PokerStars Prepares for WCOOP and the Relaunch of PokerStars Play

Publish: 25.08.2017

PokerStars has recently announced the World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP), which will take place from September 3 to September 26, consisting of 81 events.

The Main Event will come with a $5,200 buy in and a $10 million guarantee, with $60 million in guarantees to be handed out throughout the competition.

Giving Recs an Equal Chance

PokerStars has focused on making the recreational players feel more comfortable in WCOOP. This should be achieved by adding low-level events and with $700,00 in different giveaways hidden in Stars Rewards Chests.

The main goal is to make WCOOP a competition where all players can equally compete.

Tiers with low stakes will allow recreational players to have the chance to be crowned a champion.

But, PokerStars gave their best to create a truly exciting offer outside of the WCOOP schedule, which includes more than a $1 million in added value, giveaways and promotions.

Prizes and Giveaways

For all those who lose money in the tournament, PokerStars has a great offer – a free ticket into a Bubble Freeroll, where players will compete for one of three Main Event seats.

Giveaways come in the form of Stars Rewards Chests, while Main Event seats are randomly awarded as a part of added prize money worth $700,000.

All those who made a final table during the last year’s WCOOP Main Event will receive a free ticket for the daily Seat Added Satellite, but will also have the chance to win a Main Event seat.

PokerStars Play

PokerStars will once again launch its free-to-play social casino and poker application.

PokerStars Play went live back in 2013, but was replaced two years later.

The application includes Texas Hold’em, Omaha, Spin & Go, and casino games and will be exclusively available for download in the United States and Australia.

The PokerStars Play app is available for Android and iOS devices.
