Playing Jacks or Better and the same thing happened. The progress bar is stuck on 465, even though I hit a straight and my reward is displayed at the top of the page (woohoo, another 50 cents).

Just FYI we just launched a new promotion today... "Collectibles"

Two interesting features;
1. Free to take a shot every day. No play required.
2. Rewards Spin&Go *and Sit&Go" play.

Fill boots. Feedback welcome.

Click the main Collectibles image in the challenge window.

Spoiler; it is likely to be something like 55% $1 etc for the “rows” but a little tastier for the Rare Cards.

Not sure if it's player specific.

It is. And yours is probably the best anyone is getting, I'm half convinced you got paid to post this best-case scenario.

That being said, this promo is even worse than people imagine:



Most won't even get the ****ing rare cards or complete the rows because of different probabilities on the "common" cards.

So just to be clear:



My chances to win $3k are 0,05% * 0,0005% = 1:400,000,000

Apologies.

So then you're either a massive, massive whale and they expect you to deposit again - or they give those payouts to people they know won't play the challenge anyways.

The latter I'll use the daily free spin but have no intention of depositing to take part in the promo. I rarely play Spin/Sit'n'Gos so you may be right.

And once again... 0.0005% probability to win $1,000 come on guys! Make it $100 or $50 with much bigger chance...

Well.. who sees a pattern?

Remember the McDonalds scratch cards where some were super rare and then we found out they were just given to friends and family?

Re: ***PokerStars Promotions Ideas/Suggestions/Opinions Thread***

I never comment because i gave up on pokerstars promotions a long time ago, ( i remember the last good promotions that were the "win with random hands and get all ins shootouts which brought thousand of players in the zoom pool and also were great value") but this "promo" is really a joke, you are giving players a less than 5% chance of getting $1, the EV of playing the daily spin only is probably less than a penny.

I guess people in charge think recs will like the spinning wheel and deposit but when they get $0 at the end of the week i dont think they will be happy.

I rather have a 0.0005% to win $1000 than a 0.005% chance to win 100. There is no reason to believe that they would change the ev of the promotion. Well at least not increase it

The promotion seems fun, but I play elsewhere now. Would actually be fun if they had a trading card game for money.

During last 2x "promo" i was downgraded to 0,25$ guaranteed win - I play up to 15$. This promo is even worse as it takes place only once per week. I guess it's not even worth time to spin that very very slow spinning wheel for 10 minutes in a row to spin all 60 spins for even 25 cents spins winning player.

At least make auto-spin possible, so 0,25$ winning players are not giving up their hourly wasting time spinning it manually!

It's 89,9995% to win 0,25$, 10% to win 0,5$ and 0,0005% to win 1000$. Rare card is worth 0,75$ 89,9995% of the time and 1,5$ 10% of the time.

Lots of different prize tables depending on player - I think this is one of the lowest. Good luck with the spins.

Here's an idea Stars - go get a rusty metal pipe and stick it up your collective asses.
Which Spin-Stakes do you have to play to get the tickets? 15s?

25c. Which makes no sense, as my last 1200 games have been $7s exclusively. Stars is really jumping the shark, there is no way they're gonna bring people to Power Up using this ****.

Great job David, you're incompetent.

That's why you should only post lowest tier prices and probabilities in the public forum, not some "special whale bonus package" prices and probabilities.

Okay.. so not only was it impossible for me to finish the whole thing even with all spins - the one I did win in the top row didn't even get me a ****ing reward! (the tournament ticket is for getting a rare card)

But I guess I should be.. happy? for getting TWO rares?
