And it doesn't keep on giving because you can give one to your girlfriend, spouse, kid, german shepherd, husband (hey, guys like monkeys, too) or boss (as a suck-up gift) and they will all love you forever.
It doesn't keep on giving because you can use it as a good luck charm. It IS, after all, from PokerStars.
And it doesn't keep on giving because it's the cutest thing in the world.
No, it's a gift that could give you get you 100,000 Frequent Player Points. The monkey only costs you 1,000 FPPs, so that's not a bad parlay.
Here's how it works. The monkey won't just hand you 100,000 FPPs. That's, um, a lot of bananas. You have to work for it. Here's how it works.
First, download PokerStars now and you'll get a 100 percent matching bonus up to $600. You must enter the marketing code of POKERWORKS upon registration and the bonus code of STARS600 upon your first deposit.
All right. Then play enough to get 1,000 VPPs. That's it, and fortunately it shouldn't take you that long.
Once you've done that, order the monkey. This is, of course, a no-lose proposition since it's so darn cute.
Then grab your camera and take a picture of your monkey in any and all interesting places you know. PokerStars even suggests on top of a mountain, which, of course, I am all for - how do you think I got my name?
E-mail up to three of your best pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org - seriously - and the site will post them all on a page. If your pictures are voted as some of the best by other players, you win the points, and you get to keep the monkey.
There are also prizes for second (50,000 points), third (25,000) and three discretionary prizes of 10,000 points each. And remember, this is a cuddly, sweet monkey, so inappropriate pictures will NOT be accepted.
This promotion ends April 1, so stop monkeying around and make your way to PokerStars today.
