A PokerStars football frenzy

When the Winer Series kicks off, online poker players can get in the Super Bowl spirit with dozens of football-inspired events. The 30-event series includes a variety of buy-ins ranging from $30 to $500. A few nice examples on the schedule include:

  • Jan. 25 –  $200 Coin Toss Turbo PKO, $15,000 guaranteed
  • Jan. 26 – $30 First Down Mini Sunday Special, $15,000 guaranteed
  • Jan. 29 – $500 Turnover High Roller, $35,000 guaranteed

The $300 Main Event, fittingly dubbed “The Big Game,” is set for Feb. 1 with a hefty $100,000 guarantee. For the big winner, it should be a nice Super Bowl no matter which team comes out on top.

Some PokerStars extras for PA players

New players in Pennsylvania have some extra incentive to get in the game. Simply deposit and qualify for a Depositor Freeroll ticket, which will be held on Feb. 1.

Players who then finish among the top 25 earn a $300 entry into the Winter Series Main Event. That includes $7,500 in total prizes awarded. 

The site will also host second chance all-in shootouts for players who bust out of an event without making the money. Those will be held daily from Jan. 26 – Feb. 1 with $1,000 in Winter Series prizes awarded winners.

In total, the shootouts will have $7,000 in prizes on the line. Here’s a look at the complete PA Winter Series schedule:
