The major benefit of participating in a satellite tournament is that it gives you the chance to play in higher stakes events with a minimal buy-in. For novice and recreational players whose bankrolls do not allow them to play even the cheapest tournament events, satellites offer a unique chance to win a seat at a very affordable cost.

I think bounty satellites is not a good idea because the places for next qualifying there are fewer. Maybe it's an idea that will make the players to use the rewards for other games and this is very ugly. We will see how good are these games and if they will gather players.

I saw this yesterday and am still trying to decide whether i think it is a good idea. Maybe having bounties as part of the satellite structure gives more people more choice of how to play and the chance to recoup some of your buy in to re buy or play again by winning bounties. Hmm. Time to think this one through yet. Would love to hear what you all think of it.

Well as I can see again, they keep getting more new things every day to see if they can attract more people to their xdd games but this is good because the truth is if they hopefully they would do it in other types of games as well since I think we are all attracted when there are promotions or new things to try

I think you're right, many of us think that the offers benefit us but at the end of the day it's they who win as many more people bring their games with the offers that they make xd but I think we're all attracted to a good offer already be it for theirs or not hahaha

An interesting concept here. It will draw players for sure. You may not end up winning a ticket through the satellite, but you can still make money out of it. And when the bubble is out, you get to keep all the bounties you have won. So you can get a ticket for free, plus winning money on top of it.

Certainly interesting and it will attract a few players, but I think in the end this cost players more. It would most likely require a lot of bounties to get anywhere near the same amount as a ticket value. Sure, reduces variance for players but that also means more money is spent paying the rakes, which means more revenue for the site.
I wouldn't touch this format with a 10 inch stick, but I can understand how it appeals to others.z
