The operator decided to pay special attention to the ladies on Sunday, November 28, by giving away twenty $55 entries for the top 20 finishers in the weekly Women’s Sunday tournament.
The tournament, which has been a regular part of the Sunday schedule at PokerStars, boasts a $22 buyin and is only open to female players, giving them a chance to compete against other ladies in a friendly atmosphere.
This weekend, the event will be especially attractive, with top 20 finishers receiving both the regular cash prize and the $55 entry ticket for the Big 20 Finale on December 5, where they will have a chance to win a share of the $5,000,000 prize pool.
The tournament will also be streamed on the popular streaming platform Twitch by PokerStars brand ambassador GJ Reggie and the lucky player who eliminates her will receive an extra $25 Big 20 Rewind ticket for the 2019 Year of the PSPC event, where a valuable PokerStars Platinum Pass for the next event will be given away to the winner.
Talking about the tournament, Rebecca McAdam Willetts, Associate Director of Consumer Engagement and Public Relations at PokerStars, said: “Adding value and further opportunity and reward to the Women’s Sunday is something we’re passionate about and are seeing a great response to. This is the largest amount of extra value we have added to date to reward fans of our Women’s Sunday while celebrating 20 years of PokerStars.”
“Since March, we’ve been adding tickets for events like SCOOP and WCOOP every month because we want to give more opportunities to see our Women’s Sunday players also show up in storylines surrounding our other prestigious events! Our players have been at the heart of this 20-year journey, so we want our celebrations to be about them, and to act as a heart-felt thank you.”
What is the Big 20 Celebration?
This year, PokerStars is celebrating 20 years since its launch in 2001 and the Big 20 is a massive promotion run by the operator to reward players for their loyalty over the years.
The Big 20 Rewind will culminate in the Big 20 Finale on December 5, a $5,000,000 guaranteed tournament with a $55 buyin. This massive prize pool is bound to attract thousands of players, but significant overlay could still be on the cards, with 100,000 runners needed to reach the goal.
Apart from the valuable tournaments and ticket giveaways such as the one in the Women’s Sunday, PokerStars is also giving away plenty of value through other celebratory promos.
The daily leaderboards for NLH and PLO cash games as well as Spin & Gos and other tournament types are being boosted throughout the month, and the popular Ticket Machine promo is back with tickets for various Big 20 Rewind and Finale events being awarded to players at random.
Big 20 Finale tickets will also be up for grabs through special $0.50 Spin & Go tournaments, running exclusively for the duration of the Big 20 anniversary celebrations.
During the Big 20 promotion, PokerStars will be giving away a variety of extra prizes including trips around the world, electric cars, luxury watches, and of course, millions of dollars in cold hard cash.
For all female online poker players, Sunday, November 28 is the ideal time to take their swing at winning a free entry into the Big 20 Finale, with all of the top 20 finishers in the event automatically getting their ticket for the biggest tournament of the year.
