All real money players have chance to win big in five prize draw tourneys  

ONCHAN, Isle of Man – August 1, 2013 – PokerStars today announced the launch of VIP Club Month, which will give all real money PokerStars players the chance to win a share of $1 million in cash rewards and World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) tickets in September.

PokerStars players who win freerolls or earn enough points for SilverStar VIP status during August will receive tickets for the $1 million VIP Giveaway, which takes place from September 2-6. The giveaway will take the form of five ‘no-skill’ tournaments where players will be ‘all-in’ every hand until there is a winner. This is the first time that PokerStars has run this sort of promotional tournament, and will make for a fun sweat as players log on and watch to see how far they go and what they win.

Over $1 million in tens of thousands of prizes will be split across the five tourneys, with more than $200,000 up for grabs in each prize draw tournament. In total more than $400,000 in WCOOP tickets will be given away and $600,000 in cash prizes. For details about how to enter and be in with a chance of winning, go to
