Celebrate the win
Win a game of bet365 Twister poker and you’ll be presented with the celebratory winners message congratulating you on your prize amount.
PokerProZone gave Twister poker a try and having loaded up 6 tables we managed to break even over the 20 minute session. We played at the $10 buy in amounts (more in hope really at having a chance of playing for a huge jackpot prize!) but we were only offered jackpot amounts of $20 x 4, $40 x 1 and $60 x 1. Winning the $40 and one $20 buy in was a pleasing feeling.
There was a certain level of disappointment as we waited eagerly for the wheel of fortune to drop on a huge jackpot amount .. only for it to fall repeatedly on the $20 amount (in comparison to the possibilities of the top prizes).
With 6 tables we had a lot of action and were tested with some big decisions throughout the game play. Our verdict is that bet365 have introduced an exciting and fast paced Sit and Go poker game type to complement their existing repertoire of games.
