PokerStars Announces New Pricing Structure for Some Games

Responding to the current business environment, the world’s largest online poker company, PokerStars, has announced a series of revised pricing for select games that go into effect March 28, 2016. 

Key pricing changes include:

• Spin & Go rake will be increased by one percentage point for buy-ins from $1 to $30 (two percentage points in $3 buy-in). $0.25, $60 and $100 buy-ins will not change.

• In multi-table tournaments, PokerStars will match the practices deployed in our closed liquidity markets where rebuys and add-ons incur fees similar to the original entry. These tournaments represent approximately 12% of the current main schedule.

• MTT hyper-turbo rake will be increased to 5%.

• Cap and percentage of rake will be increased in some no limit and pot limit ring games, mainly heads-up. Some rake caps will be lowered. Limit games will not be affected.

The company says that, even with these changes, their prices will remain “the lowest of any major online poker operator”.

The rake increase is estimated to be 4 percent.
