Terms & Conditions

What is being offered

Players who make their first ever real money deposit of $10 or more using bonus code STARS1000, can claim a 100% bonus of up to $1,000 and up to $75 in extra tournament tickets.

When is the offer being conducted

This offer runs from 10:00 EDT on September 29, 2022 and is ongoing.

Who is eligible to take part and how can you qualify

The offer is only available to players who have registered for a new Stars Account via this page after 10:00 EDT on September 29, 2022 and have not previously made any real money deposits at PokerStars.

To be eligible for the offer, players must:

  1. make a deposit of $10 or more using bonus code STARS1000 in the Cashier;
  2. play real money poker on the site within 120 days after making the qualifying deposit; and
  3. collect the requisite redemption points (as specified below) during the 4 months period.

Players may make up to 3 qualifying deposits so as to receive the maximum reward payable under this offer, provided that all qualifying deposits: (i) are made within 60 days from the date of the first qualifying deposit; and (ii) are made using bonus code STARS1000.

If, after making their first qualifying deposit, players activate a separate deposit offer prior to completing any further qualifying deposits permitted as part of this offer, then players must: (i) ensure that all permitted qualifying deposits for this offer are conducted within 60 days from the date of the first qualifying deposit; and (ii) fulfil all necessary criteria as set out in these Terms & Conditions.

If no bonus code is used when making a qualifying deposit, and provided that all applicable terms of this offer are fulfilled, then:

  1. players may contact Support via our Help Center within 7 days from the date of their first qualifying deposit so that their Stars Account can be credited with the relevant reward; or
  2. if more than 7 days but less than 3 months have passed from the date of the first qualifying deposit, players may still be credited with the relevant reward as long as they contact Support before the expiry of the 3 months.

Claiming and redeeming the offer

Upon successful qualifying deposit, players will:

a) receive up to $75 worth of tournament tickets issued in multiple instalments over the course of a bonus period of up to five days following the qualifying deposit, based on their first deposit amount as follows:

Tournament tickets will be credited inside a Chest. Players will need to open the Chests to claim their tickets.

Tickets are non-transferable and cannot be exchanged for cash, T-Money or other tickets.

All tickets expire 7 days after being credited. Any unused tickets issued as part of this offer will be forfeited.

Unopened Chests will expire 7 days after being credited.

b) Activate a 100% bonus. The reward will be paid out for each $5 (or currency equivalent) increment of the qualifying deposit made immediately after the wagering requirements have been fulfilled. Players have 4 months after each qualifying deposit to earn all the redemption points needed to release their bonus.

The amount of reward that players can receive will depend on the number of redemption points that players earn during the relevant period. No reward will be credited for a period exceeding 4 months from the first qualifying deposit.

Players can check any bonuses they have, alongside information on expiry dates, redemption point requirements and more under the 'My Rewards' menu.

Wagering requirements and limitations by type of game

All tickets issued as part of this bonus can be used to register and play any tournaments with buy-ins corresponding to the value of the ticket.

Redemption points clearance rates for the 100% bonus are 1,500 redemption points to release $5.

What else do you need to know

If any amount is withdrawn at any time after making a qualifying deposit, any subsequent deposits cannot count as qualifying deposits. However, any pre-withdrawal qualifying deposit continues to be valid, and players can still collect any reward generated.

We reserve the right to withhold rewards if there is reason to suspect that a deposit is fraudulent, or that it has not been made with the intention of using it to play real money games.

Players can only take advantage of one first deposit offer across all PokerStars products.
