PokerStars' $1m giveaway

Friday, 2 August 2013

August is VIP Club Month at PokerStars and the site is celebrating by giving away $1m in cash bonuses and seats into next month's World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP).

PokerStars players who win freerolls or earn enough points for SilverStar VIP status throughout this month will be awarded tickets for the $1 million VIP Giveaway, which will run from September 2-6. The format of the giveaway will be five ‘no-skill’ tournaments where players will be ‘all-in’ every hand until there is a winner.

Over $1 million in tens of thousands of prizes will be split across the five tournaments, with more than $200,000 up for grabs in each prize draw contest. In total more than $400,000 in WCOOP tickets will be given away and $600,000 in cash prizes.

PokerStars has a whole host of other VIP activities scheduled for August in the run up to the $1 million VIP Giveaway. Ways that players increase their status include:

Happy Hours – earn points and status 50% faster from August 5-11
VIP trivia freeroll satellites – answer questions to win entry into the $1 million VIP Giveaway (August 12-18)
VIP store sale – up to 90% off selected items in the VIP Store
VIP satellite to WCOOP – the ‘VIP Bash’ satellite on August 31, which can only be entered by SilverStar VIP players and above, will award 100 tickets to WCOOP, with super satellite buy-ins starting from just 5 FPPs

“This is the first time that PokerStars has run this sort of promotional tournament, and will make for a fun sweat as players log on and watch to see how far they go and what they win,” read a statement from the site.
