Deal Making

Who doesn’t love making a deal?  When you take advantage of our Deal Making feature at the final table of a multi-table tournament, you and your opponents can negotiate to split the prize money as you all see fit. It’s an equitable way to end the action without throwing in the towel.

Deal Making is entirely optional.  You will find the feature available at the final table of scheduled multi-table tournaments if late registration is closed and the number of payouts in the tournament is equal to or greater than the number of seats at the final table.  You can even make a deal in a KO MTT, but bounties are excluded from the deal amounts and each player will keep their bounty at the time of the deal.

How it works

If you are ready to deal, just click the “I Want a Deal” button at the final table.  This button will appear in place of the “Live Dealer Blackjack” button at eligible final tables.  Once the first hand begins at the final table, all players will see the deal instructions dialog box.

When a player clicks the “I Want a Deal” button, the circle surrounding their avatar will turn green and an animation will appear on the table.

After all players have clicked the “I Want a Deal” button, they will see a message that reads, “All players would like to make a deal.  After this hand, the tournament will be paused and players may review the terms of the deal.”

When the hand ends, the tournament will pause and all players will see the deal prompt.  Observers will see a blank table along with the message “Players are deciding whether to make a deal.”

Players will have 120 seconds to click on the “Accept this deal” or “No deal right now” button before the timer elapses.  If one or more players isn’t interested in a deal, all players will see a message indicating “The deal is not accepted by all players.  Play will resume in 20 seconds.”

If everyone accepts the deal, you’ll see a message indicating that a deal has been accepted along with how much you’ve won (including any applicable bounties in a KO).  We’ll also update the list of winners in the tournament lobby to reflect the deal.
