6 Mar 2018
The next opportunity for players to win online is the Spinball Giveaway All-In Shootout on 12 March at 3 p.m., for which players can earn a ticket by collecting at least one puzzle piece on any two days between now and 11 March.
Opportunities to win at PokerStars Live events include the Super Series 6, which is being held in Manila from now until 11 March, the PokerStars London Series from 9-11 March, and PokerStars MEGASTACK San Remo from 12-18 March.
A total of 14 players received a Platinum Pass from the following events in February: Macau Poker Cup 28, PSPC Anniversary Cashers Freeroll, FRESH Series, Manila Super Series 5 and PokerStars MEGASTACK London.
In addition to the monthly scheduled PSPC Giveaway tournaments, online opportunities to win were the PSPC Selected Daily Tournaments All-in Shootout Giveaway, PSPC Monthly Sunday Cashers All-in Shootout Giveaway, PSPC Live Events All-in Shootout Giveaway and Stars Rewards Players Championship Giveaway.
To date, a total of 47 players have been awarded a Platinum Pass. Of these players, 20 secured their Platinum Pass at PokerStars Live events and 27 while playing online at PokerStars.
As it stands, Russia has the highest number of players to have been awarded a Platinum Pass, with five players heading to the Bahamas next January. This is closely followed by Ukraine with four players, and the U.S. and Canada with three players each.
More than 250 players have yet to be awarded a PSPC Platinum Pass, which grants free entry into the $25,000 buy-in event in the Bahamas from 6-10 January 2019. An estimated $8 million worth of free tournament packages will be given away, and an additional $1 million will be contributed to the prize pool for first prize.
