Players can win holiday packages to the destination of their choice worth up to $5,000 for as little as $0.50

ONCHAN, Isle of Man – August 18, 2016 – Players now have the opportunity to win a $5,000 holiday for just $0.50 in a fast-paced game of poker on PokerStars, an Amaya Inc. (Nasdaq: AYA; TSX: AYA) brand. This new promotion will be supported by a multi-national television and digital advertising campaign, and will feature Spin & Go poker tournaments which have been very popular with new, recreational and mobile poker players.

Spin & Go’s are three-player poker tournaments, which feature a random prize pool that can be won in a matter of minutes. As part of this promotion, the highest prize for a $0.50 buy-in is a $5,000 holiday, with consolation prizes of $500 holidays for the second and third-place finishers. In addition, players also have a chance for smaller prizes including cash prizes from $1 to $12.50.

PokerStars is giving all new players three free entries into special free-to-enter tournaments, with existing players receiving one free tournament entry. These special free-to-enter tournaments will offer ticket prizes that will give players an additional shot at the Spin & Go on Holiday tournaments and  the main $5,000 and $500 holiday prizes.


“I’m learning to paraglide,” said professional poker player and member of Team PokerStars Pro, George Danzer. “If I could recommend a $5,000 holiday, I’d say to go to Salzburg, Austria, and use that as a starting point. There you can get everything from a beginners’ course, up to a professional X-Alps style crossing of the European Alps. As well as being a great city, the surrounding landscape makes paragliding truly spectacular.”

“Clearly, the greatest motorcycle race in the world is the Isle of Man TT races, held just near my home on the Isle of Man at the beginning of June each year,” said professional motorcycle road racer, Conor Cummins. “For $5,000, you could spend two weeks in the Isle of Man, and, depending on where you are coming from, probably include flights too.  It would be a great opportunity to enjoy all the spectacle of one of the world’s most unique sporting events.”


Spin & Go’s launched on PokerStars in September 2014 to great success and world-wide popularity because they are fast and easy for players to start playing. They are especially popular for their ease-of-use on mobile devices because each tournament lasts only a few minutes.

Since their initial launch, players have flocked to PokerStars to take advantage of a number of different prize options and structures such as the $1 million Spin & Go, and special physical prizes with the Cristiano Ronaldo edition. No fewer than 14 poker players have become instant millionaires from winning $1 million in PokerStars Spin & Go’s over the last two years.
