PokerStars 10th Anniversary: Extra! Extra! And Extra!
Just moments ago, I revealed PokerStars is about to give away $1 million in the Ring Game Leaderboard promotion, part of its 10th Anniversary celebrations. Now, more news has just landed on the PokerStars Blog newsdesk. Actually, it's not one but three pieces of news goodness. Here goes:
1. $0.10 Trivia Tourneys
Running from December 1 through 18, PokerStars will stage 100 Trivia Tourneys with a buy-in of just $0.10. The catch is, and this explains the proliferation of 'PokerStars 10th Anniversary Review' posts on this blog throughout November, each tourney will be announced with just 30 minutes' notice, and players will have to answer a trivia question to enter.
The answer to all the questions will be a year, and all answers can be found among the Review posts we have published and will continue to publish throughout November. Using the search box on the top of this page will quickly find the answer you are looking for.
PokerStars is guaranteeing a prize pool of $1,000 for each of the 100 Trivia Tourneys, so with a buy-in of just $0.10, expect plenty of value.
2. $10,000 Class Freerolls
More free money! On December 10, PokerStars will run 10 separate freeroll tournaments, one for every full year that PokerStars has been running since 2001. Each has a prize pool of $10,000 plus a 2012 PCA package worth $15,780 to the winner.
To get your free seat in the tournament for the year in which you registered your PokerStars account, simply earn 1 VIP Player Point (VPP) any time in November. Tickets will then be credited to eligible players from December 1-7. The tournaments will be located in the Lobby Events>>10th Anniversary>>All.
3. Special Edition VIP Store Items
You'll need to be quick on this one. For a limited time only, the VIP Store will be stocking special items celebrating PokerStars' 10th anniversary. These include caps, unisex t-shirts and souvenir card protectors, all for discount prices. These items will no doubt sell out fast, so make sure you visit the '10th Anniversary' category in the VIP Store from December 1 when the items become available.
