The final Saturday of each month is a special day for PokerStars players who can enter one of four tournaments and aim for prize money totaling $155,000.
The last Saturday of every month will henceforth be known as VIP Super Saturdays at PokerStars, with players allowed to join and play in the tournament corresponding to their specific status in the site’s loyalty program. The prize pools are larger for the upper VIP levels, so players have all month to shoot for making the next level and competing in freerolls with bigger prize money.
Starting Times by VIP Status
Action gets underway at 9:00 a.m. ET on Saturday, May 28 with the BronzeStar VIP Tournament that guarantees $5,000 in prize money. The BronzeStar event is the only one of the four that requires a buy-in, albeit a paltry entry fee of 7 StarsCoin.
Next up will be ChromeStar players who will be vying for $20,000 GTD in the ChromeStar Freeroll that kicks off at 11:00 a.m. Players with SilverStar status start 1 and 1/2 hours later at 12:30 p.m. in the $30,000 SilverStar Freeroll. And finally, the GoldStar Freeroll at 2:00 p.m. will pay out a whopping $100,000 to PokerStars’ upper tier players.
VIP Bash Provides More Value
VIP Super Saturdays will also feature VIP Bash tournaments. Those added value events can be entered not with cash, but by using the StarsCoin collected in your account.
Get ready for the first VIP Super Saturday later this month, and remember to mark your calendar on subsequent months. PokerStars players are encouraged to click on ‘Online Events,’ followed by ‘Saturday Line-Up’ and ‘VIP Super Saturday’ to register.
$60,000 Poker Cash Giveaway
While $155,000 will be won by players on VIP Super Saturdays, PokerStars is doling out another $60,000 every month in its Poker Cash Giveaway promotion. Four free tournaments each offering $500 in prize money are played every day of the month and are open to players who have secured a ticket.
Two tickets are available to all players every month simply by claiming them with a Star Code. The code for this month is ‘MAY2016.’ To earn more tickets, just make a deposit each week or complete various Daily Challenges.
The $500 Poker Cash Giveaway tournaments begin at 9:47 a.m. ET with an All-in Shootout, followed at 12:47 p.m. with a Zoom Turbo Freeroll. A Hyper-Turbo Freeroll starts at 2:47 p.m., and the last daily Poker Cash Giveaway tournament is a Heads-up Turbo Freeroll at 4:47 p.m.
That’s $215,000 in free prize money every month to PokerStars players in the VIP Super Saturdays and Poker Cash Giveaway promos. Make sure you get in on the action and boost your bankroll every month.
