Payout Structure

After five minutes of game-play the tournament will end and all surviving players will be paid out. With 48 players in each tournament the stack sizes add up to a total of 240,00 chips in play.

The prize pool after fees are deducted is $43.20 at buy-in level $0.90 + $0.10.

The system then cleverly calculates what each players payout will be based on their remaining chip stack size when the countdown timer has ended.

The SNG tournament uses the following formula to calculate the payout: (your chip stack / 240,000) x $43.20 = your payout

EG: if you finish the tournament with 20,000 chips:

20,000 / 240,000 = 0.0833
0.0833 x $43.20 = $3.60
