Online poker players who enjoy completing missions and taking a shot at some big bonus cash in the process should click their way over to PokerStars for a new Mission Weeks promotion that is running now until March 1.
A grand total of $400,000 in prizes is on the line for players who choose to accept the Missions at hand. Those who successfully complete their personal challenges will receive tickets to any of eight $50,000 All-In Shootouts that take place on March 2 and promise $5,000 to the winner.
To begin, players need to click on the “Challenges” window found in the PokerStars lobby. Hitting the start button means you have accepted the assignment and are ready to proceed.
There are three separate Missions: Mission Play runs from Feb. 16-22; Mission Win from Feb. 23-March 1; and Bonus Mission runs the entire length of the promo, Feb. 16-March 1. You must click Start on each Mission for your results to count.
The Missions vary from playing 250 real-money ring game hands to playing in a dozen Sit N Gos during Mission Play. The Missions increase in difficulty in Mission Win where you have to complete tasks such as winning 10 ring game hands at showdown or winning two Sit N Gos at 6-man tables.
The Bonus Mission requires players to complete the challenges in both Mission Play and Mission Win. Players are free to choose the Missions they wish to complete based on their favorite games from among Spin N Gos, Sit N Gos, ring games, Zoom Poker or tournament play.
Upon completing a Mission, players will receive All-in Shootout tickets within two hours. Registration to the All-in Shootouts is required, but being present during the tournaments on March 2 is not. Players are all-in on every hand.
A 60,000-player cap is set for each All-in Shootout and no late registration is permitted. In other words, complete the mission and register upon receiving the ticket to avoid getting shut out.
Your Missions await at PokerStars. Do you accept the challenge?
