The KO series is a tournament series of the extremely popular "Progressive Knockout" (PKO) format, where everyone starts with a bounty on their head. When knocked out of the tournament, part of this bounty is awarded immediately to the winning player in the knockout hand and the other part is placed on the head of that same player (the player winning the bounty). This means that by the final stages of the tournament there are some huge bounties on the remaining players' heads.
Running from 03.02.2019 until 17.02.2019, the series includes 376 tournaments across 15 days, with buy-ins starting at just $2.20 and a total guaranteed prizepool of more than $15,000,000!
Here's the key information:
- Dates: 03.02.2019 - 17.02.2019
- Total GTD: $15,000,000

Are you afraid of the bubble? We know what it feels like to play in a tournament, do well and reach the final stages. Then, right at the most critical point, you get unlucky and all of the sudden you're out of the tournament, just before the money! In this series, you don't need to fear this scenario, because you're getting bubble insurance!
Any bwin player who finishes in the "bubble" position of a tournament (the last position before the winning positions), will receive a cash bonus same as the prize won by the next player who finishes in the tournament.
Here's how it works:
- Simply play in any KO Series tournament and bring your best game to the tables.
- Should you happen to "bubble" one or more tournaments, you'll still get the prize money for the last paying place.
- We will credit your account within 48 hours from the completion of the tournament.
- Your prize will be cash and it won't come with any wagering restrictions.
During the KO series, a special Sit & Go Jackpot format with a buy-in of $2.50 will be available, offering KO series tickets and cash prizes.
As with our usual Sit & Go Jackpot tables, these three-handed, fast-paced games are ramped up by a multiplier, ranging from x2 up to x420 your buy-in!
|Multiplier||Frequency (per 1,000,000)||1st prize|
|x13.2||16,000||$33 KO series ticket|
|x22||4,000||$55 KO series ticket|
|x43.6||2,000||$109 KO series ticket|
