What are Bet & Go tournaments?
Bet & Go combines the excitement of a major sporting event with a poker tournament. During the Bet & Go period, you can buy into the Bet & Go tournament for a discounted price based on the likelihood of an outcome of a major sporting event. If your picked sporting team wins or the match is a draw, you will continue in the tournament. However, if your picked sporting team loses, you will be knocked out of the tournament.
Can I buy in without picking a competitor?
Yes. Once the linked event has concluded, late registration will remain open so players can buy in at the regular buy-in for the tournament.
How long is the Bet & Go discounted period?
Bet & Go rules apply to any buy-ins made before the start of the linked event or while the linked event is 'in-play.'
So how does it work exactly?
Before the event starts:
- Registration will be available at a discount based on the winning odds of each competitor.
- If you pick a team and register with a discounted buy-in, you will not be able to unregister from the tournament. It becomes a must-play.
- At the start of the linked event, the tournament will begin.
During the linked event:
- Registration will continue to be open during the linked event, and buy-in discounts can change based on the live situation in the event. For example, if the linked event is a Soccer match and one side scores a goal, the winning odds for each team will change, and buy-ins for the event will be updated to reflect this.
- Players can enter or re-enter during the tournament based on the current odds of each participant in the linked event.
- Players who are re-entering can choose to either stick with the competitor they originally backed or switch to a different competitor.
After the linked event ends (applies to regulation time only, any extra time, shootouts, or any other way of deciding a drawn or tied event will not apply)
- Players who pick the winning competitor will continue in the tournament.
- If the linked event ends in a draw or tie at the end of regulation time, all players will continue in the tournament.
- Players who pick the losing competitor will be eliminated from the tournament immediately and their chips removed. However, they will have the option to buy in again at the standard buy-in.
- The event will then continue as a standard tournament.
Will the discount on the buy-in reflect the odds in the event?
Yes. For example, if one competitor is a heavy favourite, you will only get a small discount on your buy-in if you pick them. However, the underdog will get a sizeable discount, but you run a bigger risk of being eliminated if the underdog loses. It's up to you to decide where the value lies.
Can I switch sports team if I am eliminated during the Bet & Go phase of the event?
Yes. If you are eliminated from the event, you can choose to pick any of the sports team with your next entry.
Can I switch sports team without being eliminated?
No. Once you have picked a sports team for that entry and received a discount, you must play until you are eliminated or win the event. Therefore, any rebuys must be for the same sports team selected for that entry.
When a sports team loses in the linked event, what happens to the eliminated players and their chips?
Eliminated players will immediately get knocked out of the tournaments after the current hand and their chips will be removed from the tournament.
I picked the wrong sports team when buying in. Can I change my mind?
No. Once you click buy-in, this is final. Only elimination from the event will allow you to change your mind, so please choose carefully.
Is staking available?
No. Staking will not be offered.
Are there Satellites / Express Satellites for Bet & Go tournaments?
No. Bet & Go tournaments are direct buy-in only.
What happens if the linked event is cancelled or postponed?
In rare cases such as this, the tournament will be cancelled and subject to our standard refund and cancellation policy.
I'm unable to see Bet & Go tournaments - why is this?
