Back in the good ol' days before the ticket-in/ticket-out slot machines, there were people who attempted to game the system by using worthless metal slugs to take their shot at riches. The idea is, you risk nothing for a chance at a big win. Let's just say this: that was wrong. It was unethical. And it was the type of thing that might land you in a back room. Don't try this at your home casino.
But, you still want a no-risk shot at riches? Well, do we have a deal for you! Today, PokerStars announced it will be giving away free $3.30 MicroMillions III tournament tickets to anyone who deposits at least $20 using the code MICRO between now and November 14.
if you've not been paying close attention this year, the MicroMillions is PokerStars' 100-event tournament series that give low-rolling players a way to play a big tournament for big money. To wit: the main event has a $22 buy-in (the biggest of the festival) and it guarantees $150,000 to first place. So, there's that. There are all kinds of events you can use that $3.30 ticket to play, but the one that may tickle your fancy the most is a $3.30 mega satellite to the $1 million guaranteed main event.
So, in short, you deposit $20 with the right code--risk free!--and you get a ticket that could end up with you winning $150,000 or more. It's that simlple.

And, seriously, don't try that thing with the slot machines. We like you too much to see anything bad happen to you.
