PokerStars has achieved yet another milestone and has decided to celebrate the best way it knows how – by giving back to the players who have made ‘Stars the world’s top poker site.
The celebration is in honor of the 100 millionth player opening up an account at a site belonging to the PokerStars family, which includes Full Tilt and the PokerStars ring-fenced offerings in countries such as Spain, France and Italy. That player, ‘ArtiB73,’ created an account at PokerStars.fr a few days ago and kicked into gear a promotion that will last the entire month of February and dole out millions of dollars!
The PokerStars 100 Million Celebration begins on Monday, February 1 and will run through the 29th. Remember, 2016 is a Leap Year that adds another day to the calendar in February. It also adds another day to PokerStars’ celebration!
There are three ways to win throughout February in the PokerStars 100M Celebration, and here they are listed below!
VIP Steps Challenges
Running from February 1-14, players will complete steps in the VIP Steps Challenges in order to earn StarsCoin. That’s the new currency at PokerStars since the 1st of the year. StarsCoin can be swapped at the VIP store for luxury items, tournament tickets, or cash.
More than 100,000,000 (100 million) StarsCoin will be rewarded to players throughout the two-week period. That’s over $1 million in value. Completing three VIP Steps can be worth up to 1,000,000 StarsCoin, while players that complete 10 VIP Steps can win as much as 2,000,000 StarsCoin.
In order to begin, open your Challenges window to ‘Start.’ The progress bar allows you to keep track of your advancement toward completing the steps. Instant rewards will be distributed randomly upon completion of each VIP Steps Challenge.
PokerStars Milestone Challenges
For the next 15 days, February 15-29, players must complete daily challenges that are related to milestones in PokerStars’ storied history. Once you click ‘Start,’ 24 hours are allowed to complete that day’s gold or silver challenge. Completion will result in a random reward running the gamut of a ticket to a $10,000 All-in Shootout to $100,000 in cold, hard cash.
What might those milestones be tied to, you ask? Memorable events such as the birth of the Sunday Million in 2006, Zoom Poker’s arrival in 2013, and last year’s making of 13 millionaires at the Spin & Go tables.
The cash game challenges must be played at stakes of at least $0.05/$0.10, excluding heads-up action. Tournament challenges are completed at Sit & Go, Spin & Go, MTT and satellites with a minimum buy-in of $1.
$100,000 Added VIP Club Tournament
On Saturday, February 27 at 17:15 ET, just 50 StarsCoin will allow you to gain entry to a $100,000 Added VIP Club Tournament. Buy your seat to this special event at the VIP store by using the StarsCoin earned while taking on the month’s previous challenges!
One-hundred million registered players. We here at PokerUpdate extend a hearty congratulations to PokerStars on reaching this incredible milestone!
