On Monday, 1st of June 2015, iPoker implemented a split prize for Twister tournaments.
The purpose of this change is to give a better experience to players when the large prize pools occur and to close the gap with competitors.
From this date, it is possible to configure the Twister jackpot in such a way that the higher amount of the jackpot prize can be split among all the tournament participants.
On the 1st of June, the following configuration rolled out:
- If the prize pool is >= €1,000, then the payout will be:
- winner - 80%
- 2nd - 10%
- 3rd - 10%
For example: In the €10 buy in, there are prize pools of €1K, €2K and €10K.
With these, the prize for 1st place will be 800x the buy-in, with remaining money given to 2nd and 3rd place.
Impact on marketing message!
Please note that you can no longer advertise with “Win up to 1,000 times your buy-in”
But you can/should advertise with something like “Prize pool up to 1,000 times your buy-in”.
