PokerStars is welcoming the New Year with a couple of promotions that are sure to satisfy both cash game and tournament players. For those grinding out cash games, PokerStars has chosen to hold a reload bonus. For its tournament players, they will be hosting The Million Dollar Challenge: The Head Hunt.
PokerStars is offering its players a reload bonus to ring in the New Year with some extra money. All players are eligible for a 25% deposit bonus for up to $150 or €100. Players must deposit by January 10, 2010 and use the code “2010.” Players must clear the bonus after making the deposit. To clear the bonus, a player must earn 20 VPPs for every dollar or 28 VPPs for every Euro of bonus. This calculates to 3,000 VPPs needed to clear the entire $150 or 2,800 VPPs to clear the €100 of bonus.
Also, to celebrate the Million Dollar Challenge TV Show (the most popular TV show of all time), PokerStars is holding a bounty tournament with a $100,000 guaranteed prize pool. Players will be awarded with money for knocking out their favorite Team PokerStars Pros. For example, knock out Daniel Negreanu and win $1,000. Knock out Vanessa Rousso, Chris Moneymaker, Barry Greenstein, or Joe Cada and win $750. This tournament will take place at 19:00 ET, January 4, 2010 and have a buy-in of $10+$1. Satellites are available and some satellites are totally free! This tournament is only available to residents of the United States or Canada.
Be sure to play on PokerStars and take advantage of these amazing promotions. Make 2010 your year in poker!
