How to take part in The Ultimate Challenge

  1. Open the PokerStars client or Mobile app and opt-in for The Ultimate Challenge using Star Code ‘ULTIMATE’ (see below for more on using Star Codes). No deposit is required to claim The Ultimate Challenge bonus, and you can do so at any time from January 15 to 23:59 ET, January 23.
  2. As soon as the Star Code is processed, The Ultimate Challenge bonus will become active. You will be notified via a pop-up in the client about The Ultimate Challenge bonus offer you have been awarded, and how many VIP Player Points (VPPs) you need to earn to release the cash bonus in full. Each player will be given a bonus of $10-$1,000 depending on their best performing VPP month of 2014.
  3. You can track the progress of your The Ultimate Challenge bonus in the ‘Cashier’ under ‘My Bonus Status’ in the PokerStars desktop client. No VPPs earned prior to claiming your bonus will count towards The Ultimate Challenge bonus completion. Please Note: You can claim and complete The Ultimate Challenge bonus when playing on mobile or tablet devices, but you cannot track your progress there.
  4. When you reach the VPP target set for your The Ultimate Challenge bonus you will instantly be credited with your cash reward. You have 30 days from the day you claim your bonus to earn the VPPs needed to release The Ultimate Challenge bonus in full.
