PokerStars and BetStars Launch the Big Race Tournament

One of the leading poker sites, PokerStars, and the company’s sports betting brand, BetStars are launching the Big Race tournament this weekend. This will be the second time the Big Race tourney will run. If you’re wondering about the rewards, this tournament offers a lot in that regard including $2,500 worth of free bets.

If you haven’t had a chance to participate in the Big Race this March, here’s how the tournament works. PokerStars features an online poker tourney with a $2 buy-in. If you happen to be one of the lucky players to finish in the top 500, you’ll get free bets from BetStars.

These free bets have different values, ranging from $2 to $50, depending on your performance in the tournament. So, players who finish anywhere between 300th and 500th place will receive $2 worth of free bets. Those who take places between 100th and 299th will win $5 free bets. This amount increases to $10 for those ranking between the 10th and 99th place.

Furthermore, the top 20 finishers stand a chance to win an even better prize. Namely, apart from free bets, the best 20 players of the Big Race tournament have a chance to win the EPT Prague package worth €7,000. So, how PokerStars plans on choosing the EPT package winner?

The fan-favourite poker platform decided to mix poker and Formula 1. Namely, the Russian Grand Prix, taking place on September 30th, is the race this tournament is all about. So, each of the top 20 players will be assigned one of the drivers in the race. The player whose driver wins the competition will win the EPT Prague package, as well as accommodation at the Prague Hilton for eight nights, and €492 of spending money.

So, if this sounds interesting to you, be sure to join the PokerStars Big Race.
