Online poker giant PokerStars has made its next move in its expansion strategy by launching a new range of Spin & Go services for Omaha.

Pot Limit Omaha games will comprise of buy-in levels of $1, $3, $7 and $15 and operate under the lottery-style Sit-and-Go format.

Players will begin the game with 500 chips and be part of a randomly drawn prize pool worth between two and 10,000 times their buy-in.

“Omaha is a highly enjoyable poker variant and was quite high up on our players' request list to deliver it as a Spin & Go,” PokerStars’ director of poker operations and innovation, Severin Rasset, said.

Lex Veldhuis, a Pro member of Team PokerStars, added: “Omaha is just perfect for Spin & Go; there will be a lot of action because you can play so many hands, but it's also really hard to knock people out in PLO.

“This will make for some very intense situations when the multipliers get high.”

On paper, this appears like a smart move by PokerStars. However, one has to wait and watch as to what dividends this new move fetches the company in the long run.
