How Knockout Poker works

Knockout Poker tournaments are special MTT and Sit & Go tournaments where the prize money is split, with a part going to the overall prize pool, and the other part distributed among players for each opponent they knock out.

Unlike traditional MTTs and Sit & Go’s, you don’t need to finish in the money to earn a cash prize. You can boost your bankroll every time you knock out an opponent during each Knockout Poker tournament.

To get started, select ‘KO Poker’ tab in the main game lobby. Choose between ‘Sit&KO’ and ‘KO Tournaments’ via the available tabs, then your game type, buy-in and game speed. When you’re ready, click the ‘Register’ button, and start to KO the competition!

For more details, follow the instructions below (desktop only):

Once you have chosen your buy-in and the game type you want to play, you will be seated at a tournament table.

As soon as you knock out a player (or players) you will get a notification at the table telling you how many players you have eliminated, and how much you’ve won as a cash prize.

Knockout Poker structures and buy-ins

Knockout Poker tournaments are offered in a wide range of formats, including Turbo, Hyper-Turbo and Regular.
