PokerStars introduces Power Up collectibles promo
The first signs of Power Up marketing are finally here, although not in the full blown manner that you might expect. PokerStars' new promotion, Collectibles, aims to familiarize the players with the Power Up avatars whilst playing Sit & Go and Spin & Go formats.
How does it work?
Promotion, found in Special Offers tab, offers "random, instant cash prizes to be won when you collect limited edition digital Collectibles! Players can opt-in this promotion via Challenges Window to receive a ‘Collectibles Album’ with space for 13 different Collectibles. When you make a row of three in your album you’ll get an instant random cash reward of up to $1,000!"
Collecting "rare collectibles" - every album also has space for four of those - will give you an instant reward of up to $3,000!
How to get Collectibles
Collectibles are awarded by spinning the Collectibles Reel. First spin of the wheel is free and you also get another free spin every day until the end of the week. The reel can be found in ‘My Stars’ menu under ‘Game Tickets’.
You can earn 3 more reel spins by playing three Sit & Go (that also includes Power Up!) or Spin & Go tournaments (or any combination of the two).
In addition to the seven free tickets all players can get each week, you can play Spin & Go’s or Sit & Go’s to earn up to 20 additional tickets per week, each valid for three spins of the reel. This means players can spin the reel up to 67 times per week.
|One week||Frequency||Amount of spins|
|Free spin||Every day||7|
|3 games of Sit & Go or Spin & Go||Up to 20 times||60|
Another valuable prize for participating in this promotion is the option of winning a Platinum Pass package to the PokerStars Players NL Hold'em Championship.
This is done by "completing a row or collecting a rare Collectible by January 28 in order to receive entry to an All-in Shootout where we will award a $30K+ Platinum Pass package to the PokerStars Players NL Hold'em Championship in January 2019!"
The above mentioned All-in Shootouts will take place at 13:13 ET on January 22 (for players receiving entries in week one) and January 29 (for players receiving entries in week two), each awarding a package.
With all this spotlight on the Power Up avatars we hope to see more development of the characters and possibly their backstories in the upcoming months... Who knows what else they've got in store?
