PokerStars is finally getting ready to launch its own online mystery bounty tournament. Although new formats were launched every year in the past, setting the tone for the entire industry, operators no longer pay attention to them. Red Spades didn’t introduce them to his room when the Mystery Prize Tournament was booming. However, everything now indicates that the event will be in the room in the near future.
All major poker rooms and even smaller ones like mobile poker clubs use this format. Starzy explained the lack of such events, saying that mystery bounties have certain flaws:
“There are some issues with these tournaments that I think need to be addressed before we can start a bigger event. Star Online Director Chris Stragalis commented: “Today was more of an isolated incident. “
According to Chris, the main problem is that the percentage of players who participate is too small. To be able to get the mystery reward. You have to survive 85% of the games, and only 15% of people can get the mystery bounty .
Stragalis emphasized that Starz is working hard to make this format more attractive and accessible to players. It is not yet known what the red spades option will look like: like other rooms or with unique features .
PokerStars traditionally tests novelties in its small pools, so little is known about this. Portal Pokerfuse understands that new graphical elements will be added to the tournament and prizes will be given out in envelopes , and can be opened at any time – including keeping the attraction until the end of the event.
Demos may be live in a few weeks. Starz always does small series ahead of WCOOP, and the launch of the new Mystery Bounty series Might be a good warm up for the big game.
