Four years is a long time to wait for all the excitement and action that's on its way to PokerStars right now. PokerStars always has a celebration ready to roll you into a big pile of cash if you're up for the challenge and the Football Fever promotion promises not to disappoint! Of course the celebration is wrapped around the 2014 FIFA World Cup — and of course you are invited!
Football Fever at PokerStars has over $1.7 million on the table! If you aren't ready to get in for your share of the action, call your doctor in the morning and tell him you are S-I-C-K! We know you're ready so let's get right to the how-tos.
Daily Football Fever Missions
PokerStars is giving you more than one way to get in and scramble for big bucks. The PokerStars Football Fever daily missions could be your best bet if you love poker and football.
Every day when you log into the PokerStars lobby, you can check the available missions and once you've put the finishing touches on them, you receive a ticket to an all-in shootout freeroll.
How does football come into play? You have choices. Your ticket will be good for one of three freerolls for a match yet to be played. When you enter a tournament with your ticket, you are also choosing one of the following: Team A wins, Team B wins, or tie.
Make the right choice and you — along with everyone else that selected the correct tournament — will get a chance at a share of $10,000. Check this out...the lucky winner gets $1,000!
If you know your football and poker, you can opt in to a special bonus mission where a ticket to a $100,000 all-in freeroll is the prize. Win that freeroll and you also win $10,000! That special bonus mission requires that you complete 10 missions, you can do that without even breaking a sweat!
Get a Share of $225,000 in the Football Fever Missions Week
As the World Cup turns up the heat, the steam keeps building the rewards at PokerStars. You have three separate paths from July 7th to July 13th where you can win a free ticket to one of three $75,000 all-in shootout freerolls that kick off on July 16th. The winner of each freeroll will pick up an incredible $7,500 in their PokerStars account.
The three paths to get a free ticket:
- Ring Game Mission - Play 200 Real Money Ring Game hands (ZOOM
- Scheduled Tournament Mission - Play 7 Real Money Scheduled
- Sit & Go Mission - Play 10 Real Money Sit & Go’s
Win a Share of $1 Million in the Football Fever Phase Tourney
PokerStars is hosting at least five $27 buy-in phase one tournaments a day — if you have chips at the end of Phase 1, you are automatically entered into a Phase 2 tournament on July 6th at 12:25 ET.
Make it to Phase 2 and you will be competing against others that have made it to Phase 2. The winner of the event will take home at least $100,000 of the $1 million or more in the prize pool!
The great news for those of you that like softer competition is that this tournament coincides with the World Series of Poker Main Event and many of the pros will be in Las Vegas instead of seated at your table.
How Phased Tournaments Work
PokerStars Phased tournaments are a bit unique. Phase 1 gives you a number of flights to play your way to a Phase 2 tournament — there you'll find other players who have made it through the Phase 1 tournament with chips.
If you don't make it to the end of Phase 1, simply re-enter and try again. If you do make it to Phase 2, and aren't pleased with your chip count, you cannot re-enter Phase 1.
Keep in mind that you want to enter Phase 2 with as many chips as possible, so...if Phase 1 is ending and you are short chips, send your stack in, otherwise you'll be taking it to Phase 2. If you go bust, start all over in a new Phase 1 tournament.
Custom Made Avatars
PokerStars will allow you to pick a custom made football avatar displaying your team's national colors during the World Cup. As long as your team is alive in the World Cup, your avatar will be on display.
