BetOnline Introduces New 2021 Tournament Schedule
During the coronavirus pandemic of 2020, many US-based poker players sought more options for online poker at sites like BetOnline.ag and SportsBetting.ag. The two sites share online poker tables and provide a comfortable space for micro-stakes and small-stakes players.
As 2021 got underway, the pandemic made clear that it wasn’t disappearing any time soon. Many lockdown situations only tightened as Covid-19 spread like wildfire across America…and around the world. Live poker rooms seem to be trying their best to open – or remain open – in some limited capacity, but many players are still not prepared to risk their lives to play.
BetOnline responded to the situation and to requests by its throngs of new players with a new tournament schedule and promotions that include special edition Windfall SNGs.

Note that there is also a “tournament requests” page on the website, so players can let BetOnline know what they’d like to see and play.
The Windfall sit & go is BetOnline’s version of a fast-fold short-handed poker game. The games start with three players in a hyper-turbo format. Buy-ins range from $3 to $30, and prize pools are random but can climb as high as 100,000x the buy-in. The prize multiplier appears when players are seated and prepared to play.
The multipliers produce the following prize pools, in order of most to least frequent, for the Windfall Special Edition games:
–1.5x prize of $15: winner-takes-all
–2x prize of $20: winner-takes-all
–5x prize of $50: winner-takes-all
