What Is Arcade Mode?

Arcade Mode features single-table, 6-player SNG tournaments.

SNG tournaments are on-demand poker tournaments. Instead of a scheduled time, the tournament starts right when your table is full. Games start with 10/20 blinds and increase at set time intervals throughout the tournament until there’s 1 last player standing.

The 1st place and 2nd place winners get Tournament Badges that you can redeem for prizes in the Arcade Prize Shop.

Multi-tabling is allowed and you can enter multiple tournaments at a time.

Tournament Payout Structure

Tournament prizes depend on the tournament’s Ticket entry. The higher the entry fee, the more you win.

Here’s the current payout structure:

  • 1st place: 66% of the badge prize pool + your Ticket entry back

  • 2nd place: 33% of the badge prize pool

For example, the prizes for a tournament with a 3 Ticket entry are:

  • 1st place: 2 badges + 3 Tickets

  • 2nd place: 1 badge
