World Cup Football Fever Reaches Poker Stars - $1M Prize Pool!
It seems that every popular online poker room is jumping on the World Cup Fever bandwagon, and Poker Stars is no exception, offering $1.7 million to be won by lucky poker playing punters in a promotional campaign that's being fronted by Brazilian soccer legend and later poker player, Ronaldo.
For the entirety of the event, from June 11 until July 13, PokerStars are running daily football fever challenges in which $500,000 is being given away for poker players who can correctly predict the results of some of the big football games that are taking place. There's also the Football Fever Phase Tournament with a guaranteed prize pool of $1million including $100,000 for the winner. This amazing tournament costs just $27 to enter, and if you survive Phase 1 of the competition (and you can enter as many times as you like) you'll get to play in Phase 2 on Sunday, July 6 at 12:25 ET for a chance to take a share of that mammoth $1,000,000 prize pool.
Finally, there is the Football Fever Missions section, where each day you will be given a poker-related mission to complete, such as playing in ten Real Money SnG tournaments. If you succeed in your mission, you'll be given a free ticket into the Football Fever Mission All-in Shootout game, which has a prize pool of $75,000 with $7,500 going to the winner.
If you're already a player at PokerStars then you'll notice you have your own 'Football Fever' section within the PokerStars poker room client.
