      Hey NijeVaznoKoSam,

      The tickets are issued within 48 hours. So when you complete a challenge, you won't get the freeroll ticket instantly.

      Also you'll receive an email when you do receive the ticket. So that way you'll know if you've completed a challenge. For example, I received my ticket for the first challenge yesterday :)

      Hope that helps!

      Regards,
      Tino

      thank you tino,

      i just thought, that it would be usual to see his own progress. lets say you wish to earn every day that daily chance ticket, then you completely lose the overview for what and when and if you get those tickets.

      As NijeVaznoKoSam says, whether it's SH or FR shouldn't matter, as long as it's a Zoom Ring Game, all should be fine :)

      Got my first ticket, won a massive $7.50 in the first freeroll :f_cool:


      lucky you... i am still waiting... :s_cry:
      Which challenge did you complete? Like I mentioned it takes up to 48 hours for players to receive their tickets so maybe it just requires a little further patience :)

      Also you can always email their support of course, and they'll be happy to help you as soon as they can. Easiest way to do this is from the Help menu in your PokerStars software imo.

      I got a large 1.50$ :f_love:

      I guess these really are straight up lottery tickets basically with a high chance of getting even a small amount. Heck as a cash player i can't complain :s_biggrin: beats the usual tournament ticket where i usually don't do well enough for the time investment.

      Hey mute20,

      As far as I know, they should indeed count. As long as you pay a real money fee, the tournament should count!
