How to qualify and how the Competition works

  1. In order to be eligible for the Competition, Entrants must: (i) have a valid Facebook account which must not be deactivated, suspended or otherwise prevent us from viewing the account holder’s comments on our Facebook posts prior to the random prize draw taking place; (ii) within the timeframe ("Competition Period") stated in the dedicated Competition post ("Competition Post") that the Promoter posts on the PokerStars Facebook Page at ("PS Facebook Page") post a reply to the Competition Post containing their PokerStars username and (if applicable) any hashtag that the Promoter has stated in the Competition Post must be used in the Competition entries. This is the only entry route to the Competition and entries that do not comply with the provisions of this paragraph will not be eligible.
  2. The winner(s) will be randomly selected from the pool of eligible replies. The random prize draw will take place within one week after the end of the Competition Period.
  3. Winners will be announced in a comment on the Competition Post once they have been credited (as explained in paragraph 14).

The Prizes

  1. The number of winners and the number of tickets (this can be one ticket per winner or one ticket bundle per winner) and their value will be announced in the Competition Post.
  2. The ticket (or ticket bundle) will be credited to the winners’ PokerStars account (with the username contained in the Competition entry) within a week after the random prize draw and will expire in 1 year (unless stated differently in the Competition Post).
  3. Prizes may be replaced with a substitute prize of equal or greater value, if circumstances beyond our control make it necessary to do so. All prizes are non-exchangeable, non-transferable and there are no cash alternatives. Tournament tickets can be used to register and play any tournament on the Site with buy-ins corresponding to the value of the entry.

What else do Entrants need to know?

  1. The Promoter reserves the right to disqualify an Entrant and forfeit their prize where the Promoter has reasonable grounds to believe there has been a breach of these Special Terms and/or the General Terms and/or any terms and conditions relating to participation in the tournaments and/or where an Entrant has gained unfair advantage in participating in the Competition and/or has used fraudulent means in connection with the Competition and/or the tournaments. The Promoter will be the final arbiter in any decisions, which will be final and binding and no correspondence will be entered into in this respect.
  2. If the Promoter wishes to promote the Competition and the prize winners for PR purposes, it will seek the winners’ consent and the winners may be asked to provide a quote about the win, their name, their town/city of residence and a photograph for publication on the Site and the Promoter’s social channels.
  3. The Promoter, its group companies and its agencies and contractors, shall not be liable for any problems or technical malfunction of any computer on-line systems, servers or providers, computer equipment or software, failure of any entry to be received on account of technical problems or traffic congestion on the internet, Facebook or at any website, including any injury to or resulting from participation or downloading of any materials in the Competition.

  5. To the extent permitted by applicable laws, the Promoter does not accept any liability for any damage, loss, injury or disappointment suffered by any Entrant as a result of either participating in the Competition or not winning a prize.
