How to take part in the MC HotDog Poker Challenge

There are five MC HotDog Poker Challenge freerolls running every night from September 22-December 31, between 19:30-23:30 Taiwan Time. Each freeroll awards the top 27 finishers with tickets for a range of PokerStars online tournaments, while the winner of each freeroll will be awarded a ticket to a special Monthly Final.

The MC HotDog Poker Challenge Monthly Finals will award further tournament tickets, as well as all-inclusive trips to play in the Macau Poker Cup in early 2015. Players can qualify for a Monthly Final by winning a nightly freeroll, playing at least 30 nightly freerolls in a month, or by making a real money deposit (see below).

With over 13,000 free tickets to be won, the nightly freerolls provide the perfect opportunity for players in Taiwan to improve their poker skills. You can play as many freerolls as you like, and if you find yourself at the same table as MC HotDog, he’ll have a $10 bounty on his head!
