Buying and rebuying into your favorite ring games just got a whole lot easier.
First, set your Default Buy-In to choose your buy-in preference for any ring game you enter. You may set your preferred buy-in between 20 and 255 Big Blinds for No-Limit and Pot-Limit games and 5 and 255 Big Bets for Limit games. Your Default Buy-In will then appear in the “Other amount” section of the “Get Chips” window. If you prefer to buy-in for an amount other than your default buy-in, you may enter a new buy-in amount in the window and click OK.
Then, never miss a hand again by activating the Ring Game Auto-Rebuy feature. Choose between rebuying for the minimum allowed at the table, or a custom setting where you decide how much to rebuy for each time – between 20 and 255 Big Blinds for No-Limit and Pot-Limit games and 5 and 255 Big Bets for Limit games.
Open the “Options” menu in the game lobby and select “Set Buy-In Preferences” to set your Default Buy-In Preference and your Auto-Rebuy Preference.
You never know when a hand is going to be a big winner. So make sure you don’t miss a second of the action by taking advantage of this great new feature and setting your Buy-In Preferences.
Heads-Up Sit & Go Rematches
Sometimes you finish Heads-Up Sit & Go and want an immediate rematch. Now you can have it thanks to our new Heads-Up Sit & Go Rematch feature. Once your Sit & Go has finished, a message will appear asking if you’d like to play again.
Just click the Accept button and do battle all over again.

Knockout Bounty Tournaments
It's time to deliver a knockout blow.
We're proud to introduce Knockout Bounty Tournaments. Everyone loves to knock another player out of a tournament. Now you can get paid for it.
Here's how it works - Knockout Bounty tournaments will follow the same rules as standard tournaments, except that the buy-in will be split between contributing to the prize pool and creating a bounty on each player. For example, a Knockout Bounty tournament with a buy-in of $10+$1 will have $8 going to the prize pool and $2 as a bounty on each player. When you knock a player out of a tournament, the bounty money will be immediately credited to your account and the following message will appear:
All you have to do is look out for tournaments with the K symbol next to them in the Tournament Lobby:
Take extra pleasure in knocking out your opponents. Play in a Knockout Bounty tournament and get paid for more than just finishing in the money. Go for a knockout blow today!
