  • PokerStars Runs 10 Promotions for 10th Anniversary

    Wednesday, November 9th, 2011 by Ryan

PokerStars is one of the largest and most popular online poker sites in the game today. If you find people talking about online poker, the conversation will probably in some way turn back to the massive online poker site. Even after Black Friday took a hit to the online poker site, they have still rebounded very well, and are running strong. Way back in 2001 the site started offering many different online poker games, and after ten years in business; the site has decided to reward players in a different way for the ten year anniversary. They will kick off a series of ten different events with excellent guarantees and prize packages for their players. We’ll take a look at a few of the events that have been announced for the anniversary special.

*$10 Million Sunday Million*

The Sunday Million is probably the largest online poker tournament online right now, and on one specific Sunday it will be quite a bit larger than normal. For the anniversary, it will now be a $10 million guaranteed tournament, which will be played at 2:30pm ET on December 18th. The buy-in is set at $215, and huge prize pool will guarantee that the winner of the event will take home at least $2 million for their efforts. And for those who aren’t high dollar players, there will be a ton of satellites offered, so that you have quite a few ways to get into the event.

*10th Anniversary Giveaway*

This giveaway will have to do with the 2012 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, and will run over the span of one month. The best part about these events is that there will be 100 prize packages given, and the satellites for the events will either be $0.10 buy-in, freerolls, or 10 Frequent Player Point (FPP), so all players get the chance to get into the action. Top finishers move on to the final qualifiers which will take place once a week. These tournaments will run incredibly often, with the $0.10 tournaments running once per hour, the freerolls running every ten minutes, and the FPP tournaments will run once per hour as well.

*World Record Tournament*

This event will appeal to almost every poker player out there. The tournament features a $1 buy-in, and has $250k guaranteed in the pool, with a $50k first prize as well. The idea behind this event is that the online poker site is going to make a push to break their own world record. The record was set back in 2009, and featured 149,196 total players enter the tournament. The event will run for an incredibly long time if you are lucky enough to make the deep run, and will kick off on December 4th.

It’ll be interesting to see what other promotions that PokerStars releases for their anniversary, but one thing that’s for sure is that they are offering promotions that make sure to get every type of player involved. Anyone from recreational players, to mid-stakes players, to high stakes players will all have great incentive to take part in these promos. The final seven promotions will be released soon, and we’ll keep you updated on what they are.
