Complete your challenges and win a share of $15,000 every day!

PokerStars is helping you kick-start 2014 by giving away more than $500,000 in cash and over 10,000 exclusive gifts! There are simple challenges running every day from January 2-31, and all you have to do to take part is opt-in using the Star Code ‘CHALLENGE’ - use the buttons below to opt-in now via the desktop client or via your mobile or tablet device.

Complete your daily challenge and you’ll win a ticket to a Daily Challenge All-in Shootout, where there’s $15,000 on the line, including $1,000 for the winner. You don’t even need to play the tournament to win a prize, as all players who register in advance will be all-in every hand until there’s a winner.

The more challenges you complete, the more All-in Shootouts you can enter, and the more prizes you can win! Complete 10 or more Daily Challenges and you will also be awarded a ticket to the ‘Final Challenge All-in Shootout’, with a $100,000 added prize pool and 10,000 exclusive PokerStars gifts.

How to take part in the January Daily Challenge

1. Opt-in using Star Code ‘CHALLENGE’ (see here for help). You only need to opt-in once, and you can take part in all challenges from that date onwards.

2. Complete Daily Challenges, as listed below. Each Daily Challenge is available from 00:00 ET to 23:59 ET.

3. You will receive a ticket to a Daily Challenge All-in Shootout tournament within 48 hours of completing your Daily Challenge. You will need to manually register for the shootout you have chosen, and you can find them listed in the PokerStars lobby under ‘Tourney’ > ‘Freeroll’.

The Daily Challenge All-in Shootout tournaments take place every day at 15:00 ET (no late registration available) from January 4-February 2, each with $1,000 on offer for the winner. Best of all, you don’t even need to play to win. All players who register with their ticket will be all-in every hand until there is a winner!

4. Complete 10 or more Daily Challenges and get a ticket for the Final Challenge All-in Shootout on February 4 at 15:00 ET, with a prize pool of $100,000, plus 10,000 exclusive gifts from the VIP Store, including special PokerStars t-shirts. All tickets to the final will be credited to the winning player’s accounts by no later than February 3.

Those shades cost him $7000 and they are way too dark for a mobile device.



I'm in this daily "Challenge". Not got a smart mobile/tablet nor am I making a deposit so:

Play one SnG today, 1 VPP on a bit of Zoom tomorrow and then the Sunday Storm. Wheee what do I win?

I'm in the same boat as you, going to have to skip a few challenges. But should still be able to complete plenty and get entry into the all-in shootouts or flippaments as most call them.

These "flippaments" start on the 4th so I imagine tickets for each day should be awarded in time for the day after each challenge.

Hi Fabyen,

I completed the 'Opt-In' for the January Daily Challenges yesterday, but don't appear to have received confirmation [via email]. How do we know if we have successfully registered?

Also not received a ticket [as yet] for completing today's challenge?

Many thanks,

Tony

They didn't send me an e-mail to confirm I was registered but they sent me an e-mail today to say that I completed yesterdays task successfully. So if you made a deposit you should be good

Confirmation for being opted in will not be an email, it should be in the form of a pop-up in the PokerStars client. I'm unsure you still receive this pop-up if you are confirmed when not currently signed into the client however, so if you have concerns please feel free to contact support@pokerstars.com. As for not receiving your ticket yet I wouldn't worry about this as many people haven't yet, these things can take some time. Just be sure you completed the challenge during the right time period (Eastern Time).

The promotional details state: "•Play one real money Sit & Go: Any Sit & Go with a real money entry fee which can be found under the Sit & Go tab in the PokerStars desktop client or mobile/tablet app. Play money tournaments, tournaments without a fee and FPP buy-in tournaments do not count towards the Challenge." This leads me to believe the $0.02 SnG's would NOT count as they have no fee. The Minimum buy-in that has a fee is the $0.10 SnG's.


Hope this answers everyone's questions,

Chris

As mentioned above I wouldn't worry, it can take up to 48 hours for these tickets to be awarded. And as the challenges started on the 2nd and the first all-in shootout is the 4th, even with a 48 hour wait you should not miss out on any tournament you have qualified for.

Love the CHALLENGE! Can you believe that I have to purchase a certain type of pre-paid MasterCard because all my credit cards, including my MasterCard will not work on poker sites. I could not get it yesterday because nobody was around to get it and I am still off he infected foot (they say up t 3-4 months recovery, how insane!), but today I did put CHALLENGE in Star Code and played 3 $15 Sit &Goes for a handsome $149. I trust I did the right things as it said Todays Challenge, then Sit & Go.

I expected an email from PSO re: star code but do I assume not; rather, a ticket and does this replace Big Bang............Also I play Zoom and pardon my ignorance but what is ring Zoom.

As always thanks for your help fellow and sister PSOers

Ring ZOOM is the regular ZOOM rather than the ZOOM tournaments.





That reply looks like a Kid playing at racing cars lol

I got my e-mail for the first challenge at 7:21pm last night.

I would imagine it will probably be the same time, roughly, tonight.
