that will be displayed on the table and in the lobby. This progress bar will show players how close they are to completing their next VIP Step and how many FPPs they receive each time that they complete a VIP Step. Instead of linearly earning FPPs in the background, FPPs will be released upon completion of the progress bar at the table. One of the primary purposes of Steps is to surface VIP Rewards to players so that there is a more intuitive relationship between playing and earning FPPs.

Are Spin&Go'es beatable or not?
Written by: Defrag, April 13
Introduction to Spin&Go tournaments(skip that if you know how they work)
When Spin&Go tournaments were introduced there was an enormous migration of recreational players from normal Sit&go tournaments to Spin&go format - it's a perfect format to attract that kind of players.
If you don't know how they work - each tournament is 3-max, winner-take-all, hyper turbo Sit&go with a random prize pool. Buy-ins range from $1 to $60, and each tournament has a randomly drawn prize pool that will award between two and 3,000 times your buy-in. The highest multiplies are obviously super rare (1 of 100,000 for the 3,000xbuy-in, even the 240x multiplier have a chance of just 5 out of 100,000).

The games are insanely fast, give a thrill of emotion through the random prize pool and that's what recreational players were looking for. Jackpot was hit by PokerStars.

With the introduction of Spin&Go most of the recreatio...
