Tournament add-ons (desktop)

During a poker rebuy tournament, there may also be an add-on available at the end of the rebuy period.

  • Typically, this will be during the first break.
  • An add-on is just one extra rebuy.
  • In general, the add-on is available no matter how many chips you have.
  • The add-on will not be automatically offered to you.

There are multiple ways to take the add-on:

  1. Wait for the message that Players are now on break. Click on the table chip tray and select the Add More Chips option. Some table themes do not include the dealer tray and in that case, you can access the menu by clicking on Options at the top of the table. If you use the Mercury table theme, you can click on Table to access the same menu.
  2. Select the Auto Add-On option and the add-on will automatically be applied as soon as the add-on break starts and all hands are over.
  3. On a mobile device, tap on the Menu button at the top of the table and select Add More Chips.

You can also preselect the Automatically Add-on during Add-on period option (desktop software only) by going to:

  1. Settings
  2. Buy-In / Rebuy
  3. Auto Rebuy (Tournaments)

Make sure you click on Apply Changes to validate your choice.

This will take place during the Add-on period only (usually available during the first break).

The add-on may cost any amount, but generally costs the same as the original buy-in, and gets you the same, or a higher number of chips that you got for your original buy-in. Add-ons are also charged a small amount.

The prize pool and payoffs will not be announced until the add-on period ends since the prize pool increases with each add-on.
