Please no jackpot/spin format. Sites who add this format have had a big decline in the liquidity of their regular SNG offerings. IMO Spin and Fastfold are faster forms of poker which just take away lots of player's from regular and more traditional forms of poker. In these games, the player is stripped of their money quicker (both to rake and table) and eventually will never bother to re-deposit. There are a few success stories of those big jackpot winners, but do these really attract players in the end? That money is probably withdrawn from the site at a quicker rate too.

If sites keep making this mistake of adding non traditional formats to "make it more exciting", all that will be left is the debris of what was once the game of poker. Make the game more exciting through promotions, stop trying to make pseudo pokers because after all people got into poker for the classic game.

I tend not to like Expresso-style games because it's hard to have winners.  I don't think you can have a poker format where nobody wins, and we already have a whole section of Unibet dedicated to casino games.  It's also a format that requires a lot of liquidity, and it's a format where we'd lose some existing SNG & cash liquidity even if it works.  It's hard to come up with ways to get around those problems. 

I also definitely don't like double or nothing SNG.  They're too easy to collude in, in a way that's hard to catch without big sample sizes.  They would also split SNG liquidity.

Microgaming launched their own spin and go and i am afraid that they dont    have such a big success and is much , much biger than Unibet.


 They aren't.  They're about 20% bigger than us, though their promo at the moment pushes them higher than normal.  We're also growing faster than they are.

I reviewed a dozen pages of poker and it seems to me that the point structure for tournaments Sit'n it's that I described below is the most fair.

 2 Seaters Sit'n go's:

1st: 20 points

2nd: 0 points

 5 Seaters Sit'n go's:

1st: 60 points

2nd: 30 points

Rest: 0 points

 

Tournament leaderboards divide on three separate categories:

The first category tournaments with a buy-in ranging from $1.00 to $4.00.

The second category tournaments with a buy-in ranging from $10.00 to $25.00

The third category tournaments with a buy-in ranging from $50.00 to $100.00

 

Points multipliers for first category: 

Buy-in $1: x1

Buy-in $2: x2

Buy-in $4: x4

Points multipliers for second category: 

Buy-in $10: x1

Buy-in $25: x2,5

Points multipliers for second category: 

Buy-in $50: x1

Buy-in $100: x2

 

What do you say upon My suggestions?

I think the problem with this is that it exclusively rewards better players, which is fine for those of us who are good at S&Gs but the opposite of what Unibet are trying to do for recreational players.
