PokerStars is to run a Winter Series for players in southern Europe and Italy, closing out the year and ringing in the 2022 poker calendar. Three weeks of action have been promised, running from December 25, 2021 to January 16 2022.
Massive Guarantees for France, Spain, and PortugalThe PokerStars community in France, Spain, and Portugal has a monster schedule of 299 events to look forward to with more than €10 million in guarantees.
Buy-ins will range from €10 to €250 with a €125 buy-in Main Event taking place on January 9 that has a cool €1,000,000 guarantee.
If that sounds like it’s for you but it’s outside of your bankroll, then take a look at the different ways you can qualify for the Main Event.
- The Winter Series Ticket Machine is already up and running, ready to award €175,000 worth of tickets for free entry into the Main Event. Simply opt-in via the challenges window and play a WinterSeries event to gain entry into the daily draw. Higher buy-in events give you more tickets in the draw.
- Players can also receive free entry into Winter Series Depositer Freeroll by depositing €25 using the code “WINTER21”. €25,000 worth of tickets for the Main Event will be given away in this freeroll tournament.
- Any player busting empty-handed from a Winter Series event will receive a freeroll ticket for the Winter Series Second Chance on the following day.
- For players on the .fr server €6 Spin & Go’s will be awarding tickets to enter the Main Event.
PokerStars Winter Series ItalyThe PokerStars Winter Series in Italy will also run from December 25, 2021 to January 16 2022 with 138 events to choose from with a guarantee of more than €6 million.
The Main Event will cost €250 to buy-in, taking place on January 16 with a €500,000.
Players wanting to satellite into the bigger events on the cheap can qualify via the same method as the Southern European players in Depositor Freerolls, Second Chance Freerolls and €12.50 Spin & Go’s.
