PokerStars Preparing for December Gaming Options

Every online poker room offers special deals including promotions and tournament events each month. Top brands such as PokerStars offer gaming options for the holidays as well as regular options so players will continue to log online on a regular basis to enjoy real money game play. Because November is coming to an end, players now have the month of December to look forward to and all that PokerStars has in store. Below is a short guide on what you can expect for December from the online poker room.

Christmas Festival

PokerStars has planned a Christmas Festival for their members with as much as $5 million in prizes to be awarded by the end of the year. This is an amazing amount of cash and something that is sure to keep the online poker room busy for some time. The online poker room will be providing a $1 Million Freeroll which is an amazing tournament option. Players have already been able to win seats to this event and can continue to try and earn a spot through tomorrow.

PokerStars is providing daily challenges, with players being able to take part via the Challenge Window. Players will automatically be registered for the All-In Shootout which is a qualifier. This qualifier puts players in line to hopefully win a seat to the freeroll. The top 8,192 players in the qualifier will earn a seat to the freeroll.

Players who miss the deadline will be able to take part in daily challenges set for the 30th of November as well as the 1st of December. Players who take part in this challenge will be able to win a Last Chance Skill Qualifier seat. This event will take place on the 1st. The $1 Million Freeroll will be set for the 1st as well beginning at 14:04ET. Only qualified players can take part with $10,000 provided for the winner and a total of $1 million paid out over the entire tournament.

Christmas Calendar

PokerStars will also be kicking off the month with the Christmas Calendar. Each day until the 25th, players will be able to take part in special events. This portion of the Christmas festivities will offer $2 million in total prize money and bonuses. Something new will be on offer each day so players can enjoy new and exciting poker gaming each time they log in.

The first day will kick off with the $1 Million Freeroll and will be followed every day with something fun such as Spin & Gos, CardHunt events and more. Players can take part by going to the Challenge Window and see what is set for the day. A new event players are sure to enjoy is the MicroMillions Marathon which will take place on the 11th. On this day, 25 events will take place with the last event being a $22 buy-in tournament that has a prize pool guaranteed at $1 million.

PokerStars will also be offering a special Sunday Million in honor of the holiday. Because Christmas Day will be on Sunday this year, the online poker room will be offering the Sunday Million on Monday, the 26th. The event will offer up $2 million guaranteed prize money. First place will take home at least $200,000 with the possibility of earning more depending on the amount of players competing.

To take part, players can pay the $215 buy-in or take part in a satellite with buy-ins started at $1. The satellites will run throughout the month, giving players plenty of time to earn a seat to the big event before it takes place.
