Multi-Table Tournaments, also known as MTTs, are typically larger tournaments and they start at predetermined times. Before the tournament starts, players must first register to participate. This usually involves a "buy-in" (entry fee) although some tournaments are free to enter. Free tournaments are referred to as Freerolls. Payouts for MTTs vary according to the number of players. Usually between 10% and 20% of players win a prize.
You can view a complete list of available Multi-Table Tournaments in the MTT Lobby.
Sit & Go Tournaments
Unlike Multi-Table Tournaments, Sit & Go Tournaments (SnGs) do not start at a pre-determined time. Instead they start as soon as the pre-determined number of players are seated.
The different size of Sit & Go's include:
- Heads Up - one on one tournaments with one winner
- 3-max - Events where three players compete for one prize
- 6-Max - six player tournaments with two prizes
- Regular - nine player tournaments with three prizes
- MT 4-Max - three table tournaments, four players at each table
- MT 6-Max - three table tournaments, six players at each table
Turbo Tournaments are available in both MTT and SnG formats, and they are identified by the highlighted lightening bolt on the left side of the lobby list. During these tournaments, blinds and levels increase much faster than regular tournaments. For example, instead of level increases every 10 or 12 minutes, the levels increase may increase as often as every 3 minutes.
Bounty Tournaments and Knockout Tournaments award players a bounty prize for knocking out other players. The amount of the Bounty can be found in the tournament info box in the lobby. You post a Bounty for yourself alongside the normal entry and fee before you start playing.
Either SnG or MTT games can be Bounty events
When a SnG game offers a Bounty prize, they are usually known as Knockouts

Satellite Tournaments are qualifying multi-table tournaments where players are awarded ticket prizes that grant entry into bigger tournaments. We currently offer two kinds of satellites:
During Rebuy Tournaments, players have a chance to add the amount of starting chips again, for a fee, after losing all their chips (or dropping below a certain number of chips).
This is permitted during the rebuy period. The rebuy period varies based on the tournament and is identified in the tournament details. After the rebuy period has ended, players may get the opportunity to make an add-on. The add-on gives a player a one-time addition of chips, often for an amount greater than the starting chips.
Any add-ons or rebuys are added to the total prize pool of the tournament.
Guaranteed Tournaments are identified by the GTD in the prize pool column. These tournaments run throughout the day and feature what's called a guaranteed prize pool. This means that the prize pool won't ever be lower than the specified amount, regardless of the number of participants in the tournament.
