The Internet’s biggest poker site is trying to entice sports fanatics to download PokerStars with their latest promotion called “Game of Your Life”. The grand prize gets you (and any number of friends) front row seats to any sporting event in the world! With all your travel and accommodation costs taken care of, this prize package is worth $100,000.
The best feature of this promotion is the fact that you do not need any sort of bankroll to participate. Everyday until May 21st there will be five freerolls to choose from, and these freerolls award seats to one of the $100,000 Freeroll Finals. There are also FPP qualifiers to the $100k Freeroll Finals. You need to pay 10 FPPs to participate.
There are six $100k Freeroll Finals between April 17th and May 22nd. You must participate in the Grand Final and take first place in order to win the Game of Your Life package. The top finishers in the Grand Final that do not win the Game of Your Life package will split $10k in cash as a consolation prize.
Keep in mind that you are only allowed to enter one freeroll per week, even though they are available five times per day. You might want to consider saving your entry for the end of the week because field sizes might be smaller, giving you a better chance of making it to a $100k Freeroll Final. If you run really good every week in the preliminary freeroll, you could potentially play in all six Freeroll Finals!
Another thing to keep in mind is that you are not competing against the entire world in this promotion. PokerStars has one Game of Your Life package for North/South/Central America and another Game of Your Life package for the rest of the world. This dramatically increases your odds of winning the big prize!
If there is a sports event that you have always dreamed of attending, this is your big chance to attend in style with as many people as you choose. To give yourself the best shot of winning, you should definitely seek some poker training before playing these tournaments. Visit the FTR poker forum for help with strategy and hand histories, and then best of luck at the tables!
