Players heading to the cash game tables at partypoker now have a shot at some extra winnings. The new “Hot Tables” offer random boosts up to $500 – a chance for extra cash for players of all bankrolls.
“Hot Tables has been a challenging but fun development for multiple teams and aims to target a wider range of players with rewards across our cash games on both desktop and mobile,” partypoker head of product Ross McQuater said in a news release.
“We are excited to see how our players react to the introduction of Hot Tables as we continue to find ways to improve their poker experience.”
How do partypoker Hot Tables work?
Hot Tables are available in both regular and fastforward cash games. The idea is similar to partypoker’s SPINS and SPINS Ultra games.
Individual tables are randomly selected for prizes, adding some extra fun to the experience. Boosted pots can come at any possible time during play. A multiplier randomly determines the size of the prize pool.
Prizes come in five separate tiers: bronze, silver, gold, platinum and diamond. Here’s a look at the prize payouts:
|Stakes||Minimum prize||Maximum prize|
More details on the Hot Tables feature
When the Hot Table feature is triggered, players will know what their prize range is before the hand starts. The boosted hand winner then finds out what the actual boosted pot is and receives the prize.
If a fastforward table gains a boost, then the forward-fold option is removed from that table. This gives all players a chance to win the boosted pot.
Team partypoker pros will also be getting in on the action in the Hot Tables Challenge. This event features two pros playing Hot Tables for two hours on Wednesdays with a $1,000 bankroll.
The goal is to win more than the other player and become the winner of the day. The winning player returns the following week and plays until another player manages to take his or her place.
PartypokerTV, the site’s Twitch channel, will stream the Hot Tables Challenge action live each week. Hot Tables offer some nice bang for the buck.
