Interested in winning an all-expenses paid poker trip to EPT Prague? Want to freeroll your way through some sports bets? How about a Formula One sweat? All that is waiting in the upcoming promotion being put on by PokerStars and BetStars.
The Big Race tournament
The Big Race is a $2 buy-in tournament with a motor-sports theme, serving as a lead-up to the highly anticipated Russian Grand Prix on Sept. 30. The tournament will kick off on Sunday, Sept. 23 at 2:00 p.m. ET and the top 20 players will be randomly assigned a driver in the Formula One race.
The player with the winning driver will receive an EPT Prague package valued at €7,200 which includes eight nights at the Hilton Prague Hotel, a €5,300 EPT Main Event entry, and €500 in spending money for the prestigious event that runs from Dec. 7-18.
In addition to this lucky winner, 500 more players will walk away with between $2 and $50 in free sports bets through BetStars. That's $2,500 worth of free bets up for grabs in a $2 tournament.

Previous Big Race Winner
This isn't the first time that The Stars Group has put together a race-themed tournament. Earlier this year, PokerStars ran a $2 horse-themed tournament with the same premise, and Chris Hopgood got a sweat of a lifetime after finishing in the top places of the poker tournament. When "Native River" crossed the finish line ahead of the field, Hopgood secured himself a poker vacation to PokerStars Festival Marbella, a package valued at £3,000 - not bad for a $2 investment.
At the time of his win, the recreational poker player from Wimbledon reacted: "I can't believe I've won! Now I'm off to Marbella all for $2! I'm nervous but very excited to get to play in my first big live tournament! Native River will be a horse that I will never forget."
