PokerStars is always on the lookout for new ways to engage players and keep them coming back. The operator’s latest such effort is Power Path, a promotion created with recreational players in mind, looking to provide them with a fun and affordable way to qualify for big live and online tournaments that would otherwise be out of their reach.
There are many great things about PokerStars’ Power Path, but one of the best things is that you can get up to $15 in free value every month. The only requirement is to log into your account each day and play a single hand of real-money poker, earning you a free $0.50 ticket.
While the tickets are somewhat limited as they can only be used to progress through the Power Path tree and not in any other events, they are still well worth claiming. Read on to learn how you can get in on the action and what you stand to win at the end of the path.

Free Daily Tickets for Everyone
PokerStars is going all out with its Power Path promo. All real-money players are eligible to claim one free ticket for Step 1 tournaments every day. You need to log into your account, opt in for the promotion through the 'Challenges’ section, and you will be all set.
Starting from the day you opt-in, and every following day thereafter, you will receive a chest containing your $0.50 Step 1 ticket as soon as you play a hand of real money poker. The technical requirement is to generate $0.01 in rake, but the main idea is that you need to have some money in your balance and log in every day.
These tickets are valid for Step 1 $0.50 Power Path Spin & Go’s. These are played using classic Spin & Go rules, with three players and the prize for the winner determined at the start of the tournament. Most often, that prize will be a Step 2 ticket, but there is also a chance of getting Step 3 and Step 4 tickets, and even the main prize in the form of one of Power Passes.
What Exactly Is Power Path by PokerStars?
This whole thing may sound a bit confusing if this is your first time hearing about PokerStars Power Path, so here is a quick explanation of how it works.
Power Path is designed as a four-step qualification system for players who want to win their way into big PokerStars LIVE and online tournaments. The first step is the $0.50 Spin & Go tournament, and that is what your free daily ticket is for.
The next step is either a $1 sit-and-go or a $1.50 tournament, followed by a $11 MTT. Finally, Step 4 of the Power Path is a $109 MTT where winners receive Power Passes:
- Bronze Power Pass: $109 value
- Silver Power Pass: $2500 value
- Gold Power Pass: $10,300 value
Step qualification systems are nothing new to online poker, but a few things make Power Path stand out among the rest.
First, you cannot unregister from any tournaments and take cash or tournament dollars. Once your journey begins, it can end in two ways. You either bust from one of the tournaments along the way before qualifying for the next step, or you make it all the way into the Step 4 MTT and potentially win one of the Power Passes.

Secondly, players are not allowed to buy into the Step 4 MTT directly. While the tournament has a nominal value of $109, you cannot pay to enter, and there are no re-entries. You have to at least go through one of the qualification steps to get to the final stage.
If you are someone who enjoys tournaments, these free tickets provide a great opportunity to try your luck at going all the way. Power Passes cannot be cashed out, but you can use them to buy into live and online PokerStars tournaments and cover related expenses like travel and accommodation.
It is a perfect excuse to play in one of the tournaments you always wanted to play, knowing that, if you do qualify, you cannot take money instead. And you could potentially do all that with virtually no risk involved!
