Steps Sit & Go Tournaments

Steps Structure Updates


Steps have been modified to ensure there are no longer any ‘step downs’ present in the system. Now, when you play a Steps tournament and cash, you’ll either win a ticket to the next Step up, a retry of the current Step, or an amount of T-Money. See the tables below for more.
