Power Path is a four-step qualification method that starts with a $0.50 Spin & Go, leading to either a $1 buy-in On Demand Sit & Go or a $1.50 multi-table tournament (MTT), which is Step 2.

This advancement leads to Step 3, where players receive $11 in tickets. Successfully clearing Step 3 also grants them access to the final stage, Step 4.

Step 4 features a $109 tournament that distributes the coveted Power Passes across three tiers: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. While players can fast-track their progression by directly entering Step 2 or 3, players must secure their spot in Step 4 by winning in Step 3.
