GGPoker brings a chance for fans to support their favorite team with an added benefit to those who support underdogs. Bet & Go Tournament comes with buy-ins that are modified based on the odds of the team that a player is supporting.
The Tournament is matched to the ongoing event with two buy-in options. Players can support either of the opponents. Buy-ins are modified by reflecting a discount that depends on which team has higher odds in its favor.
For instance, a big favorite team to win a particular event will have lower discounts on buy-ins. On the other hand, an underdog will have higher discounts for the players.
The mechanism is in place already that automatically knocks out the players after their side has lost. They can stay in manually by getting extra buy-in at a non-discounted price. The poker tournament closes for those who lose the event. Registrations are not to be withdrawn once an event has started.
Assuming most players participate in the first-ever game of the Bet & Go Tournament, they will be unable to take their bets back once the Qatar vs. Ecuador event gets started. Several other tournaments are scheduled for all the football matches in the days to follow. New players can also claim Welcome Bonus while automatically qualifying for the Fish Buffet loyalty program of GGPoker.
As per the betting news, Daniel Negreanu, the Global Ambassador for GGPoker, said that players could take advantage of the biggest discounts to cheer for their favorite teams if they are underdogs. Saying that the Tournament could be a win-win, Daniel added that players would be free to continue to play for the money.
Bet & Go Tournament is more interesting because the odds will be updated in real time, with changes appearing in the buy-in according to the situation. Buy-ins will be available at a discounted price only until the first whistle has been blown.
There could be a situation where all the players are knocked out together. While the chances of this happening are close to zero, it is still a possibility worth considering. In this case, players will be ranked based on the chip stack upon knockout. Discounted buy-ins will run out once the event ends with no consideration for overtime and penalty.
Re-entry is possible only after the event ends and a player has been knocked out. They will, however, have to enter with a normal buy-in. Bet & Go Tournament will be highlighted with the flags of the teams participating in the sporting event. Updates are likely to come up on the official social media accounts of GGPoker or at the client.
