POKERSTARS TO GIVE AWAY MORE THAN $1.5 MILLION IN ‘NOVEMBER MISSION WEEKS’ PROMOTION
ONCHAN, Isle of Man – November 5, 2013 – PokerStars today unveiled a new promotion called ‘November Mission Weeks’, which will award more than $1.5 million in cash giveaway prizes to players of all abilities and stakes across three weeks.
November Mission Weeks gives PokerStars players the chance to take on one of five ‘Missions’ each week, ranging in difficulty from Very Easy to Advanced. When a mission is completed (see http://www.pokerstars.eu/poker/promotions/mission-weeks/ for information on the different missions and how to complete them) a player gets a ticket into a ‘Mission All-in Shootout’ with prize pools ranging from $10,000 (Mission Very Easy) to $250,000 (Mission Advanced). Best of all, players don’t even need to play the Mission All-in Shootout tournament to secure a prize – all players who have registered in advance will be all-in every hand until there’s a winner!
Here are the Mission levels and prizes available for each of the Mission Weeks:
- Mission Very Easy $10,000 prize pool – $1,000 for first
- Mission Easy $30,000 prize pool – $3,000 for first
- Mission Simple $75,000 prize pool – $7,500 for first
- Mission Possible $150,000 prize pool – $15,000 for first
- Mission Advanced $250,000 prize pool – $25,000 for first
The three November Mission Weeks run November 4-10, November 11-17 and November 18-24, and the weekly Mission All-in Shootout tournaments take place on Monday 11th, 18th, and 25th at 15.00 ET.
