PokerStars and BetStars have joined forces to give players the chance to win either a PokerStars Festival package to Dublin, Lille or Bucharest or simply boost their poker bankroll.

This is all thanks to their new part poker, part betting promotion that also happens to coincide with one of the UK’s most prominent Horse Racing festivals, the flat racing summer favourite, Royal Ascot.

By taking part in the $2 buy-in Big Race, on Sunday, June 18 15:00 (BST), players are rewarded for a decent showing at the tables with Festival packages or free bets and “sponsorships” on competing horses in one of the festival’s biggest races.

How it works

BetStars

The Big Race is a $2 buy-in poker tournament running at PokerStars this coming Sunday which gets started at 15:00 (BST).

Instead of cash prizes, the winner of the tournament will walk away with a PokerStars Festival package to either Dublin, Lille of Bucharest plus a €1,100 seat into the Main Event. Other winners will win free bets and are randomly assigned a horse that will run in the Gold Cup next Thursday, June 22, the highlight of Royal Ascot.

The amount of Big Race winners is dependent on the number of horses running (at the time of writing this is 27) but should your allotted horse be withdrawn before the race gets underway, you will receive a free $5 bet in place of the non-runner. In fact, everyone cashing in the Big Race receives a free $5 bet which can be used on the sporting event of your choosing.

The top four prize structure is as follows:

  • 1st place: A PokerStars Festival package (choice of Dublin, Lille or Bucharest) worth at least $2,000
  • 2nd place: A free $100 BetStars bet
  • 3rd place: A free $50 BetStars bet
  • 4th place: A free $25 BetStars bet

Royal Ascot runs for five days next week from Tuesday June 20 until Saturday June 24.
