Tetris challenge on Pokerstars.

The tetris challenge was introduced yesterday by pokerstars ( at least on ps.it).
They are definetely giving away more money compared to the former leaderboards. But the way, has anyone figured out exactly how does it work?
You need to play more spins, but how many exactly? I guess that the number is variable, but ps didn't release precise rules.

Its a leaderboard that is based on volume only basically. Will fill the games with alot of mass table grinders.

no, it's not about volume. It actually matters whether you win or not. I Still don't get how many spins you need to play in order to complete it. As today the lobby has a technical issue I don't even know whether I completed it or not

it works on the more games you win the more lines you clear, so the game length is variable for everyone, but once you get to about 20 games if you loose 2 in a row its very likely game over for you, it will tell you at the end of the spin and in the lobby how you are doing

At first sight it looks like a volume promo but its really not, because you only gain leaderboard points while the mini game is active, but as you level up the chance of game over increases massively. Ran some simulations and seems like max 40 games until game over but on average around 15-25 games. Just a little rakeback promo with around 1-2 BI EV daily at the lowest stakes, decreasing as stakes increase.

Re: Tetris challenge on Pokerstars.

so if i understand correct.
While multitabling Spins, for example two games.
It could be that you are "game over" for registering a 2nd Spin&Go, while might winning the other Spin&Go.
So 1-tabling above level 1 is actually pretty important?

Re: Tetris challenge on Pokerstars.

I played my first one of these, and won. Then, part-way through the second game, the score in the box in the bottom left reset, then "game over" was displayed shortly after. What did I do wrong? Are the blocks in the bottom left meant to do anything?

Re: Tetris challenge on Pokerstars.

Anyone else having an issue where PS is not keeping Tetris scores early in the day? I played 14 spins starting at 1:30am and won 8 tournaments...most of them were 2x. My Tetris board never showed a score. Considering I won 58% of my tournaments and that I never lost more than 2 in a row, and had a 5 game win strea...my Tetris score should be quite high with low lines.

This has happened a few time to me
