The Lottery Sit and Go

The Lottery Sit and Go

In late 2013, French-regulated Winamax introduced Expresso, an innovative new online poker variant that blends hyperturbo tournaments with a chance element. Players enter 3-handed, winner-takes-all fast NL tournaments with low buy-ins.

The twist—the prize pool is randomized, from 2x the buy-in to 1000x.

Since Winamax introduces the format, collected dubbed Lottery Sit and Gs (or Lottery SNGs), it has been aped on the dot-com networks, including iPoker with Twister Poker, Full Tilt Poker with Jackpot SNGs and PokerStars, with Spin & Go.
