PokerStars are giving away $400,000 in SCOOP Main Event tournament tickets via a deposit raffle that takes place next week. Have you got your ticket yet?
Unless you have been living under a rock in recent weeks, you will be well aware that [geolink href=”https://www.pokernewsreport.com/pokerstars”]PokerStars[/geolink]´ Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) is taking place right now and that the series culminates on May 24th with three Main Events (high, medium and low buy-ins) with combined guaranteed prize pools of $7 million.
What may have escaped your notice is that two days before the Main Events, PokerStars is holding an “All-in Shootout Deposit Raffle” in which the top 2,048 players will each win tickets to one of the feature tournaments. In addition to that, the top sixteen players in the shootout will also compete in an $85,000 “last longest” challenge.
How to Enter the SCOOP Deposit Raffle
As the name suggests, the SCOOP Deposit Raffle is open to every player who makes a deposit of $25 or more into their account using the PokerStars bonus code “SCOOP2015”. Deposits have to be made by 23:59pm (ET) on Thursday 21st May for the all-in shootout which takes place at 9:47am (ET) on Friday 22nd May.
You don´t even have to be logged into your account to play in the “All-in Shootout Deposit Raffle” as every player will automatically be all-in on every hand until the winners are determined. Winners will automatically be sent an email advising them of their win, as they will have to manually register for the SCOOP Main Event. The prizes for the “All-in Shootout Deposit Raffle” are:
- The top 16 players win an entry into the $10,300 buy-in SCOOP High Main Event
- Players who place 17th to 128th win an entry into the $1,050 buy-in SCOOP Medium Main Event
- Players who place 129th to 2,048th win an entry into the $109 buy-in SCOOP Low Main Event
Players are limited to just one deposit raffle ticket – irrespective of how many qualifying deposits you make – and you do have to manually register for the “All-in Shootout Deposit Raffle”. If you withdraw any funds prior to the shootout event, your entry will be voided.
$85,000 SCOOP Last Longest Challenge
In addition to winning tickets to the $10,300 buy-in SCOOP High Main Event (guaranteed to pay the winner $1,000,000), the top sixteen players will also compete in an $85,000 last longest challenge (so it might be worth following the conclusion of the shootout to find out who your fifteen opponents are).
The final player left standing in the SCOOP High Main Event (from the sixteen players who won their seats in the raffle) will pick up a $50,000 in addition to any cash they collect in the tournament. The second-highest placed player from the raffle will win a $25,000 bonus, while the third-highest placed player will score an extra $10,000.
