PokerStars has launched a unique promotion that has similarities to the popular Spin & Go jackpot tournaments that it runs on its site.
The Mega Bonus runs for four weeks until August 23 and is activated we players deposit at least $25 using the bonus code MEGABONUS during each promotional period. Once the deposit is made, a random Mega Bonus is awarded with prizes ranging from a ticket to a $100,000 All-In Shootout to cash amounts of between $5 and $100,000.
PokerStars Mega Bonus Schedule
|Week One||3:00pm on July 27 through 3:00pm on August 2|
|Week Two||5:00am on August 3 through 5:00am on August 9|
|Week Three||5:00am on August 10 through 5:00am on August 16|
|Week Four||5:00am on August 17 through 5:00am on August 23|
Should a player’s random Mega Bonus be a $100,000 All-in Shootout ticket, they can enter any of the next available tournaments. These tournaments take place at 6:47pm UK time on August 3, 10, 17 and 24, award $100,000 in cash including $10,000 to the eventual winner.
As the name suggests, the All-in Shootouts place the entrants all-in every hand, leaving the result in the hands of Lady Luck.
While securing a cash bonus is less likely than winning an All-in Shootout ticket, there is still a 25% chance of being given $5 in cash and 15% of scooping $10. The $100,000 cash prize may only have a 0.001% chance of being won, but it is still a chance nonetheless.
