We investigate the repeated and sequential portfolio St. Petersburg games. For the repeated St. Petersburg game, we show an upper bound on the tail distribution, which implies a strong law for a truncation. Moreover, we consider the problem of limit distribution. For the sequential portfolio St. Petersburg game, we obtain tight asymptotic results for the growth rate of the game.
