Free Off-the-Felt Activities For PokerStars Players

Hopefully, you will be too bust winning bags of money to have time to enjoy the off-the-felt activities, but they are waiting for you if not! PokerStars is running several activities during the festival, including a catamaran trip, jetskiing, and the classic Beerpong tournament. IN addition, there is an open bar and snacks for all PokerStars players at Hugos Terrace on June 25 where players can let their hair down and party the night away.
